Left Alamitos with a scoop of Sardines and some macs, descent crossing, got a quick limit of Rock cod before heading out for tuna. Went about 5 miles off the west end back side and starting looking for foamers and slow trolling on marks, threw poppers on some foamers but no go. Than around 1:00 a foamer the size of a football field came and we hooked 1 on a Mac that broke off, than my brother hooked one on a colt snipper after getting him down to a few wraps left on his he Tranx he bolted the drag and it came unbuttoned than on the same retrieve he hooked another one and we fought it for 50 minutes on the Tranx with 80 Power Pro and a 9.5 foot rod. But we landed it. The lure was the 100g Blue and Pink.

After bleeding and icing down we started heading home looking for foamers. We ended up heading from the west end of Clemente to west end of cat and about Halfway we saw foamers again. I was throwing a tady 9 chrome jig and hooked a monster. Off course on the same outfit Tranx and 9.5 foot rod. Fought it for 1.5 hours and it came off, we had him close many times and he was big, but when he saw boat he would just run again. So we ended up 1 for 4. But we were happy we got the one.

Nice to hear they’re starting to eat the jigs. Bait should be thinning out a bit here over the next month. Just hope they stick around the banks. Rephrase that, they will stick around cause my freezer is getting low!

Thanks for the detailed report. Would love to hook up on a BFT using Tranx and the colt sniper, although the long pole might make for a tough fight. Congratulations, one is better than none :-)
