    Well gang, with only 12 again, we rolled at 9pm after picking
    up a nice load of dines, with Capt. Rob, 2nd Vinny, Tad & Matt
    on Deck and Christopf cooking awesome food all trip.

    Many regulars, Richard, Justin, ex-Phillies/Dodger pitcher
    Kevin Gross, Matt, Bob, Derek, Ted, Hito,Ron 1 and Ron2
    and Arizona's Skylar and dad Trevor made it a real fun trip.

    We started at 60mi due south and fished to about 80 at dark.
    If you like 12+ hours of near non-stop butt kicking big grade
    yellowtail and more fishing. THIS WAS IT. Almost every paddy
    loaded with big yellows, and some with dorado and tuna below
    didn't hardly stand a chance getting a bait in the madness. We
    fished mostly 25-30lb but Kevin and I got our biggest yellows,
    his JP 28+ on 20lb. THAT was a real butt kicking, but lot of fun.
    We dropped the flat falls, colt snipers trying to get down to
    the yellowfin but only suffered more yellowtail abuse in the end.
    We had 5 dorado, 1 nice one about 20lbs, and 7 yellowfin tuna
    hit the cedar plug or Hoochies, 2 on bait. LImits for YT for all.
    We chased down a huge school of porpoise late into the dark
    but nary a jigstrike or meter mark of tuna to be had! BEAT! :dunno:

    Soon a tired bunch hit the shower and sat down to a killer
    Christopf Pork Roast Dinner w/veggies and salad, before
    hitting the racks for a good 8hr ride back to the barn in SD.
    THANKS TO ROB AND THE WHOLE CREW=WHAT A BLAST!

    12 hours I honestly dont think I could reel in fish for that long of a time, sure would give it a try though. Thanks for another sweet report and how did the new lure work for ya?

    Actually it was 14hrs, 6am to 8pm, but I went down and cooled off
    for an hour twice with red hot boots and feet!!! :dunno: Then back for more! :rockon:
    The new Titanium shoulder no pain now. The winding arm, another story! LOL

    I dropped the glow white/chartreuse flat fall for yellowfin, hooked a nice Mahi
    and he threw the hook/s 1st jump= go figure. Then we hooked more yellows. LOL
