He said he found good to great yellowtail fishing at Cedros Island, with few small fish, and had a dozen halibut at Cedros and San martin islands. He also did well fishing for albacore.

Ron Brown of Lakeside won first place for a 36.2-pound albacore. It bit on a sardine and a 2/0 Mustad hook. He fished with 30-pound Big Game line, a Saltiga 30 reel and a six-foot Calstar rod.
