GOT EVERYONE LOADED ON THE BOAT, MADE THE DECISISION TO TRY TO GO DOWN THE COAST TO TRY SOME PADDY HOPPING FOR SOME YELLOWS AS WE WERE NOT TO SURE ABOUT THE ALBIES, IF WE GOT SOME WORD ON THE ALBIES WE WOULD SHOOT UP THE COAST.

WE GOT THE WORD ALBIES HAD BEEN SPOTTED SO WE HEADED OUT TO TRY TO FIND THEM.
WE GOT INTO THEM BOUT 4:00 OR SO, FIRST A FEW ON THE TROLL, THEN A FEW ON THE METER, WE ACTUALLY DID PRETTY GOOD LANDING BOUT 42 IN ONLY A FEW HOURS, WE HAS A FEW NEWBIES SO A FEW WERE LOST.
WE NOTICED A FEW BOATS STARTING TO SHOW UP AT DUSK, WE SETTLE DOWN FOR THE NIGHT RIGHT WHERE WE WERE
WE WOKE UP AROUND 5:00 AM. LOOKED OUTSIDE AND SAW WE WERE SUROUNDED BY 49 SPORTBOATS. EVEN THE LONG RANGE BOYS WERE THERE.
WE FIGURED THIS WAS GOING TO BE A TOUGH DAY, AND IT WAS, LANDED ONLY A FEW ALBIES ON BAIT FISH THE REST ON THE TROLL.

BOAT IS LOOKING GOOD..
WILL POST A FEW PICS.
SORRY GUY'S CAN'T REMEMBER HOW TO POST PICS.
Thanks for the report. The yellowfin is a good sign of late August fishing, especially at the Lupe.
Just returned from Joe's (Constitution) Sun-Tue 2 day trip. While not as productive as yours Gabe, it was still much fun.
He has done a lot of work on the boat and Charllote fed us very well.
On a side note were your dines as bad as ours? They seemed to almost all have been psoriasis victims, seems like the recievers had mentioned some sort of spill nearby.
