The Searcher team is calling it quits for the season after a slow fishing day

"Our final day of the 2012 fishing season came and went with little success," wrote owner-skipper Art Taylor. "We get another 'E' for effort today as we looked for larger yellowfin all day today in the Cabo area. We found four different areas of dolphin that had tuna with them and three of the schools had nice spots of yellowfin in the 12 to 25 pound range. If we needed them, we could have landed several. They were biting! We released several and left them to look for something bigger.

"We located a school of 'blackies' that had a good school of heavy fish. Unfortunately they didn't react at all. No boils or bites. It was the exactly what we were hoping for today but with different results. We gave it our all for the past five days trying for bigger tuna and as they say timing is everything and ours was bad. We are very lucky to have the group of people we do. They all understand the situation and they have also given it their all at the rail the past five days as well. All in all we had a good trip with great weather and everyone will be taking home plenty of tuna and dorado.

"Team Searcher would like to thank all of our great customers for a really good season. We really had some great fishing. Looking forward to next year."

Searcher will arrive on Tuesday, November 20, according to Fisherman's Landing office.
