Great job on the Fish!!! But your report and pix are Amazing!!! Wish I did that stuff. I'm too busy fishing to do pix. And dead fish are not good looking. Lol btw would Love to hear someone dispute it being anything but Yft! Lol
I never get pics either! Since this was probably my last trip for a while I thought it would be nice to have a couple pictures!

Wow, the water is flat in your pics and it was a wash machine on the west side of north island yesterday while I was bottom fishing. Nice haul for sure.
It was snotty for us too. The wind was really blowing. Uphill ride was a little bumpy to say the least!

Thanks for posting the report, Brian! That kelp was definitely double barndoor size.

And, to all the yellowfin weight deniers out there, I was there too and saw it weighed out :)

Got one
Went out with my buddy Carl and his coworker Steve, Sunday morning with a couple scoops of Anchovies. Full speed to the 371. Found some warmer water and a ton of larger paddies holding small yellows. We did find one that was the size of two garage doors and it was holding a few nice Dorado and we landed a couple. Then we found the ponies and worked them for the Yellowfin! So cool to be able to get these fish in December!

Dorado!

Hey but I do appreciate cool ones like yours. I do agree I love living the moment!! I feel that trying to snap a bunch of staged shots. Just ruin the experience. But that's just my opinion. But I Love Corey's videos!!

[QUOsummed it up ishsmith, post: 3990464, member: 99615"]Way to go!! Wish I wasn't burnt out on tuna fishing... Stupid I know, but with this El Nino, I'm actually looking forward to hitting the honey do list that I neglected all summer long!
Aw forget her list
Wait did you catch a dodo too?... Wait a minute.[/QUOTE]
That's all of us. You nailed it perfectly. Haha

When I'm old and can't fish anymore, stuck in an assisted living resort; I'll be watching my El nino 2015 videos, getting hard and chasing the widows around in wheel chairs.
