Trolled by San Anton and Ensenada Grande on my way to Pena Blanca, today. Nada at the first two locations but we caught 4 YT between 10-15 lbs in about 45 minutes, south of Pena Blanca. All on the troll, all on a Mirrolure 111MR-HP. That's the one with the hot pink belly and back and the silver scale sides. That's the only one they wanted; not green, not blue, not purple.

Left at 10.45 to tow a boat back in. Great day for fishing, great day for towing, too, as it was flat, calm all day. We put my friend's grandson on his first yellowtail and did a good deed for our fellow man.

I would like to send a Huge Shout out to Hook, the Captain of the fishing vessel Marisla for the assistance to myself , my wife, and our visitng friends, and towing in for 14 miles , the fishing vessel Luna Sea. We lost and injection pump almost to White Rock, and were dead in the water. It was a long tow, but on a good flat day. Really makes me proud to be a member of this very generous and kind community ! Salude Captain ! Muchas Gracias !

I would do it again, for a boater in need. Anytime, everytime. We gotta stick together out there, in the absence of any Vessel Assist type service.

BTW, MM, here is the outfit that I bought my towing harness from. Not cheap, but absolute top quality. I bought the towing bridle, but I cant remember the sizing. 

http://www.mooringlines.com/tow_lines.htm

I also had them make me up a section of line with an anchor shackle on one end (that I attach to my bow towing eye) and a stainless steel snap on the other end (to attach to a towing boat's tow line). I keep this attached to my bow eye and secure it around my bow rail, so I am ready to be towed at a moment's notice. 

Towing from the bow eye has two main advantages over an attachment to a deck cleat. One is that the towing eye usually has a stronger backing plate than a cleat. The other is that the eye is a low point, near the waterline, so the tow rope is actually lifting the bow of the boat. When the attachment point is on the deck, the towline tends to push DOWN on the bow, as it applies pressure to your anchor roller. The limiting factor on the speed of the tow is the speed where the bow of the towed boat starts to push too much water out front of it. 

I think I might have gotten another 2-3 knots out of the tow, if the attachement point was lower.
