1. Details: Yellow Fin Tuna

    Went out of San Diego on the Old Glory and fished Mexican waters. We caught limits of yellow fin tuna and dorado by 11am then headed home. Great day on the water!

      Also, that's only part of the catch. The boat has a refrigerated saltwater tank to store the fish so the pic shows most of the fish. The bigger dorado were still ...more in the tank.

      Yup. It's a sportboat that had a 24 person load. Mexican law limits you to 10 fish total and 2 dorado equals 5 fish. End of the day each angler went home with ...more 5 YFT and 2 dorado. Good eating.
      @tritonbass the old glory is a head boat boat that is probably all the people on the boats catch

  2. Details: California Yellowtail with a Sardine

    22# yellowtail on a sliding sinker rig. Broke 3 more off because of tangles and too much drag.

  3. Details: Spotted Bay Bass with a 1/4oz jig head; 3" Hammer swimbait

    16" model. Put up a good fight. Largest of the day. My buddy caught a few dinky bass and a small halibut but this bass and my white seabass (on another BLERT) ...more were the largest of the day.

  4. Details: White Seabass with a 1/4oz jig head; 3" Hammer Swimbait

    Out float tubing Newport Harbor with a friend (who caught a small halibut and spotted bay bass) when this white seabass hit my Hammer swimbait.I had been catching ...more bass all day so this was a nice change of pace.

  5. Got this New Daiwa Lexa 400 for $180 on eBay. Im going to spool it with 60# braid and a 40# top shot to fish lighter irons on party boats.

      hopefully they still have it @chafita
    2. chafita 0
      @ReelGame For that price I'd get it in a heart beat. I'm waiting on a JX or HXJ Raptor to be at the right price to pick one up. Pricey but TONS of drag for ...more the size.

  7. New tuna jigging combo. Avet JX in camo on a Calstar Grafighter 800H. Gonna take her out Tuesday and hopefully hang some yellowtail on the yo-yo iron.

    1. chafita 0
      All 3 are deck hand style. Just my preference.
    2. chafita 0
      It is a "deck hand" rod. No reel seat so it's held on by the clamp.
    3. j_reyes 0
      is it just me or is there not a reel seat on that rod?
    4. Reel_Smooth 0
      Nice! And good luck bro

  8. Details: California Yellowtail with a Dropper loop sardine

    About 17# yellowtail on the Sum Fun from Dana Point. At least 60 total for about 40ish anglers. Fun day.

  9. Details: Golden Rainbow Trout with a Panther Martin for one and Powerbait used to suspend a nightcrawler.

    2 trout caught while float tubing Laguna Niguel Lake. Others were pulling them in left and right but i managed these and a catfish.

  10. Details: Other Catfish with a Powerbait Trout dough and night crawler.

    Went trout fishing and managed to get this nice catfish. Used powerbait to suspend the nightcrawler. Caught 2 trout as well so not a bad day on the tube.
