Bear 7/19 Report Now with PIC

Well, Three of us headed, all Barn brothers, offshore 3am or so with intent that no way were we going to be able to go. Much to our surprise before we knew it we were 25miles off catching chickens under a floating half full crate of cabbage! Pretty funny.
Had enough of that and continued to the forty fingers. Started fishing about 55 off, trolled out another 5 or so. Landed one decent yellow about 35lbs. Lost a real nice dolphin due to my bad gaff shot. IDIOT of the day award to no other than the captain himself! Seen some scarey looking thunder heads at 11:30 so we decided to run home. All in all beats the hell outta work! Water was 76.5. Decent bait was marked also.

I didn't know it at the time this was my buddies first Yellowfin! He is a Barn member so congradulate him if you'd like!

Louis, I think we would have got um better had we stayed. The bait was moving up the column as the day progressed! Not worth a 60 mile snotty ride in a 23' boat even if it is a Regulator :cool: ! As it were the last 20 was NE winds blowing at about 15. We all know that suxs!

I'd love to see the Jupe in the marina! You'd have to name it *******!
