    Went out on the liberty yesterday, Aug. 1st with 40 anglers. The boat accommodates a large group pretty well. Fished somewhere around the 371 spot. The boat total was 24 fish including yellowtail up to about 20 lbs. Some smaller Bluefin and Yellowfin were also caught. I got skunked. The bait were small sardines, not too lively. My friend caught a yellowtail and a tuna. He used a Lexa 400 baitcaster to cast out away from everyone else. He fishes party boats a lot. There is a real art to fishing a crowded party boat which I still haven't mastered.

    There were a handful of successful fish stops but the bite didn't last very long on any of them. The captain knows how to find fish but it is just a little scratchy out there still, though it is getting better. I saw only one troll fish caught.

    Great report! Appreciate you posting Tim. Sounds like a decent day and you'll be an expert the more you learn and duplicate what your buddy is doing!

    Get a hot bait , don't destroy it hooking it, wind in your face, follow your line, cast as far as needed, have your drag set properly , don't cast over other fishermen. Catch a fish repeat . :720icon:
