Default 9/28 - Tuna, Dorado and Yellows on the 181

Launched out of Dana Point Saturday morning at 5:30am and picked up a scoop of dines and made our way offshore with a crew made up of two newbies, Dave and Mike, and my regular crew mate, Bryan. Made the long run to the 181 via the 209 and paddies were non existent for the most part. Finally we see some birds working big time and we make our way over. We were stoked to see the birds diving on crashing tuna! These tuna were moving fast and every time we maneuvered to get in front they would veer off in another direction. So frustrating! Finally we were able to put ourselves above the school and in go our baits. I'm instantly picked up and seconds later I'm on!!!! I immediately hand the rod off to Mike and he is thrilled to be fighting his first ever tuna. After much coaching, Mike lands the first tuna of the season on the Stealth Stix. **** yeah, high fives to all!!!!

We chased the school for another 45 minutes or so, but just couldn't get another one. In the meantime, we spot a few boats that were chasing the school with us, fishing a good size paddy. We joined the fray and Bryan hooks and hands off a nice dorado to Mike. Bryan handled the gaff duties once again and Mike lands his first ever dorado. Two firsts in one day....Mike was stoked!! We fished this paddy for a few yellows before deciding to call it a day. We were back at the dock by 1pm....in time to make my son's football game.


Great day on the water with good friends! Looking forward to the next trip!!

PS: I tried to add photos, but I kept running into trouble. I was able to post on the other sites...not sure why I had trouble here...sorry!
