On September 29, skipper Cates wrote, "So far our plan is working out. We made a run out to the Southwest to try for Jack Pot fish and it worked out nice. We also had action on the school size fish, 15 to 22-pounders. The other 20 fish were 50 to 80 pounds, totalling 70 bluefin and 1 Yellowfin and 1 Dorado. A nice start of the trip. Tomorrow we will be working down the beach trying to find the nice sized yellowfin and dorado."
