Guadalupe Island hasn't been in the news much recently, but the big island produce d some big tuna for Mike Lackey's 24 fishermen on a five-day trip. "The island was slow," said Mike, "but fishing was really good on schoolie yellowfin and bluefin offshore on the days we were coming and going."

David Young of Ventura won first place for a 95-pound yellowfin he bagged with a sardine on a 4/0 Owner Mutu hook and 40-pound Blackwater fluorocarbon. He used 40-pound Ande line on a Penn 4/0 reel and a Calstar 6465 H rod.

Jerry Kusumoto of Lakewood scored on a 93-pounder that won second place. Matt Kodama of Alta Dena won third place for a 91-pound Guadalupe Island yellowfin tuna.
