ITS A WRAP FOLKS .

11-22-2014
- ...... Well, this morning didn't disappoint us again as the large tuna were very cooperative again, things got going early and by 0900 hrs we were done for the trip. No cows for us this morning but what we did catch was the same beautiful grade we caught every early morning here, lots of that 130 to 195 lb. fish. Another 30 fish this a.m. In the fresh RSW hatches and there you have it. With a couple of brimming wells of fish on board we are on our way home with choppy weather, I'm glad to be on the big boat. Everyone is pretty tired, and most are horizontal or watching movies, and very happy with the trips success. We will report back in a day or so, sea ya then , Jeff


Rolling rite along

11-21-2014
- ... Fishing continues to be very good for premium yellowfin tuna down here in the sub tropics. The window for the bigguns is early and late, and 90 to 130 lb. through out the day seem to be around for the taking. The stand out fish today were caught by Alex Romans # 245 lbs. and a 240 lb. caught by Chris Johnson late In the day. The morning hit was again fast and furious , as it just doesn't get any better. Still great weather , we are going for one more hit tomorrow morning and then home. Sea ya then , Jeff


WOW , DAY 3

11-19-2014
- ITS GETTING BETTER. Hey gang, here is what we know so far. Today things got going early on, and kept going till about 1200 hrs and then it virtually evaporated for the rest of the day. Bigguns and more bigguns for us here. I looked at the tally board when the dust settled, and 38 tuna was the number for the am hit. They had 10 fish written down for the cow column , but it was really really busy and I think 8 cows for sure, maybe 10. Everything we caught today was over 100 lbs, and the bulk was 130 to 190 lbs , just incredible fishing down here. I wish I had more pictures, but we were on the ropes for hours, and I did get a few, see them on FB , the 2 stand out cows were caught by Jeff Larson , #255 and bob riddle with a # 250, the weather is as good as the fishing, outstanding. Thanks for checking in, I hope we can keep the ball rolling, Jeff

11-18-2014
- Everything is great here on the independence....... Well, day # 2 here, and we had another banner fishing day here on the Indy. Beautiful grade yellowfin tuna, flat calm weather, and everyone is a happy camper. We had a couple of excellent drifts today that resulted in 75 tuna, 50 of which were 100 to 200 lbs, most being 110 to 170 lb fish. Things look good around here, and we are eager to see if more bigguns are around. Check out FB , there are a few pics from today. Sea ya all later, Jeff

We are changing locations for tomorrow, sea ya then, Jeff


Great day on the Indy

11-09-2014
- Hey everybody we spent the day fishing for Wahoo today under cloudless sunny skies, and 5 kts of wind if that. We had some chances, and put together a day on these beauties. Capt Jimmy's bombs and salas 6x hot pink got a lot of action today. We also dredged up some large Yellowtail in the afternoon to spice things up. Fishing wise and weather wise this is the typical 10 day variety trip, really good fishing for us here on the Indy. We are going to give it another go for tomorrow, wish us luck please, Jeff


Great variety on tap

11-08-2014

Again we obtained our limits of these beautiful 20 to 40 lb. Yellowfin with ease today. Throughout the day Wahoo would make an appearance, as well as Yellowtail and Grouper for the bottom dwellers. As far as the larger model Tuna, we went on a tour yesterday, saw some sign, but no bites except for 15 to 20 lb. fish on porpoise. Very good 10 day variety style fishing going on right now. We are off to another zone for the next few days, so check back and see what's biting, sea ya then , Jeff


GREAT START

11-06-2014
- Greetings from the independence. We got off to a whale of a start today with wahoo, tuna, yellowtail , grouper , dorado .. Biting fish pretty much sums it up for us. The yellowfin stole the show with 18 to 35 lb. fish we got our daily limits on these beauties easily. Throw in a couple hand fulls of big wahoo and a few dozen chunky yellowtail , and there you have it. Everyone had a super great day, yanking and cranking in the hot sun. We are going to keep trying for fish, so tune in tomorrow and see how if goes, sea ya then , Jeff

Weather up, skinnies down.

10-28-2014
- Well , we took our turn at the wahoo hole and things didn't quite work out like we would have wanted. The fish pulled a no show for us, as only a few were landed out of a dozen attempts. It was a windy choppy day, coincidence they didn't bite, I don't know. A few hoo and couple hand fulls of dorado for the effort. We are going to relocate for tomorrow and see if we can get it going. Thanks for checking in, Jeff and the Indy crew

Hello From The Indy

10-23-2014

After that we headed up the line hitting kelps for Dorado as well as getting a late bite on yellowtail, yesterday we had a very nice day on Wahoo and Dorado fishing kelps offshore, most of the Wahoo were in the 35 to 50 pound range and the Dorado in the 12 to 18 pound class. We are going to try for Yellowtail on the last day of fishing. Weather has finally let up today, 15 to 25 knots has been the norm for the past 8 days, not the usual fall bliss we are use to, the final leg home looks good for the ride in. Have a great day, from all of us here on the Indy!!!

We made a few drifts in the morning with fair results, but in the afternoon we hit a large school that went ballistic , biting everything we threw at them. Everyone on board needless to say is fat and happy on the tuna thing. Some one had a go pro under water filming the aquarium like scenario , and I can't wait to see the footage. So on ward and up ward we go, gaining altitude for the next day or so, great weather today as well. Check in, in a day or so and see how we end the trip, sea ya then Jeff

Awsome Fishing

09-05-2014

Most were lost after long battles, but when you get one it's a trophy, 75 to 100 lb. the yellowfin on the other hand were willing to cooperate , and we had a super fun day on quality fish , with daily limits for all. Great weather made it all the more enjoyable. We will be back to the dock at 0530 tomorrow, sea ya then, Jeff

We saw giant schools of big bluefin, giant schools of 25 to 35 lb. yellowfin tuna and we managed to put together a decent day. Getting the bigguns to bite was a tough feat, but we did get a few shots at them. The yellowfin wanted to bite today and we had great action on them in the afternoon, and bluefin in the morning. Picture perfect weather is what we had today. We plan on doing this again tomorrow, sea ya then, Jeff

ANOTHER GREAT MORNING.....

09-01-2014
- ANOTHER GREAT MORNING..... Well Labor Day started off with a bang, as the tanker sea bass showed again for us here on the Indy. We had some chances today again and the guys did well. The bite window was short but sweet, and after that we scratched here and there at yellowtail for most of the day. Picture perfect weather has made the voyage even more enjoyable. With limit style yellowtail fishing, and a couple of rounds on the big croaker we are going to start the long drive up to the tuna grounds for the remainder of the trip. Check in in a a day or so and see how it's going. Sea ya then , Jeff.

We are going to try for some bait tonite, and then maybe some more of this tomorrow, thanks for checking in, Jeff and the Indy crew

FISHING BLUEFIN AGAIN

08-11-2014
- FABULOUS FISHING TODAY...... Hello again from the independence. We had another super fun day fishing in the u s a. today. Things got going shortly after daylite , and the large bluefin put on a great show for us. 60 to 100 lb. fish were the rule, and picture perfect weather made it even more enjoyable. Everyone had multiple chances at these trophy bluefin, and when the final one hit the deck we had tallied up 26 jumbo bluefin for the effort. Mix in a few casualties that normally occur with this caliber fish , but over all everyone did really well. We are having some difficulty sending all the pictures, but we will as soon as we can. At present the Mexican government has lifted the ban on fishing for bluefin tuna in Mexican waters, so this will be hugely beneficial to the San Diego fleet in the next few months. The sword fish spotter planes are still reporting huge volumes of bluefin still around down there, so don't be left out on this great fishery. By the way we have some openings on the coast side fishing 8 day coming up, check it out on the web. Sea ya soon, more reports to come. Jeff

Somewhat sluggish but good

07-16-2014
- Hello everyone, the last two days have been very different for us, we traveled down the coast offshore yesterday and found very little in the way of fish we wanted to keep, we did release some small yellowtail and tuna. Today we found ourselves in a very good yellowtail bite, the fish were all 18 to 25 pounds. jigs were the hot ticket on both the surface and yoyo iron, fly lined bait also did the trick. Our weather continues to be nice, just a bit breezy this afternoon. Thanks for checking in.

- Today we had perfect weather and good offshore fishing, we are headed down to try our hand at one of the long range hot spots. All is good on the Indy, have a great day


Back out to sea

07-13-2014
- Hello everyone today was our normal turn around day which went smooth as silk. We got a great load of Sardine and anchovy at the bait receivers and headed out to points south, that's when the day became anything but normal, at about 4 PM we started to see tuna, the first spot was 50 to 60 lb. fish up puddling on some sort of small bait, we stopped on them for no bite, then another good school for no response then another school and the ocean erupted with 30 to 40 pound bluefin and they bit until dinner time, I great way to start the trip to say the least. The weather has become flat grease so we are going camp out and try this again tomorrow. Wish us luck the Indy Crew; check our Facebook page for pictures during the trip.

Final days.....

06-28-2014
- Hello everyone, we made a few tanks of bait yesterday, and gained some altitude today while looking for tuna. We saw a little bit of sign in one area, and caught 6 yft for the effort. We will be in a better area for our last day tomorrow. Please wish us luck, Jeff


MORE SKINNIES........

06-26-2014
- Hello again sports fans; here is what we know about today. We spent most of the day fishing for beautiful grade Wahoo with some success. 29 bigguns hit the deck, and are resting in the r s w tank along with the half dozen nice grouper we caught today as well. Picture perfect weather to work in today made it all that more fun. We are on the way up rite now, and will be making a bait stop tomorrow before venturing out again to the offshore scene. We are all looking forward to Chef Ed Lacombs savory yellowtail dinner tonight, Yum. Thanks for checking in, Jeff and the Indy crew


EPIC FISHING = GREAT LIVING...

06-25-2014
- Wow, good evening from the independence. Today was one of those days that one runs across every once in a while out here. Things got going early, 0300 yellowtail bonanza began, and we left 'em biting at 1000 hrs. 20 to 30 lb. fish full speed. Throw in a nice w s b and a few grouper and that was the morning. The after noon was equally great as we found a few kelps loaded with BULL Dorado up to 40 lbs. got all fixed up on those, and managed 26 big wahoo up to 60 lbs for the effort. All I can say is everyone on board here is totally spent, and will sleep very well after chef Ed's fabulous rack of lamb dinner he has going on. Everything was the hot ticket today; Salas 6x jr. and Capt Jimmy's Wahoo bombs were the way to go for the skinnies, and 6 xs for the yellas. Great weather was enjoyed by all as well. We are going to make a move tonight in hopes of more of this great action going on out here. Sea ya all later, Jeff


STARTER KIT........

06-24-2014
- Well we got things started today , and managed to have a pretty good time in the process. 18 to 30 lb. yellowtail were the game today. Salas yo yo jigs and the beloved 7 x for the long rod guys were the way to go. A hot mackerel cast out was pretty instant as well. I think pretty much everyone got their daily limit on these today, and we had excellent weather as well. We are going to camp out and give this a try tomorrow in hopes of a repeat day like today. Thanks for checking in on us, Jeff and the Indy crew

Always a huge thanks to everyone who made the trip this year and to Ron Hirao from big fish tackle for everything. We left Point Loma all baited up at 1200 hrs on another 8 day trip with our friend Brian Porter as our host for the trip. Again lots so rods and gear for everyone to enjoy this trip. Check back in a few days, and maybe we will have a report. Sea ya then, Jeff and the Indy crew


ITS A WRAP.......

06-21-2014
- Good evening everyone, we spent the day again searching for bluefin tuna with some success here on the Indy. Lots of water covered today, no doubt about it. We ended the day with a dozen bluefin , 25 to 30 lb.ers and 8 yellowfin tuna 15 to 18 lb. fish, and a couple of yellas. As near perfect weather as one could want for an outing like this. Late in the day we got into an area that was loaded with fish, loaded , but not biting that well. We ended the trip on a high note anyway, and will be back to San Diego at approx 0545 tomorrow. Sea ya then Jeff

Singing the blues....

06-20-2014
- Singing the blues.... Good evening everybody, here is what we know. By covering a lot of water today I can honestly say there is hope for the offshore scene. We had one good chance at big bluefin today, and only landed a few, and let a hand full go. Yellowtail fishing at the island yesterday was good for the amount of effort we put fourth as well. We have tomorrow to hopefully put it together , as we caught only 4 bft and a couple of yft today. Wish us luck, Jeff and the Indy crew

Plugging away......

06-18-2014
- Hello again from the independence. We had another stellar night bite on these beautiful 25 to 35 lb. yellowtail last night and now we are in good shape as far as yellers go. The Wahoo put on a little show for us early this morning as well. We put 13 skinnies down before breakfast was finished also. We are on the move now, and going to check a few spots on the way up the coast, as we are going to be in position to look offshore for our last 2 days of fishing. So far everyone is having a blast, fishing all day and all night. The weather is still on our side, perfect. We will report again when we get something figured out, sea ya then, Jeff


COMBO PLATTER........

06-17-2014
- Hello again from the independence. Here is what we know. We visited our night time yellowtail spot last night and had a fairly successful night catching premium yellowtail. 88 of those big yellas hit the deck before daylite. After daylite it was just a pick on the yellowtail, as they were not playing any more. We had a few more chances at some Wahoo, but could only tag a few. We tried a grouper hole and had a fun time as a dozen big fat grouper up to 50 lbs. kept everyone busy trying for a trophy fish. All in all it was a fun day here on the Indy, and we are going to give it another try for tonight and tomorrow. The weather has been just perfect for us out here as well. Wish us luck, Jeff and the Indy crew

HOO SURPRISED WHO ?

06-16-2014
- Good evening from the independence. We departed on this big fish tackle 8 day on Saturday. We grabbed some bait on the way out and away we go. There were some great give aways including Okuma rods and reels, apparel and tackle for everyone. Our first day was pretty much a travel / fish day as we didn't see much on the offshore scene. Today on the other hand was a decent day as we scratched at good grade yellows and we had a couple of bingos on big wahoo. 75 yellowtail and 17 40 to 60 lb. wahoo for the effort today. First time long ranger Ed Glinecki had the hot hand and landed 3 of these big skin today. Capt Jimmy's wahoo bombs and Catchy 33 jigs, and Calas 6x jr.s were the hot ticket today for those who had them. The Salas 6x yo yo guys did well also. The weather is really good, and we are going to give this another try tomorrow. Everyone is doing really well. Thanks for checking in, Jeff and the Indy crew

06-13-2014
- Good afternoon. Just heard from the boat and they will arrive back at San Diego 0600 Saturday morning. For those of you going on Saturdays' trip make sure you bring your PASSPORTS. See you tomorrow.


Nice Schools

06-09-2014
- We started our trip offshore looking for tuna hoping the beautiful weather we had to work with let us find some tuna, we caught about 45 school size yellowfin tuna for the morning with no sign of bluefin to be found. We continued the search and after running a few hours in very poor water we got on some bluefin in the 60 to 75 pound range, we ended up only landing 3 fish but it was good to see after a long day of grinding it out. Tomorrow we are going to switch it up and try for some yellowtail. Wish us luck, the Indy crew.

Blue icing on the Cake

06-07-2014
- Blue icing on the cake........ Hello everyone, here is what we know. We decided to take a peek at the offshore scene as the weather has not allowed us to venture out yet, and we had some good luck today. We had a 7 hour drift on 60 to 90 lb. bluefin tuna. While the weather was up again today, we did manage 27 of these beauties, and had some losses in the weather as well. This is just what the doctor ordered, as we have plenty of beautiful yellowtail, bass, etc.... In the holds already. Thanks for checking in, and we will be back tomorrow at 0545. Sea ya then, Jeff

Their on the bite

06-07-2014
- They're biting a little bit today


Plugging away......

06-05-2014
- Hello again from the Indy. We have been on the move and fishing all the while for yellowtail , bass, halibut ect..... With moderate success on some days, and tough on others. Typical springtime angling at its best. As always weather comes into play, and this trip has had a lot of wind,, and continues to blow. We would really rather be offshore hunting those bluefin tuna, but it doesn't look very promising at this point. We will see how it all goes down. Thanks for checking in. Everyone is doing just fine, Jeff and the Indy crew


GITTIN ER DONE.....

06-03-2014
- Good evening from the independence. Fabulous day fishing for beautiful grade yellowtail on the Indy. All techniques were working today. The long rod 5x and 7x pluggers had a super fun day along with the 6x yo yo guys and bait fisherman. Things were slow in the am, but around 11 it was game on till 1800 hrs. The weather has been a little bit breezy, but not completely blown out. We are going to gain some altitude tonight, so we are on the move. Thanks for checking in, Jeff and the Indy crew

Almost Home.......

05-08-2014
- although we had pretty good success fishing down below this trip , we didn't have a very good ride home as in we payed the piper for the good fishing we had. What worked this trip is simple, time at the rail, as usual, and being able to switch gears , try different techniques. The guys had good success with capt jimmy wahoo bombs for the wahoo also. If all goes as planned we should be back to the dock at 0715 tomorrow morning. Sea ya all then, Jeff


CINCO DE MAYO, GOING OUT IN ST

05-05-2014
- Hello again from the Independence. With poor fishing yesterday we were hard pressed to make the most out of our morning we had left to finish the trip. We were not disappointed, as the sign of big tuna was just awesome this a.m. We had lots of chances at bigguns and had a few heart breaks, BUT when the dust settled we had put together a beautiful catch, 36 tuna, 3 cows, another 10 were 190 to 199 lbs. and many 150 to 185 lb.ers and the rest were stock grade 80 to 100#. Big fish honors today went to Jim Poore with 225# tuna, Clarence Becker with a 230# fish, and Steve Vetrone with a 205# as well. The sign of big fish was as good as I've seen in a while, too bad we had to leave at 1100 hrs for San Diego. We will try to put some pictures up on our FB page in the next few days. Everyone caught fish this morning, and is now relaxing with the nice ride home. Sea ya later, Jeff


WAHOO INVASION.....

05-03-2014
- Hello from the independence. The early morning hit on yellowfin lacked the numbers we were used to seeing, as there were only a few biters for the early tuna fisherman. 10 tuna was all we could muster up today. The largest tuna today was caught by Sam Raiter and weighed 240 lbs.the wahoo stepped it up today and put on a good show for us and we enjoyed fishing for them most of the day. 40 nice big wahoo for the effort was what we got today. Flat calm weather again made things really enjoyable out here. That pretty much sums it up for us, wish us luck, as we have 2 more days to fish and then we're done. Sea ya later Jeff


Early Bite Again

05-02-2014
- good evening everybody, here is what we know about today. Things got going today around 0300 and around 1000 hrs they got lock jaw. I will say one thing, the fish we did catch and lost were mostly good ones, as we had ample chances this morning. The over all grade was 130 to 255 lbs. lots of that 140 to 190 lb. fish... The stand outs today were Steve Pettibone with a 255 lb. tuna and Rick berg's 215 and John Collins with a 205 lb tuna. The afternoon was saved by some Wahoo that kept us entertained. 17 tuna and a couple of hand full’s of skin for the day. Great weather all around. Wish us luck tomorrow, Jeff


Greener Pastures

05-01-2014
- Well the move outside proved to be worth the time and fuel, as we were greeted with good conditions and good fishing all day long. The early bite was best for 130 to 198 lb. Tuna as after day lite the grade was mostly 80 to 125 lb. fish. When I checked the board we had tallied 50 tuna and 4 or 5 Wahoo for the effort today. Everyone had a really great time today in the warm sun trying for fish and fun. We re going to try for some bait tonight and give this another try tomorrow, I hope I works out, wish us luck, Jeff and the Indy crew


TIME FOR A MOVE.....

04-30-2014
- we gave the early morning spot another try with somewhat different fishing conditions and came up with 10 tuna 80 to 160 lbs. before setting a southwest course and kicking em up to cruising speed. With plenty of fishing time left we are going to try the bank and see if we can get er done out there. Everyone is doing quite well , and he weather is outstanding. Sea ya all later Jeff


IT'S AN EARLY BITE.....

04-29-2014
- Good evening everybody, here is what we know. Again things got going early on today as timing is everything. The cows pulled a no show, but the fish that did show up were just what we needed. Very good action on 90 to 190 lb fish today and they put on a good show until 0800 and then they went away. The rest of the day was a few fish here and there. We tallied 39 tuna and one lone Wahoo for the effort today. The weather is just perfect down here as well. Check out the pictures on F B as we put some up from the days fishing. Wish us luck for tomorrow, Jeff and the Indy crew


Day 2 Wrap Up

04-28-2014
- DAY 2 WRAP UP.... After the morning hit we tried all sorts of areas for another 17 fish that were good grade, a couple of 170 to 180's and a standout 225 lb. caught by Vladimir Kustudic to round out the day. 37 tuna and a couple of Wahoo, 3 cows for the effort. Sea ya all mañana


WELL, ITS A START....

04-27-2014
- hello everyone from the independence. We started off the trip yesterday and saw a little bit of sign in the afternoon that had potential. We landed a couple of 170 - 175's and a few handful’s of 80 to 140 lb. fish topped off by a 235 lb. caught by Tom Phillips right before dark. This morning was a different story as things were in high gear early on in the game.. By 0700 we caught 20 or so tuna most being 80 to 175 lbs. and 2 fish Cathy Needleman’s 225 lb. beauty and Clarence Becker’s 240 lb. were the standouts. We did have a fair shot at these bigguns as we hosed 4 or 5 big fish, but that's fishing. That's all to report so far, we will update later tonight. Sea ya then Jeff


LET'S GO FISHING.....

04-24-2014
- Good evening everyone from the independence. We are out again on another 16 day trip, this one sponsored by Savon Tackle. We departed yesterday with a beautiful load of bait from Everingham bros. bait around 1000 hrs. We have a really great group of fisherman for this trip and we spent the past few days rigging and relaxing as well as some odd jobs here and there. The tackle raffles were a big hit as everyone was a winner for sure. There are a few pictures on FB of some of the activities on board here. We are pointed south for our destination that has yet to be determined, so check out the reports as we begin fishing on Sunday. Please wish us luck, Jeff and the Indy crew, Matt, Tyler, Kevin Oscar, Cole, Michele, and Rolf


Indy Returns

04-08-2014
- The Indy will arrive at approximately 6am on Thursday 4/10...Thanks for checking in...


ADD A LITTLE COLOR......

04-06-2014
- Hello again from the Indy. We broke up the ride home and stopped by the stones to fish for yellows today and were greeted by beautiful grade, biting fish. The 22 to 35 lb. yellowtail put on a great show for us and the guys with the salas 7 x long rods killed em as well as the yo yo 6 x guys. The guys with bait were really busy as well. There were 3 tuna caught, a couple of 15 lb. and a 50 lb. stand out. Things looked good here today, and we easily caught our daily limits for all. Picture perfect weather made the day even better, as everyone had a last yanking and cranking in the warm sunshine. We are headed up he line.. Finito. Sea ya all later, Jeff and the Indy crew


Time for a change......

04-05-2014
- After a couple of slow days of fishing we have decided to make a move to different and hopefully greener pastures. I feel the sign of tuna and Wahoo that had been around just wasn't around any more, so off we go. Don't get me wrong, we had our chances and made good on most of them. With 240 quality tuna, maybe a dozen over 200 lbs. and 123 nice Wahoo aboard we feel lucky to have a great catch all things considered. Some guys had no problem getting their limit of tuna and half limit of Wahoo this trip. That's why it's called fishing. We are going to break up the ride home and stop by the rocks for a day of yellowtail fishing. Sea ya then Jeff and the Indy crew


DIFFERENT DAY......

04-04-2014
- Good evening again from the independence. Today we were dealt with some challenging fishing conditions, as the saying goes, every day is different, and couldn’t be more true out here today. One extreme to another we had 4 bigguns hooked and 2 liberated themselves. The sign of fish at one point today was very good but wouldn’t stick around the boat. 18 tuna and a dozen Wahoo was all we could muster today. One hopes and prays for one more crack at these beauties like we had a few days ago to even things out for today's slower fishing. So with that I will sign off with high hopes for the next few days. Sea ya then, Jeff and the Indy crew


ANOTHER GOOD DAY

04-03-2014
- just checking in here from the independence. Today we awoke to some what better conditions for fishing. We made the best of what was around and put together another good day on these beauties. Three more cows and one maybe made it on the boat this morning. The rest is gorgeous grade fish as well. 32 tuna and 26 Wahoo for the effort today. The weather is as good as one could want down here. There are a few pictures on FB and you might recognize a few of he lucky anglers out here whooping it up on he Indy. We still have a few more days to fish before we gotta head back. Thanks for checking in, Jeff and the Indy crew


Rolling Right Along.

04-02-2014
- Pictures on Facebook.... Good evening from the Indy. Today we saw a totally different set of conditions as the great fishing current from yesterday was going opposite today. We did manage to put together a day with 2 big fish and some 150 to 180 lb. fish early on. Charter master Rick Ozaki caught his second cow a 225 lb. fish this morning the other by Dane Barriult a 199 lb. beauty. 32 tuna and 17 big Wahoo for the effort today. We hope for another great day tomorrow, please wish us luck, Jeff and the Indy crew


WOW. THIS IS GREAT LIVING.

04-01-2014
- No April Foolin' here, Good evening everyone. Again today was really good fishing for 100 to 235lb. tuna and large Wahoo. We ended the day with 63 tuna and 39 Wahoo for the effort. We pretty much had something on our lines from 0400 till dark. The over all grade is really super good, as most everything is at least 100 lbs and with 5 fish over the 200 mark and a few that we're close we are living rite. There were lots of 150 to 190lb. errs to add to the mix as well. With 2 wells full we are headed into our 3 rd well tomorrow with 5 more days of fishing and hope things are going to keep rolling rite along. Check our FB page for some pictures of the trip so far. Wish us luck, Jeff and the Indy crew


The Buffer Zone

03-31-2014
- Good evening everybody here is what we know about today. We made a move to the buffer zone and things were pretty lively here today starting early in the morning. The better grade fish were an early thing and being mostly 140 to 180 lbs. fish. After that we had good action all day long on stockers 80 to 130 lb. yellow fin. There was a good showing of Wahoo as well and really spiced up the day. Big fish honors goes to Paul Rubio with his 203 lb tuna. Final tally for today is 55 tuna and 25 nice Wahoo. We are going to try it again tomorrow. Great weather also. ONE opening for April 23, this is the time to jump on for great spring fishing, contact office for more GOOD info. Please wish us luck, Jeff and the Indy crew


Fishing Begins

03-29-2014
- Good evening everyone we arrived here in the morning and made the tour around only to see very little to work with. We got situated and began hooking tuna. We scratched at the 70 to 130 lb. fish for most of the day and tallied 40 of them and a dozen wahoo for our efforts. We hope for a shot at some bigguns tonight after dinner. The weather is outstanding and everyone is doing quite well. Sea ya all later, Jeff and the Indy crew

FINISHING TOUCHES....

01-21-2014
- Well the last few days out here have been fruitful for us. Good fishing has been on tap for us yesterday and today. Most of the fish is good grade 80 to 198 lbs. with a good percentage of 140 to 180 lbers along with the stocker 70 to 100 lb. fish. We had a handful or two of Wahoo as well. As far as the big fish goes we have had ample chances this morning and they did not work our. I haven’t seen bad luck on these bigguns like this in quite a while, but we have one more morning to get some redemption. Great weather is the call down here. We have racked up about 100 tuna for the past 2 days. And hope for a big hit tomorrow. Wish us luck, Jeff and the Indy crew

- Hey there sports fans; we had a good day yesterday as we had action all day long with a few breaks here and there. The grade was mixed from 60 to 205 lbs. and most being 60 to 150lbs. with 2 cows and a hand full of 150 to 185 lb. fish. 40 fish was the tally for the day. Jim bowman caught a 202 lb. fish while Jack Purtell landed the 205 lber. Today we had some decent action on 80 to 170 lb. fish and we hope to keep getting "em the rest of the day. We have windy conditions at present and hope it subsides soon... Check back with ya all later, Jeff and the Indy crew


EARLY MORNING CHAOS...

01-17-2014
- Things got going early on around 0430 today. It was a full ripper on 80 to 160 lb. fish that lasted till 0700, and then it was done. When tallied it up there were 41 fish down. The rest of the day was slow. The bigguns pulled a no show on us, but there is plenty of time left. The weather is gorgeous down here. Everyone is having a great time. Sea ya all later, Jeff and the Indy crew

- .. well we have been down here for 2 days now and the fishing is good for us. The grade of fish is awesome, as most everything we catch is 100 lbs. and up to 195lbs with lots of 140 to 180 lb. fish. The weather is really good as well. We had a few chances at bigguns but did not work out, maybe tomorrow. Thanks for checking in on us, and wish us luck, Jeff and the Indy crew


OFF AND RUNNING...

01-13-2014
- Hello everyone, and a happy new year to everyone. After a month long break in the action we are currently out on the annual 15 day seeker rods fishing extravaganza... with a very good load of bait and many seasoned big fish regulars we are off and running for points south. Our host again this year is Brian porter, no stranger to this game down here, has been very generous in the swag dept. Seeker rods, 2 x 4’s and other new models have been won by lucky anglers. I don’t have the whole tackle list for give-a-ways, but all the seeker sweat shirts, shirts act... were a big hit. With a few good prospects off our bow we are eager to get to work down there. The past few days have been filled with great football games as well as the rigging process for the up coming battles we so enjoy down there. We will begin the games on wed. Please wish us luck, Jeff and the Indy crew, Matt, Kevin, Cole, Tyler Oscar, end and Rolf
