Fish Report for 9-17-2006
Had A Ball
Skipper Gordon Lackey docked brother Mike's Vagabond at Point Loma Sportfishing September 17 after a four-day trip to Guadalupe Island for yellowfin tuna.
"We had a ball at Outer Rock," said Gordon. "It looks like 40-pound line is the key; something you can cast a bait away from the boat with."
A group of anglers from Phoenix made up part of the passenger load. They posed with some of their tuna.
Ron Derr of Phoenix, AZ won first place for a 71.8-pound tuna. He fished a sardine with 40-pound line tied to 100-pound Spectra on a Penn 12 T reel. He didn't know which hook he used or which rod.
Ed Bergnaud of Temecula was second, for a 71.2-pounder. Phill Spiller of Huntington Beach tied with Pery Gordon of Tempe, AZ for third. Both had 70.8-pound tuna.
