Got an invite to fish aboard David’s 31ft Cabo Express “Carpe Diem”.

Went long into Mexico waters from Dana Point and hit an early morning kelp paddy for a dozen Yellowtail around the 390 Bank.

David with one of his Yellowtail.

Catch of Yellows.

Trolled for almost five hours until we got one jigged strike on an Albacore south east of the 213. While David was pulling in the troll fish, I tossed out a nice blonde Sardine and got hammered by a chunky nice 30lb JP Albacore…sweeeet!!

Unfortunately, we didn’t troll up anymore Tuna, but at least we got two.

I had a fun time fishing on the “Carpe Diem” and thanks again for the invite David.
