6/19-20 — Spencer Canyon — 35 Yellowfin (26 released), Hammerhead

We headed to the Spencer Canyon on Thursday and had consistant action as soon as the lines hit the water.

We fished around the tip of the canyon in 50-100 fathoms. A 69.5-70.5 degree temperature break was holding plenty of bait and the yellowfin weren’t far behind.

The fish hit just about anything we had in the water but hot baits were green machine spreader bars and 9″ rainbow squid bars.

We boated/released 25 yellowfin by sunset and set up on the drift for sharks.

We released a hammerhead shark at night.

Got back up on the troll in the morning and had 9 yellowfin tuna on within minutes. We only had 2 anglers in the cockpit so landing them was tricky but we managed 4.

We had a few more triple headers of yellowfin and then headed for home.

Ended the trip with 35 yellowfin to 60 pounds, 26 of which were released, and we released a hammerhead shark.
