Just returned this morning from one of the best trips I've been on. We left Thursday with 25 guys and headed towards lake Cortez. We arrived Friday morning south of the bank looking for some yellowfin that were caught the day before. That didn't work out so we headed up towards the bank. We had it to ourselves all day never saw another boat.

Around 11 there were huge spots of breezers up and we stopped on a couple until one decided to bite. We drifted from 12 until dark with fish biting the whole time. It was a mix of bluefin and yellowfin all great size. When the smoke cleared we had 101 fish for the first day. I ended up hooking up 14 fish landing 2 bluefin 5 yellowfin and handing off 7 other bites to other anglers. I got bit on 30 to 50lb line using size 4 circle hooks.

Day 2 started off in the same area except there were 18 sportboats around. It didn't take long for us to get on a spot of fish and stayed on this drift until we had to head in. Our bait was weaker so it was tougher to get bit but we ended day 2 with 40ish bluefin and I went 2 for 2 putting my total at 4 bluefin and 5 yellowfin for the trip.
The crew worked very hard both days and the captain even jumped in to get a line untangled from the stern. Awsome food as well i would highly recommend this boat. Get on this bite before they are gone!

Good fishing with you Cody. Yes it was an awesome trip with super weather. Nice fish you got on 30#. Close to an hour huh? Can't beat that kind of fishing this close to home. 30# to 75# YFT and BFT for the most part.

Say!

I like YF and BF!
I do! I like them, Cody-I-am!
And I would catch them in a boat!
And I would catch them with a goat...
And I will catch them in the rain.
And in the dark. And on a train.
And in a car. And in a tree.
They are so goodm so goodm you see!

So I will catch them in a box.
And I will catch them with a fox.
And I will catch them in a house.
And I will catch them with a mouse.
And I will catch them here and there.
Say! I will catch them anywhere!

I do so like
YF and BF!
Thank you!
Thank you,
Cody-I-am
