Well, the effort and optimism was there in the early AM. We headed out, ran for a couple of hours however, the ocean was not giving in. Once we climbed the perfect storm wave, it was time to turn around. Tuna is a challenging catch, but in 10 foot swells and no forgiveness in sight, the group opted to turn back. A day of trolling in these conditions is not much fun. Pacific Ocean 1 – Best Fishing Places – 0. With our hopes dashed for this year, we will look forward to San Diego and another chance at the Tuna. Thanks to all who “tried” to participate. Winning by default with a whopping 4.5 pound Quillback Rockfish on day 1 was Mark Smith.
Look for the 2011 3rd annual tournament trip information soon which will be held in San Diego again.
