“He Ate Me Up”

Bill Roecker

The three-day Steve Powell charter aboard Spirit of Adventure returned to H&M Landing July 22 with 18 anglers aboard. They fished with skipper Brian Evans.

Mike Stephenson of Big Bear Lake won first place for his 53.5-pound yellowfin tuna. He said it bit a sardine on a 2/0 ringed Super Mutu hook, and fought him hard for 30 minutes. He fished with 40-pound Big Game line on a Daiwa Grand Wave 30 reel and a Seeker cut-down 800 H rod.

"He ate me up," said Mike. "I've caught bigger fish that fought less."

Christian Reynolds of Upland won second place for a 42-pound yellowfin, and Chuck Thompson of Big Bear Lake won third place for a 38-pound bluefin tuna.
