Jacobsen Pilot Service #2

Capt Art Grant lined up some of the boys from Jacobsen Pilot Service and a few tug boat guys to get out on the Gail Force for the second time this season. We had a good opportunity to get a big score but something about these smaller Yellows that makes them pretty hard to get in the boat. We ended our day hooking about 25 yellowtail and boat 12. The fish we any where from 8 to 40lbs. Also in the mix were some decent sized Calico Bass and Barracuda.
Big thanks to Capt Grant for getting the guys together for another fun trip!
