Just got back from a 2 day trip on the Poseidon out of H&M landing. My Pro Challenger 501 with all the stainless steel goodies
inside as well as Alan's Jm500x gear set and drags and 25# Seagaur floro served into 40# Jerry Brown hollow core braid was
all I needed to subdue 5 Bluefin tuna from 35-50lb's. Sorry I didn't hold any up for the pic ut my arms were too tired. Did i
mention that I lost 6 due to pulled hooks, being sawed off or just farmed? We totalled 100 bluefin and 25 yellowfin 140 miles south of Point Loma. All the fish were caught on the first day!!!
Thanks Alan for making these products available to us!!!

Nice trip, that's a good tally for the 1st day! Those look like a few big skipjack too!

I know about the arm weariness, those 50 pounders don't come in easy.  Nice work.  Dominick

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

Wow, great trip!

How was social distancing handled?  Curious as my buddies are lining up a 7 day trip in October but I'm on the fence...

congrats on a successful trip Petah, nice grade of fish. mmmmmmmmmmmm bluefin!

so jzumi,  i went on a trip out of sd last week (different boat). if the distancing thing is a factor in your decision, know that maintaining 6' distance consistently is impossible. the passenger loads are lighter, which helps and is nice, but there is too much uncoordinated activity on the deck of a sportboat to maintain distancing. furthermore, not everyone wore a mask at all times, despite it being clearly mandated right from the start. that said, the fishing has been from good to great, and the weather nice. i would go myself (did) my friend, who initiated the idea of going, changed his mind, and did not go.
