Yellowtail Bust Open


Hello everyone; 

First I would like to send a prayer out to everyone that’s lost something or someone in the fires in California.  Now back to fishing.  We had an excellent day of Yellowtail fishing.  Most of the fish were in the 25 to 40 pound range.  Not very many under 25 pounds.  It was a good steady bite until 10:30 hours, then we went looking for tuna (Yellowfin).  DSC08599DSC08609DSC08604

The two individual that won the reels, both names are Hunter, a common name in Alaska.  Once dinner was over, we made a quick tank of bait, and we all look forward to tomorrow.  IMG_5984 (472x640)IMG_5966 (640x516)IMG_5964IMG_5963 (504x640)
