2022 July 26-31 American Angler Accurate 5-day Trip

Brian Kiyohara captained the Accurate 5-day trip on the American Angler along with crew (Bradly, Kirk, Patrick, Barry, Javier and Chase).  We started fishing the Coronado Island area the day we departed, fished kelps for yellowtail the 2nd day and fished for BFT on the 3rd, 4th and 5th day (5 days of fishing on a 5-day trip is rather rare).  The 200# class BFT were night time knife jig fish with a lot of 100# BFT caught on...

2021 November Accurate 12-day Trip on the Red Rooster 3

Here is the trip report for the November 11-23, 2021 Accurate sponsored 12-day trip on the Red Rooster.  In the past, this trip was run by Jack Nilsen, but with his passing (December 2020), Accurate Pro-Staff Leo Reihsen and myself (Gary Teraoka) ran the trip for Jack.  I am sure that Jack and his side kick Del Marsh were looking over us from above so I hope we did a good job.  We had a very good trip and...

Accurate 5-Day on the American Angler (July 27-Aug 1, 2021)

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...

We had a very successful annual 5-day Accurate sponsored trip on the American Angler.  Thanks to Capt.

Accurate 18-Day Royal Polaris Trip, Feb 8 – 26, 2020

We departed on the annual Accurate sponsored 18-day trip on the Royal Polaris on February 8, 2020.   With a fantastic load of sardines, Capt.

Rick Jensen Charter, Liberty, Nov 3-5, 2019

I was very fortunate to meet a great group of guys (assembled by Rick Jensen of SportfishingFinancial) for a 2-day charter trip on the Liberty out of Fisherman's Landing.  Taro Takeuchi is the owner/operator and he went the extra mile to get us bluefin and yellowfin tuna as evidenced by the fact that we did not return at the scheduled 5 pm but got back around 10 pm so we could land over 60 tuna on day 2.  We...

2019 Sep 20-26 Calstar 6-Day Red Rooster III Trip

We primarily fished Guadalupe Island on this 6-day trip.  It was a very good trip with 4 days of fishing at the island for 40# to 100# yellowfin tuna.  There were some loses to the great white sharks but overall we were able to get a majority of the hooked tuna onto the boat.  This was a very friendly group of fishermen and we all learned the value of selecting a lively bait and being able to cast this...

Accurate 5-day American Angler Trip; July 21-26 2019

We got off to a early start on the Accurate 5-day  trip with Ray Lopez at the helm.  We took a little bit of a boat ride to fish yellowtail first.  Then it was even further to fish the yellowfin.  We knew we were in the right spot since there were at least 6 large seiners in the area and one of them was trying to wrap our yellowfin along with the American Angler.  The last 2 days was...
