Mike Keating brought his Spirit of Adventure home to H&M Landing October 15 after the eight-day Jim Hart/ Grady-White charter with 20 anglers including Hart. His anglers had a dandy catch of mixed fish. "We got our biggest tuna up on this end," he said to Roecker. "It sure seems odd to be catching the smaller ones down there and the bigger ones up here. And I hear they're catching albacore like crazy up north."

Justin Guzman of Sunnyvale had the big yellowfin, a 61.7-pounder. He bagged it after a 15-minute scrap, with a mackerel on a 4/0 Hayabusa circle hook tied to 40-pound Big Game line on a Daiwa Sealine 50 reel and a Calstar 800 M rod.

Frank Oclassen of San Jose had second place for another huge dorado, a 51.2-pounder. Joe Zambataro of San Jose took third place for a 50.1-pound yellowfin tuna.
