Fished in Cabo San Lucas for 7 days, Aug.19- 26. I fished with Roberto on his boat the Merengue. The highlights were three blue marlin in the 125- to 150-pound range, released. As many small tuna as you had rods. Two mates and myself were releasing six fish at a time. One day on the 95, by ourselves we found spinner porpoise and very large tuna. Enclosed is a picture of one the fish that weighted in at 225 pounds on a Marlin Magic Lure with a couple of wings added. This school had nothing but large fish. Rare day of fishing.

While fishing Wednesday, Aug. 28, 2017 in 80 feet of water off Leucadia in really soupy foggy conditions, my friend Byron Fields caught this 54-pound white seabass. As we trolled home in front of the Carlsbad power plant, we landed a 30-pound yellowfin tuna.

While fishing on Labor Day weekend with family, I caught this beautiful rainbow trout that weighed 4.5 pounds. Fish was caught at Bridgeport Lower Twin on a mini jig.
