Opah Caught on the Red Rooster III!

Red Rooster III arrived at H&M Landing when skipper Andy Cates docked the boat July 16 after a six-day trip. "Benitos was good fishing," he said. "Cedros was OK, and we spent a nice morning at Sac Reef fishing up the beach. Conditions there looked good."
Lance Yamanaka of Pasadena won first place for his 38-pound yellowtail. He caught it with a sardine on a 4/0 VMC hook on 25-pound Seaguar Premier fluorocarbon, 25-pound Izorline and 60-pound Izorline spectra. He used a Trinidad 16 N reel and a Calstar 850 H rod. View The Full Report
