Not sure what Tunanorth posted that set you off. He is a well respected contributor on this forum and his original comments simply provided some detail. I believe the comments on IGFA rules were simply a reminder that most everyone on a LR trip that fishes the rail has little if any change of holding an IGFA record due to the silly rules they have established. He also notes that it is truly a record regardless of the rules.
I read it. Whos this lolShe was on her honeymoon. She was going to go goose hunting but decided they should go long range.
She also landed a 170 but it was a handoff so didn't count for the jackpot.
Pretty damn cool all around.
Supposedly her husband taught her how to fish long range. But I've only ever seen him catch rat yellowtail so sounds dubious. Lol. Hope he reads this.
Rex, pleasure fishing with you.Her husband fished very well on the trip as well, I can confirm he caught more than rat yellows on this trip for sure.
Every person on the boat had at least 1 YFT over 100lbs.
I don't know for sure what lb test she was using, but for the flyline baits we were all using between 40 & 60 lb for the yellowtail. For the the tuna, we used larger line.
For the record I've always told Kristyn that if I caught a 50 pound yellow it was going on the wall. My biggest is 44. She beat me to it. Made a call this morning. Will be a nice wedding gift to ourselves
Saw an absolutely huge foamer out there and Captain Ray said there were definitely cows in the mix. Unfortunately couldn't get too close to them.Where else are you going to catch an 80lb YT and a 140 YFT on a 6-8 day LR Trip... got to love Guadalupe! I'm sure the other boats that don't have permits for the Lupe are wishing that they did. Still believe there will be a cow YFT caught there this year on an SD based LR boat... Oct, Nov, Dec are traditionally the best months at this spectacular LR destination so we shall see...
Tight lines and blue skies!

They got 2 on poppers, but no cows.
