    Getting ready to shove off next monday. Anyone else on this trip?

    Curious as to what I should expect. Seems like a lot of possibilities with local bft (maby biting , maby not) yft in range and yellowtail on paddies and coastal.

    They have a couple back to back 4 days starting today...look forward to hearing results

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Learned a lot last time but this is just my second trip

    It seems to be that time of the season that is a transition period. I would expect them to def. get you on the YFT & YT with a possible brief shot at local BFT.
    But a day can bring a world of change out there, a week is a long time!
    The Rooster is my favorite boat, regardless I like your chances fishing with them, have fun!

    I did a July 4 day last year and had an absolute blast. Great group of people, great charter master, even better Yellowtail and Dorado fishing. The Rooster, captain and crew are outstanding.

    Enjoy your time on the Bird. I pretty much only do the 15 day trips. I did do an 8 day this year...boy was I lost. LOL.... Always a fun boat to be on... great crew..... if I were to guess it would be Yellowtail/ bluefin..... but I am no expert on these 4 day trips.....have fun... you will load up with fresh fish....

    I'm on the trip after you. I bet you fish close to home all 4-days. Bluefin, yellowfin offshore and fish San Clemente Island for a day.

    Sure hope the tunas of either fin color cooperate this year. Last trip we only boated around 6 peanut yft. I was lucky to.pick up 2 on my lexa. I'd love to play with some bigger models.

    Bring something to fish the Flatfall in the Dark. Heavy string on a rig that you can comfortably fish cuz they are eating it and people are getting tooled without the right gear. I would be very surprised if you made a super long run and expect to fish that BFT.

    I'm bringing along a VISX 16 on an axis 3xH rod with 100 lb solid. What is the proper way to attach the flat fall? Short topshot 100 lb mono/fg knot?

    The Rooster is on a 4-day trip now and I don't see any posts on their facebook or web site on how the fishing is. Looks like the fishing last year. Yellowtail and lockjaw bluefin close to home and small yellowfin and bigger yellowtail way south.

    On our 5-day trip last year we traveled 35 hours before we started fishing.

    Make sure the flat fall is rigged up on a heavy leader, like 130-200lb. Mine are all crimped to the jig and then crimped to a swivel. I straight tie the braid to the swivel, but others might suggest a mono leader.

    What size flat falls? Color? Assist hooks or something different?

    The topic has been beaten to death, but the 200g-250g in glow are the most popular. I prefer to ring a large forged 8/0 hook to the back of the lure and perhaps a heavy assist hook like the owner beast hook or two up top, but there are many way to skin that cat.

    At what angle do I hold the rod? How deep should I fish It? Should I drop in on the starboard or port side? What drag setting is best? Deck boots or flip flops?

    Wow....it looks like the Red Rooster is almost to cedros island. That's twice as far as we went on my last July 4 day. That's a long way to go for a short trip aint it?
