    Awesome job!!!

    All these reports are killing me! I've got another 2 weeks minimum before I even have a chance to get out! I'm completely landlocked right now and not digging it!! :(

    I have a dad and his young son who I have promised to take out, and this is exactly what I have been waiting to get them on!

    Congrats to you guys!!

    Perfect. I wish a lot more fishermen would understand the basics of properly preserving their catch!

    Thanks for all the kind words! It is amazing what is happening in our local waters right now.
    I took my bosses grandson out today for a quick 1230-3 run. I intended on getting him some calicos at the point, but the conditions were so flat we headed out further. 30 minutes later he was on his first kelp battling his first yellowtail! We landed 5 on 4 drifts of that kelp which was about 9 miles offshore in US waters. We then headed back in where we found birds diving and fish boiling 6 MILES FROM THE POINT. We cast out and are both bendo on Yellowfin!!! Are you kidding me?? YFT 6 miles from the point. Insane. Kid got his first yellow and tuna today. My goodness what a week! Wish we had more time to chase the bird schools around.
