The annual Accurate sponsored 5-day trip on the American Angler started out fishing kelp patties for 20# yellowtail and school size yellowfin tuna. Day 1 finished with everyone catching near limits of both yellowtail and YFT. Day 2 was at Cedros. More 25-30# yellowtail and 5 white sea bass. Day 3 had us north of Cedros fishing in the same area as day 1. With all the passengers having as many yellowtail and YFT as they wanted, we went “trophy hunting” by moving north up to the “43” to try our luck on the large bluefin tuna. It was a Saturday and there were a lot of private boats there with us. We managed to get 6 hook ups and landed 3 of those. This settled the trip jackpot.
