|Don't look now, but there is pretty incredible signal on big yellowfin over a spread out area.
And that's not including way out west at the Hurricane, where Andy Cates put the Red Rooster III on 30 over the 200-pound mark, including a day for 89 fish. A day for almost 100 big yellowfin is a ripper in anyone's book, just epic.
Here's the stern shot from Roecker:
Still, the big news is that of the American Angler getting on the first Lower Banks cows of the year. What made it even cooler was that it wasn't the boat's owners, Samuri (Brian Kiyohara) or Bolsa (Sam Patella) who got on the first batch, it was Ray Lopez. There's nothing like when the up and comers get the first hits.
And then there's the fish in Cabo that have been bashed into anyone paying attentions face leading up to tourney time. The Gordo Banks have been the place.
But it doesn't stop there. The Puerto Vallarta scene has been good at times on the inside at the rock and bank for the yachts and charter boats like the Marla fleet. But what's really ripping is the Tres Marias' Buffer Zone, where the Maximus has been filling its niche on a beautiful grade of YFT.
Yes, it's cow season. And no, I am not going.... hopefully you are, whether it's long range out of San Diego, short range out of P.V. or anywhere in between from Mag Bay to the Gordo.
