Excel Headed for Home

Capt Justin called in from the Excel with a report from their final day of fishing from their 10 day Hoo trip. We fished Cedros Island to get out from the wind and try our luck, we ended the day with 51 Yellowtail and one nice 25-30 lb Halibut. We are now headed north on our way home, the tackle has been broken down and enjoying the trip home. The weather is getting nicer as we progress north, we will be back at the point tomorrow morning. We are headed out on a 16 day trip departing the day after Thanksgiving, we will check back in again after we depart on this trip.
