Pulled the trigger, went on the New Lo-An on 7/3 @ 8:00PM...

WONDERFUL TRIP!!!! 32 Anglers.... 7 Bluefin, 100+ Yellowfin, 100+ Yellowtail for a 1.5 day trip... thats insane.

Only downside was the number of anglers, 32 was just too many. Only like half the people followed their lines causing me not being able to follow mine. Weather was great and the overall attitude was just great. I have to say one thing, Captain Markus and crew were amazing. Full of energy all day long and they really wanted people to get fish. Even the captain came down and helped people hook bait and get out there.

The only thing I am bummed about is that I was able to get 4 Yellowtail and 4 Yellowfin but when I got to the dock one of my Yellowtails disappeared.... and it was a big one that I hooked too. But the Yellowfins were what I really came after. Well... I could have really enjoyed that Yellowtail lol.

Most of the yellowtail was caught in the morning with anchovies as bait... the rest were caught on a mixture of bait and lures. The Bonine made me really sleepy throughout the day so I missed out on the fish display at the end of the day but I was able to get some guys to send me photos so I will post them later!

Edit:

I wanted to add that I used a #2 hook on the chovies and was able to get two YFT on that. The rest of mine were caught on the troll and the Yellowtails were caught using a Salas 6x JR Mint Green/White

Congrats on a successful trip. With that many fish being brought in to tag and bag, I can see an honest mistake or two taking place.

Yeah. I'm not angry just bummed. And in no way putting the blame on the crew. I just grilled up some yellowtail and made some fish tacos! Gah so good.

The fish gods were good to me today. I have to go again this season for sure.

I wanted to buy a New Lo-An t shirt. But when I went back to the dock the boat was gone. Probably went to refuel... How many gallons does that boat hold?

I'd say you pretty much triumphed in the face of the adversity of dealing with 31 other anglers. I don't like having that many people on a boat with me either. There will be plenty of opportunities this season to catch many more yellowtail.

Thanks for the report, what did you catch the yellowfin on? I'll be on the 1.5 day leaving Friday the 11th.

I personally caught 2 with Chovies and 2 on the Troll. The yellowtails I caught on a Salas 6x JR MintGreen/White
