Chartermaster Takes Third
Jan Ishii ran his annual charter aboard Mike Lackey's Vagabond, and won third place in the jackpot when the boat returned July 20 after the four-day trip with 26 anglers. All the fishing was done offshore, said Lackey.
"Our first day was a blank," said Lackey, "but the second day was okay, and so was the third. We found one kelp with tropicals on it in 68-degree water. We saw good sign of albacore, bluefin and yellowfin tuna."
Brian Romine of Rancho Cucamonga won first place for a 34.8-pound albie. He said it came on a sardine, a 2/0 Eagle Claw hook, 25-pound Big Game line and a Seeker six and a half-foot glass rod.
Rick Hutchinson of Lakewood was second for a 32.4-pounder, and chartermaster Jan Ishii found a 32.2-pound albacore for third place.
