Left Point Loma Sportfishing at 5am with my wife, son and daughter (both slept all day! Teenagers...) and friends Chris and Ryan with a focus on skipping the yummy all day on our 3/4 day trip. Go big or go home was the call. We went big! Not as big as their 226# a couple days ago but still a nice fish at 134# bled out according to Five Star's scale. We went 1 for 2 on the kite.

Beautiful day on the water, great crew, fun fishing and fresh fish! Capt. Jeff has a new pet name around the docks these days...."Big Tuna Kahuna"!! LOL

Looking forward to our 1.5 day coming up..

Sauerfish has a "will run" open charter with 4 spots still available for tomorrow. Some of you should jump on that trip! Could end up a very light load.

Good job skipping. Did your younger crew wake up to pull a little?

Gotta love teens.... mine slept all the way from L A to cabo. Only with the occasional "blessing of their presence" , with " this is cool" .. when do we eat?

Excellent-- It proves that Thursday's cow wasn't just luck. Capt. Eric may have to break down and buy a couple of Bluefin flags to carry on the boat.

Sorry to be off topic but is it true that Eric will be running the Eclipse? Never had the pleasure of fishing with him but I have a hunch he will restore the reputation of that operation.

Edit - Checked Facebook (rarely go there!) and see is already on it - best of luck

Yes, Eric and I bought the Eclipse and he will be running it with Capt. Karl Mondt as our second and relief captain. First charter departs this week!!

Nice kite work! Gotta love fishing with teens. I don't even ask my 14yo son if he wants to go "Fishing" anymore. I usually say "Hey, you wanna go sleeping tomorrow?"

So how should the yummy's be skipped? I had a long time captain set it up so that the Yummy's were mostly on top of the water, but not often airborne. Basically looked like the end of a rock skipping. However, I read that it was better to have the yummy hitting the water every second or so, otherwise airborne (more like the beginning of skipping a rock). Which is the best method or is there a best method?
