John Here got another great trip report for ya.
Just came off the Red Rooster 2013 Annual 4 day CharkBait trip with Captain Andy Cates at the helm and it was awesome.
With 31 passengers and loaded with sardine for bait we head to the BFT (Bluefin Tuna) grounds about 80 miles from Point Loma San Deigo
We looked around the area and hook a few fish 10lb to 20lb but with the weather up the fish down and didn't want to cooperate we made a move.
Andy Cates made the call to head down to an area holding YFT (Yellow Fin Tuna) and kelps paddies holding yellowtail and dorado
and it was a good call. We stop on a kelp and BAM!! wide open yellowtail all the rods went bendo. What a great start.
Andy made the announcement he was heading into the Yellow Fin Tuna area. We put out the trolling rods and right away we had a jig strike, HOOK-UP!!!
After a 45 min. drift catching tuna on Bait, Jigs, surface poppers and just about anything you casted got bit. It was awesome.
We ended the day with about 100+ tuna 15 to 25lbs and a few nice 30+ fish came to gaff.
Well we did that all day for about 300+ tuna and it was time to get headed back we were a long way from home.
Captain Andy being the diehard fisherman he is on the home we made one more stop to capture a couple more BFt
and ended that night with a beautiful Fillet Minion Dinner and a good nights rest before hitting the dock the next morning.
Another successful trip put together by the Red Roosters Captain and Crew We caught veriety YFT, BFT, YT and DoDO.
Shout out to all the folks that came out with us this year.
We had folks out from all over, Chicago, Spokane WA, all over California from Sylmar to La Verne to Canada Flintridge and
you guys from New York Port Washington hope you left with memories of the best tuna fishing you guys had ever seen.
