Fish Report for 9-19-2007

Vagabond Sportfishing Fish Report 09-19-07

Mike Lackey

We've had our ups and downs over the last few weeks. The ALBIES are still here and the bite is good. Most days have been good weather, the last week brought an abnormal amount of wind. Big Yellowtail at the Islands has been from good to excellent for fish ranging from 25 lbs and big ones over 40 lbs. We've been to the Lupe once for slow scratch Yellowfin in the 40-60 lb class. For 1 1/4-day we brought 22 whole Tuna aboard. We've been lucky and only had a few rough weather days. The long season looks good with nice Wahoo reports and quality Tuna!

We still have a few spots left on the longer upcoming trips. The San Diego Anglers have 2 very rare spots open on their exclusive, limited load, 16-passenger 10-day trip (#42), please call the office to check into these hot spots.

The upcoming 3-day trip will be fishing offshore for Albies and will need 25- & 40-lb tackle, 2/0 J hooks, and fluorocarbon always helps.

Those of you going on our upcoming 6-day (#39) and our 8-day (#40) bring standard tackle: 25-lb - 80-lb outfits, 1/0, 7/0 hooks, 8- & 12-oz torpedo sinkers, yo-yo jigs (Wahoo jigs, wire leaders, and Wahoo trolling gear for the 8-day), bait rigs for Green Macks size #2 or #4, fluorocarbon leader 25#, 40#, and 50#, and, of course, sunscreen is a must at the Islands.

Good fish'n, Mike and the Vagabond Crew

p.s. We are finalizing our 2008 schedule and still have few trips open for choice charter so please call the office if you are interested in having the boat all to yourself.
