Brian Kiyohara arrived next with his American Angler, docking at Pt. Loma Sportfishing with a fine mixed catch. "It's a bountiful ocean out there right now," he said.

Glenn Bummer of La Crescenta won first place for a 48-pound yellowfin he said he got with a sardine on a 2/0 Mustad ringed circle hook, 30-pound Seaguar Premier fluorocarbon, 80-pound Line One spectra, a Trinidad 12 reel and a Seeker 870 rod. He also got the trip's best albacore, a fish in the 30's, on a Mean Joe Green Zucker's jig. Skipper Kiyohara posed with that one.

Raj Nal of West Covina won second place for a 47-pound tuna, and Rick McPherson of Santee won third place for his 46.8-pound yellowfin tuna.
