    Hopped on the pursuit this morning with hopes of yellows that showed up in the past few days. To make this short im a bass guy with very limited saltwater experience but ive tried to go as often as possible. I knew the day would be good when I looked in the bait tank and saw perfect 5-7 inch sardines!!! We made a beeline for the west end and anchored up in the same spot for literally the whole trip. The day started off with quite a few tangles and people getting pretty frisky trying to get to the stern. It was a good pick of smaller schoolie yellows all day with a few wide open flurries and some nice calicos mixed in. I did best with 30 lb straight mono with a 1/8th slider and a 1/0 j hook on a 10 ft sabre b710 i just recently bought off a fellow bloody decker (great rod btw!!!) Ended up with 7 yellows and 4 nice calicos including a 4-5 pounder. I had an absolutely great time and i cant say enough good things about the crew. they kept a group of rent rodders and coffee grinders to a minimum amount of tangles and made fishing with 50 others an absolute joy. Get out there while the bite is still on!!!!


    oh and the calicos were released...
