    Turkey hunt fell through and i now have Thu/Fri open. What boat would you take from Long Beach, Newport or Dana Point? Full day or an overnighter boarding Thu.

    Looking for limited loads or a boat that might not be that filled. I'm pretty new so I any recommendations would be appreciated!

    If it’s me I’ll take the Eldorado out of Berth 55 long beach. Or drive south to get in on some pelagics you’re looking for.

    If you want tuna and yellowtail, you’re gonna have to go to San Diego.

    Right now out of Long Beach, I’d probably take a trip on the new thunderbird going to San Nicholas Island. Good rockfishing, with s few yellowtail popping in.

    Thanks all. I guess it's a trade I'll have to consider but a good choice to be made!

    The Yellowtail fishing is WFO in SD. Your choice should be easy.

    If the target is hamachi go to sd, no doubt. 3 hour run south of nados, no biggie. And they are eating yoyo iron, surface iron, fly line, and slip sinker. So that's cool

    A option.

    The vessel (san diego) that departs out of seaforth at 5:30am. Is a good crowded choice. They just put over 200 yellows on the boat and have been averaging around 100 or so per day. This boat and captain has logged more time hunting nados region yellows then most anyone on the face of this planet, out of passion. The person driving knows the bottom contours like the back of their hand. That's why the san diego high lines on yoyo iron yt almost every time out of all the other boats. The driver knows the direction and the directional changes the fish are going or will be making

    If your going on a open party trip. This boat is worth considering

    The boats yoyo iron yellow count in the colder water months is a testament to the boats yellowtail prowness

    The boat also has a following of surface iron slingers and bait fisherman. Surface iron friendly boat

    Have a fun trip wherever you go

    Funny name for a boat.

    Ok, SD is the target - Which boat do you recommend for solid YT?

    The New Seaforth is a 1/2 day boat, they're going to be rock fishing off LJ. During the week the San Diego probably won't be too bad crowd-wise, but I'm a big fan of the Mission Belle. Steve and Karen are awesome, that's the boat I take people on for their first time. The boat often has a pretty light load and it doesn't really pull in people with attitudes. I really like the SD and there are days I kinda just want to hang out in the galley with Doug, but I think you'll have a better time on the Belle.

    No worries. If you decide to fish with them and Brian is decking go up to him when you're driving out and tell him you're new, he'll take care of you. His personality may not exactly come off as bubbly when you first meet him, but he's a good dude, he'll keep his eye out for you.
