The trip started off at the bait receivers where the SWAG was passed out. T-Shirts, Ball caps, visors, sun masks, owner hooks, cup holders from extra-tuff. After the goodies were passed out there was a buy-in raffle. Those prizes consisted of (2) Avet reels, (1) Accurate reel, (4) Graftech rods, (2) Phenix rods (3) 3/4 day trips on the LIBERTY, (4) 3/4 day trips on the SAN DIEGO, (4) $100.00 gift certificates for FISHERMANS LANDING TACKLE. The raffle generated over $2300.00 to which the entire amount will be donated to the "Rollos Kids" fishing program. Many thanks to all of those who participated to help this very worthwhile program.
On the fishing part of the trip it couldn't have worked out any better.For the first few days we were pulling on Yellowfin Tuna from 80#- 140#. Many of the passengers were rewarded with their personal best. Once we had our fill of these beauties we took off in search of Yellowtail. We spent the next couple of days hitting various spots along the Baja coast picking some here and there. You don't realize just how many you have caught until you start adding them up. Matt decided to try an area about 100 miles south of San Diego for our last stop of the trip. The Yellowtail got with the program especially for the guys YO-YOING. They enjoyed a great return for their efforts. About 1 hour before it was time to call it a trip some Bluefin Tuna found us and we managed to pick off 12 of these beauties from 20-55 lbs. Great ending to a great trip.
In closing, I would like to give a much deserved WELL DONE to Matt, the deck crew, and the boys inside making those delicious meals. A great group of passengers to fish with and hope to wet a line with you again...Thank you John Collins
