    We got called in by Kevin (the mayor) in Fishin' Lures that there were some YTs poppin' on a patty and the rest was history!

    Four boats hooked 12+ Yellowtail and killed 8, and plugged holds of big grade Albacore. Biggest tuna was 37lbs 10oz. Yt's were 10-20lbs. My boat (Ultra) caught one about 17lbs and Captain Sean Orr driving Reel Tight caught two YT's 10-12lbs.

    And a few days were lucked into an Opah (on the blood moon no less). I've been waiting for this one for a very long time!!! 36lbs and a new Washington state record. The angler was Jim Watson from Couer D Alene, ID.

    What a season!!!

    It was a Great day Mark for sure. Our Yellow Tails were in that same weight range. Great Job on the Opah! These were the first Yellow Tail on the Fishin' Luhrs
