Hi guys. Short and quick report. I fished the San Diego with my boy Julio yesterday. I was initially suppose to fish the liberty but they cancelled due to lack of reservations. No biggie.
I won’t say where these fish are for respect of the San Diego, but these fish are close. In cell range. I hooked a 112lb bluefin on 30lb and got him. After almost an hour of pulling hard and fighting the seals, I got him. My best fish on 30lb.
Hooked another on the flatfall but pulled the hook. I fished what I was confident in. This can be a skiff game. We spotted puddlers and breezers.
Fish were blowing up on the chums.
Some fish taken on the faltfall. Flylined baits.
9 bluefin total.

Nice! Was wondering we'd get a report on your trip!

No fish on the torpedo sinker rig? The San Diego seemed to say that a 5-6 oz. sinker was working a good bit for some of the fish on your trip.

curious when a guy fights a fish for 4-plus hours on a party boat - what the other people do with the biters long gone...

You would hope they keep chumming and keep the fish with the boat.
