This year and last years biggest for me.
I’d have to say my best fish netted me $2K in cash and 1k In prizes
It went 88 lbs , Marcus wins for the second year in a row
My buddies and I also caught a few nice fish but the first one over 200 ( according to measurements)on the boat fishing the kite (flying fish)the memories will last a lifetime
YT off the Kayak while camping at San Elijo. I had other meals planned for the camp trip, but I was happy to bump them in lieu of eating fresh YT while watching the sunset every night.
Last meal we made from that fish was Baja Hamachi Poke from Yanni @ Fishermans Belly. Here is the link for the recipe...try it. Its INSANE!
Lost a 250# bluefin after 4.5 hours getting it to almost gaff range 3 times. Also on a 5'3" ugly stik jigging rod and an jx raptor with 50lb line. Nearly spooled in first 60 seconds. Turned him with 50yds of line max left after a 450-500 yd run. We chased him (on a sport boat, not a private boat) and tried to keep him close. He ultimately won his freedom when captain went the opposite way of the circling fish and the line hit the boat because I had too short of a rod. Fish surfaced 20 feet from the boat, half out of the water, which is why we were confident of the size. Whole boat watching as it was the only fished hooked all day. They were supposed to be 50lb fish, not 250# fish .
Did get a 72# yft on topwater in porpoise school. That was nice.
I also Lost a 250+ On 100 lb after 1.5 hours 15 ft from the boat..
But it was more the location that was heartbreaking as we were within 2 miles of ribbon rock...
Getting it at that location would have been sick.. we got a 175 in the same area but am still bummed.
This giant trout at Irvine Park on 2lb test and a Sierra slammer jig.
Long rod and plug. La Jolla.
That is one pretty stocker trout.
67lb white seabass in la Jolla, definitely my best catch this year
Team work. Fish pedals and you hold the beers.
A wise man once said, " Fish have no Hands."
From the Red Rooster 16/13 day a couple of weeks ago. 236 pounds. Hurricane Bank. Jackpot.
Best catch ever..
Oh I didn't realize you were on that Kea Kai trip, Lucas is one of my really good friends, we fish together all the time.
Three yft over 250# and one 500#+ blue marlin released.
Yeah but was it a 2018 catch!
43lbs and my 6th halibut in the 40lb class
Caught this one while scouting out some new areas.
