We had a very successful Accurate sponsored 5-day trip on the American Angler. This turned out to be a tuna, shark and whale watch trip (no extra charge for the whale watch). We caught lots of yellowfin tuna, some great whites caught some of our yellowfin tunas and on the way home we were on a whale watching trip. Check out some of the photos. Captain Ray Lopez took us to Guadalupe Island for some very nice grade yellowfin tuna (30# to 90#) and yellowtail (up to 35#). We finished up the trip by hopping from paddy to paddy looking for yellowtail and dorado. Accurate supplied 20 loaner reels and Calstar provided 20 loaner rods. The new Valiant line of reels proved to be very formidable for this grade fish.
I want to thank Accurate fishing products, Calstar, Izorline, Island Tackle, Salas Lures and Sportsman’s Seafood fish processing for support this trip. I also want to thank Ray, Justin, Rocco, Austin, Taylor, Nick and Josh for making this a great trip. Thank you to Lori for flawless arrangements and organization from the AA office and a special thanks to all the passengers that made this a very enjoyable fishing vacation. We all made new friends and new fishing buddies. Hope to see everyone again next year when we do this again. In the mean time, I have posted photos of all of my new friends having fun fishing. Hope you enjoy the photos. If you want to join in the fun next year, give Lori a call at the American Angler Sportfishing office.
