The Rob Pennel Group arrived at H&M Landing on the Red Rooster III under skipper Andy Cates' hand, following a six-day trip that produced near-limits of yellowtail and tuna.

Brent Johnson of Ontario won first place for a 51.2-pound yellowfin that sucked in his sardine on a 4/0 Mustad J hook, 40-pound Seaguar Premier fluorocarbon, 40-pound Izorline on a Newell 440 reel and a Calstar 6470 rod.

John Daniel of Fallbrook got a 43.2-pounder, and John Antolin of Placentia won third place for a 42-pound yellowfin tuna. Joe Bayless of Reno won the trolling jacket for a 47-pound tuna he got with a new Halco jig. He posed on the right with the jackpot winners.
