Two Tusker Tuna From Guadalupe

Bill Roecker

Guadalupe is slowly rounding into shape, thinks Art Taylor, Searcher owner-skipper. He docked his boat at Fisherman's Landing August 24 after a five-day trip with 17 anglers.

"Whitey's getting his share, too," noted Art at the scales.

Georg Hartlmaier of Brianhead, UT won first place for a stout 88.2-pound yellowfin. He bagged that baby with a sardine on a 2/0 Mustad hook and a 40-pound rental outfit.

"Please put in a plug for my shop," he said. "It's Georg's Ski Shop in Brianhead."

Tanner Huffer of San Clemente made his second lineup shot in the past few weeks. He took second place for a 62.4-pound tuna he caught on a Tady AA jig in blue and white, on 30-pound line. The young waterman is on the surf team at San Clemente High.

Damon Mahem of Islamorada won third place for a 34.8-pound yellowtail.
