Accurate 5-day American Angler Trip; July 21-26 2019Gary Teraoka
We got off to a early start on the Accurate 5-day trip with Ray Lopez at the helm. We took a little bit of a boat ride to fish yellowtail first. Then it was even further to fish the yellowfin. We knew we were in the right spot since there were at least 6 large seiners in the area and one of them was trying to wrap our yellowfin along with the American Angler. The last 2 days was dedicated to chasing bluefin tuna to settle the jackpot. Every trip has some sort of uniqueness that sets it apart from other trips. We had 5 multi-generation families on this trip along with a couple of groups from past trips. Family affair comes to mind. By the end of the trip we were all friends with all of the families.
I posted as many photos as I had from the first half of the trip. My camera had a malfunction in the middle of the trip so I did not get any on-deck photos for the last couple of days. I will bring my new camera and my backup waterproof camera next year.
I wanted to thank my sponsors that supported this trip. Accurate Fishing Products for providing loaner Accurate reels, Calstar rods for providing the rods for these reels, Izorline for providing the spectra, mono and fluoro for these loaners, Salas lures, Island Tackle, TacGlue and Sportsmans Seafood Fish Processing. This is an annual trip that we have been doing for several years. If you want to join in the fun next year, just give Lori a call at the American Angler office (619 223-5414).
