    Never posted a report on any of my trips but I figured you guys would enjoy this one. Pulled out of Venice marina on my buddies 31 contender Sat. morning about 10 am and returned Sun. morning about 9 am. Tally was 15 yellow fin(I'm standing in front of one in the picture so it looks like 14), 1 sailfish release, a few blackfin, and a couple grouper. The yellows were chewing pretty good. Caught on about everything, chunks, jigs, poppers, and live bait.

    I think that load will just about fill the fishbox on a 31 Contender. Good trip.

    You nailed it man. We actually broke the hinge on the lid to the main fish box it was so crammed full.
