My final report will be relatively short but sweet as I re - emphasize a bit of advice and bid everyone farewell for the next ten days. The advice: depend on the crew for your rigging instruction as they are the ones that possess actual current knowledge of the setting in which you will be fishing. I can not stress the importance of this advice enough as it has undoubtedly been the key to success for the vessels posting consistent record catches on these beautiful. giant yellowfin tuna. The guys that are presently out here are the best in the world and are proving it almost daily. Why seek advice anywhere else?
For those anglers on upcoming trips following the Christmas/holiday break, it seems that the big fish are settled in. Unless there is some catastrophic change in conditions such as a storm front pushing significant cold water into the region or a major shift in ocean currents, preparations for trophy yellowfin fishing are in order. With the tremendous quantity of giant yellowfin tuna around this season, who knows how long this run can last. I will talk about this more tomorrow on Let's Talk Hookup with Pete Gray as Randy and I are the Saturday guests. I hope you are all listening and if you have questions, please give us a call!
Finally the entire Royal Star crew would like to express our gratitude and extend our sincerest well wishes to every angler venturing a long range voyage with us this season. We wish you a splendid Christmas/holiday season and a prosperous, healthy, happy 2006 full of spiritual satisfaction.
