January 2015 Accurate 14-day Trip on the American Angler

As in all the past American Anger Accurate trips, we had a great time fishing with all of our friends, learn some new stuff, made some new friends and got to know our old friends even better.  The 31 card game sure made the travel days go by fast.

Thank you to Brian Kiyohara and his great American Angler crew for making us successful at catching big tuna and wahoo. The wahoo fishing at the Rocks was phenomenal (30-40# wahoo, in January). Thank you to the sponsors that support of fishing trip (Accurate for the reels, Calstar for great rail rods, Izorline for the worlds strongest mono, fluoro and spectra, Swifty Mfg for spectra washing system, Baja Fish Gear for a large gift card, hats, t-shirts and reel cover, Salas Lures for the many wahoo jigs that worked real well until the wahoo bit it off. I hope you enjoy the photos of the prize winners and all the passengers having a great time making memories.
I hope to see all of you on next years trip. Make sure you talk to Lori.
