Left to Right: Honorable Mention 35.4# Bill Doumar, 1st place 32.8# Harry Yamada, tie for 2nd 29# Roger Kuramoto and Albert Leclair

We had another successful Accurate sponsored, 5-day trip on the American Angler.  We had near limits of 20 – 35# yellowtail and limits on school size yellowfin tuna.  Thank you to Accurate reels for providing loaner reels for all to use; Calstar rods to match up with the loaner reels;  Izorline for spectra/mono/fluorocarbon;  Baja Fish Gear for gift card, flat fall jigs, flex wrap and rod straps, Salas Jigs.  We had fantastic fishing (catching), calm seas and fantastic food for the entire trip.  Lots of old friendships were renewed and many new friendships created.  After the trip is over, it is the memories that linger and make us want to come back and do it again.  The photos show just some of the memories created on this trip.  We are going to do this again next year.  Please contact Lori in the American Angler office if you want be part of the memories next year.

Thank you,

Gary Teraoka
