Been there done that
Left Thursday night the captain Adam and the great New LoAnn crew. Being a overnight there was limited options but everyone was happy fishing the bluefin grounds at about 50 miles. Got to the grounds at about 3:30 and started fishing deep with flat falls and sinker rigs, moved a couple of times and one flat fall fish came at the gray. After that we started moving looking for the bluefin schools and it wasn’t long and we found them. Crew put up the kite with frozen flying fish and within 10-15 minutes we were hooked with first bluefin, another flying fish was rigged and my number was called, again in 10-15 minutes I was on and end up with a 130lb bluefin. Captain Adam on my shoulder making sure I made no mistakes and with two gaffs I had my first triple digit fish. Moved multiple times during the day with the crew finding the schools with multiple hookups on the kite. A small yellowtail came on a big kelp patty stop and I missed one being rusty and impatient. A lone yellowfin came on a stop while kiting for bluefin. Two bait fish were caught by a single fisherman, both were impressive catches. one was about 60-70lb long soak flylined on a Trinidad and a easy 100+ on a sinker rig with a Mac. I have fished the New LoAnn many times and whether I caught fish or not I have never been been disappointed whether it is Marcus or Adam they both fish hard. This is a first class operation and I hate to advertise this because it is sometimes impossible to get a spot but they deserve the accolades. Food was great and deck crew are friendly, work hard to keep your catch fresh, and they never stop working to help you catch fish.

Hey bigdog!

I was on the trip as well. I was the one with the chest mounted GoPro and we spoke briefly about USD. I may have gotten footage of you fighting/landing that fish.

I should be able to edit the video in a few days, but man what a trip! Despite almost two decades of sport boat trips, it was my first aboard the NLA and it has absolutely jumped to the top of my list as at least a top 3 boat for me, if not top 2.

It was a pleasure fishing with you. Happy to see you were one of the lucky ones aboard.

Congrats on a beautiful fish! Great informative writing !! Five years ago when the cows moved in. I have a boat capable of getting to them. But got spooled several times. Or could not get bit. I saw all his big fish. I called Marcus. Went mid week and for a good sized tip he Let me learn the tricks. From kite to balloon to sinker rigging and flyers. I think guys could save a lot of time and money learning from the best.

Not sure I want to see myself. It was great fishing with you also. The one thing I should have mentioned was the great people and good fishermen that were on the boat. I have met some the best people fishing on SD boats. Take care.

The fish on the kite , boat rod? Or do you need to bring your own set up ? My first albacore trip in 1994 was on the New Lo Ann. What a sweet boat ride that is. Glad you had a fun trip.

Boat rod. You will want to use their rod. This is very special fishing and they have it set up to assure the highest level of success.
