Late report so I'll keep this one short & to the point.

Launched out of SD bay at 5am on Friday with my buddies Austin (plattas son) & Cameron on board. Got a little bit of a late start due to the line at the bait dock. Headed down south to our zone, and pulled up on some numbers we had fished last week. Found them on sonar right away. Got the chum line going and it was steady fishing from then on out. Drifted all day with the engine off on this school of Yellowfin. Called in a couple of our buddies in the area and before you knew it everyone was hanging fish -- Wide open drift party! We made our buddy Cameron eat his first tuna heart, which is always entertaining to say the least. Had a hook pull on one fish as it was swimming away and still stuck it with the gaff. Great day on the water with flat calm conditions & no shortage of laughs.

This particular school would not eat the artificial baits...all our fish were caught on #1 hooks, 15# or 20# line, and a fired up sardine. Keep the chum line going but don't over do it. Ended the day with limits of yellowfin and a few skippies for lobster bait. Tight lines!

Check out the highlight video from our trip:

Nice work getting limits on Friday, man. My buddy and I were out on Friday in the same area on two different boats. Marked fish all day, but VERY few biters. You found the hungry school, I think!! Way to go!!

Thanks for calling us in on that bite !! You guys are a stand-up crew for sure !! We gotta a couple at another spot, but it was my son's first trip offshore and he was begging to go with the boys. Your call-in saved the day ! How sick was that gaff shot !! :appl:
