Mike Livingston’s 405lb Yellowfin Tuna
Captain Mike Lackey & Mike Livingston
World Record Sportfishing in San Diego
Guest Report/CharterMaster Dwayne Patenaude: This year’s SD Angler 10-Day saw epic wahoo. We found 2 paddies on the way down that gave us plenty of shots at the wahoo, but fishing for those escape artists right off the bat left much to be desired for the fish count. I am guessing we had about a dozen fished boated out of about 30 hook ups in rolly seas. It was an exciting way to start the trip! We did much better at the rocks the next two days as we had the kinks all worked out by then. The only thing at the rocks was wahoo (darn the bad luck), but there were LOTS of them to be had. We left after 2 days, very satisfied with the wahoo fishing. We slid down to the ridge and found the schoolie tuna and fished until we were satisfied with that species (all you want). We slid back up the ridge looking for bigger models, only to find a few more. Yellows were absent on the ridge due to the very warm water. We slid into Cedros Island on the lee side and proceeded to have EPIC surface yellowtail fishing. (Bait, Surface iron, waxwings, poppers.) It was a fish EVERY cast until the sun went down. Most people just gave up after awhile and enjoyed watching as the rest of us practiced catch and release on the yellows. We took off for Sacramento Reef and was there by sun up and Mike pulled up on some excellent Calico spots and we proceeded to catch and release Calicos, yellows and white seabass until it was time to go home. Epic trip with Mike again with our limited load of 14 !!
2 SPOTS open on Trip 33 (8-Day) leaving Nov. 16!!
