Default Rpt-Weds 8-18 Brute Albies & Toad Tails

3 Albacore to 40 lbs. & six Yellowtail to 27 lbs.


Fishing Weds. 8-18-04 with Gabe Delbuono on his 22 GB Cat "Real Time", with son Ricky & friend Jim. We launched out of SI at midnight, heading south 85 miles to 31 20 & 117 50. Curtis on the boat Hanna and Brandon hailed us upon arrival at 5:30am. We began trolling west, and quickly found a kelp paddy that accounted for all our fish, but one albacore caught trolling in the afternoon. These Yellowtail were all brutes, biggest for me this year, I landed three fish over 25 lbs. and one pig Albie. We spent the rest of the morning looking at boiling and puddling albies, which refused to take a bait or jig, very frustrating. Ran east when a call from Curtis said they had found a school of yellowfin tuna some 10 miles away. We only caught one albacore on the troll and that was it, still 74 miles from the point at 2 pm. and low on fuel, kicked it for the barn. Somewhere near 230 miles for the day.

Here is Ricky, Gabe and Jim with some huge Yellowtail.



Here I am with two of my three brute tails.

Not a stellar day, but quality over quantity. Thanks again Gabe for the invite,. Hope we can do it again soon.

Hook up! Cory

Cory, those are some real quality tails off a paddy. How did you keep them out of the salad? Were you using your 40#? I have had a **** of time over the years keeping the brute tails from breaking me off when I hook them within a run of the paddy.

Hey Corey,

I have read and enjoyed your posts for ever! I am just curious though...you fish more than anyone I know (retired?). What is the secret to getting on all these steller PB trips? I have a 21' Reef Runner...I am selling it in hopes of a bigger boat. BUT, when I see guys without boats (I am assuming you don't have one?) fishing way more than I get to, it makes me wonder if I should just crew for others and not buy another boat...maintenance costs x( .

I know, kinda a weird post, and in NO way a slam (maybe jealous), just makes me wonder if I should buy another boat.

Zimm (In WI for work...no wonder I never fish the Pacific!)

Nice report and pics Cory, glad to see that you got some quality size fish. Eventhough you didn't go home with a big quantity of fish, you still went home with a lot of meat. I almost fish as much as you do ;-) HOOK-UP!

Thanks for the report. Looks like you guys moved a little west from prior reports. Did it sound like other areas were more productive?

At first I threw 40, always start with the heavy stuff, especially with huge tails and albies around, however, no bites, dropped to 25 and instant bendo! Gotta tell ya, those big brutes put me to task especially the pig albie, coulda caught more fish, had I not been in so many fights with the big'ns, can't pull hard on 25. All the tails went to the kelp, they just didn't get tangled, got lucky. Thanks for the feedback. Hook Up! Cory
