I was very fortunate to meet a great group of guys (assembled by Rick Jensen of SportfishingFinancial) for a 2-day charter trip on the Liberty out of Fisherman’s Landing. Taro Takeuchi is the owner/operator and he went the extra mile to get us bluefin and yellowfin tuna as evidenced by the fact that we did not return at the scheduled 5 pm but got back around 10 pm so we could land over 60 tuna on day 2. We had over 35 tuna on day 1. Accurate provided TERN and Valiant demo outfits on Valiant rods for all the passengers to try out. The largest tuna of the trip was caught on a 500 Valiant demo. Check out the photo trip report below.
Thanks to Rick Jensen for setting up this charter and thanks to Jack Nilsen for providing the Accurate gear. Izorline got a pretty good test of some new 40# fluorocarbon that they are evaluating. The passengers were also very impressed at how light and castable the Valiant reels and rods are. Thanks to Taro and crew of the Liberty for going the extra mile to make for a great trip.
Great fishing, great group of guys, great trip.
