Spirit of Adventure arrived October 5 at H&M Landing, packing a nice load of Alijos Rocks tuna, yellowtail and wahoo. Ten of the yellowfin made the 100-pound mark, likely the best trip so far this season, with four jackpot spots on the Bruce Davis charter.

Roy Jongbloets of Glendal, AZ won first place for a 117-pound tuna.

"He was cooperative," said Roy. "He bit during lunchtime when I was alone at the rail. He fought for an hour and a half."

Roy baited a sardine on a 4/0 ringed Super Mutu hook, tied to 50-pound Blackwater fluorocarbon leader and 65-pound Power Pro Spectra. He fished with an Avet HX reel and a Calstar 700 H rod.

Gary Galbraith of Cooper Landing, AK won second place for a 113-pounder. Bob Wolfson of Dana Pt. got third for a 108-pound tuna, and Russ Weber of Moorpark took fourth place for a 107-pound Alijos Rocks yellowfin tuna.
