Accurate 5-Day on the American Angler (July 27-Aug 1, 2021)Gary Teraoka
We were able to load and leave a little early on our annual Accurate 5-day Family fishing adventure. Captain Ray Lopez took us to Guadalupe Island for fantastic yellowfin tuna fishing. It has been several years since we last fished Guadalupe Island but boy was it worth the wait. The primary batch of yft were in the 80# to 100# range. A handful of 100# to 135# yft. Mixed in were some good size yellowtail (30#-40#). I will let the following photos and smiling faces show you what it was like.
One thing unique about this trip was that you only needed one fishing outfit for the entire trip. A 60# outfit. We found the ideal outfit was a 600N Accurate 2-speed Valiant reel (BV2-600N) filled with 500 yds of 65# Izorline Spectra and a 60# fluoro or mono topshot. The rod of choice was any rod close to a Calstar 700H or 800H rod. One of Calstar’s newest rod (7400H) proved to be a passenger favorite. Especially on the yft closer to 100#. The 7400H is basically a 700H on steroids.
I want to thank the following companies for making this a successful trips. Accurate Fishing Products, Calstar Rods, Izorline, Salas Lures, Island Fishing Tackle, Sportsmans Seafood Fish Processing and Lori, Brian, Ray and the entire American Angler Sportfishing team. Hopefully, most of the passengers can make it back to next years trip and we can continue to build the “family style” fishing trip where we support congratulate each others success. Please give Lori a call to sign up for next year.
