From the Times-Standard article, Tuna Fever Hits the North Coast:
Gary Blasi of Full Throttle Sporfishing spent two days on the halibut grounds last week and reported a real good bite. He limited out both days with the big fish tipping the scales at 70 lbs. He was fishing in 250 ft of water straight out of the harbor.

Captain Gary Blasi of Full Throttle Sportfishing has the hot halibut hand of late, putting in limits on just about every trip. According to Blasi’s, you’ve really got to put in some time in order to be successful. Sunday he spent the day fun fishing with his fiancÃ©e and it was a day they won’t soon forget, with two fish over 20lbs and one tipping the scales at a whopping 30lbs.

On Tuesday, Captain Gary Blasi of Full Throttle Sportfishing had the hot hand. All told, he had 12 hookups and managed to bring five keepers to the net for his customers. All were caught on either herring or anchovies in 20 to 25 fathoms and between 20 to 90 feet on the wire.
The much anticipated Salmon season got off on a rough start this year. From the Times-Standard Fishing the North Coast:
After sitting out the salmon opener with a minor boat issue, Captain Gary Blasi on the Seaweasel was back on the water Sunday. What he found was warm water and no salmon. On Monday he trolled his way down to the Cape and had a couple grabs, but nothing stuck. When he arrived at the Cape, he put quick limits of big rockfish in the box.

For the boats that made the left turn out of Humboldt Bay and trekked down to Cape Mendocino over the weekend, the reward was limits of tasty bottom fish. The halibut bite on the other hand, has tapered off the last few days. On Saturday, the boats that stayed close to home and drifted for halibut had a miserable day. A fierce wind and a ripping current made it nearly impossible to keep your bait anywhere near the bottom, even with four-pound balls. The lone bright spot was a 34lb halibut caught by a 13 year-old angler who was fishing with Captain Gary Blasi aboard the Seaweaseal. But that was it for the Seaweasel and most of the other boats reported big fat zeroes.
Word is getting around that the Seaweasel has maxed out on Halibut for the past three days. Captain Phil Glen of Shellback plugged Full Throttle Sportfishing to the Sacramento Bee in their May 13 edition of Fishing Line.
EUREKA – The ocean finally calmed down and anglers got out for Pacific halibut with good results that included a big fish of 70 pounds, and several others in the 35- to 45-pound class caught. Most fished around the 300-foot contour straight out. “The action isn’t great, but it’s fair,” said Lonnie Dollarhide, who fished with Captain Phil Glenn on the Shellback. Three anglers on board caught three pacific halibut topped by a 46 pounder. “Captain Gary Blasi of Full Throttle Sportfishing has had limits of halibut the past three days!” he added.
It’s no surprise, though; Full Throttle Sportfishing has had the highest pacific halibut count in Eureka for the last 5 years. Be sure to sign up for a halibut charter trip.Read More
The Seaweasel, along with 14 other boats went out Monday to the Halibut fishing grounds in Eureka:
The Seasweasel, with Captain Gary Blasi of Full Throttle Sportfishing at the helm, found fish and found them quick. Though a minor boat malfunction cost him a couple hours in the morning – by 11a.m. he was drifting over one of his favorite spots. It didn’t take him long to figure out there were no takers, so he pulled the lines and moved south. Within minutes of dropping the gear at spot number two, he had a double and brought both fish to the gaff. Thirty minutes and a couple drifts later, he was headed to the barn with limits. Not a bad way to start the season.
