We had a slow day. And there's no sugar coating it. There's no let's let you decide if it was slow. It just was, and unfortunately for this trip we don't have another day to make it right. There was a one hour window where if you were in the right place at that time and found a school you were in for a good bite but that was few and far between and unfortunately we weren't the few. We scratched a little in the morning, found a dandy school before lunch that let us catch a few handfuls before swimming away, and we found a stretch of and area this afternoon that we thought we were going to make something happen, we found three kelps in a row with tuna on them but they would only boil around and not bite except for a few.
On the plus side our weather today was fantastic. If you're going to have a slow day fishing, it's a whole lot better doing it in good weather than in bad weather. I also saw alot more of San Clemente Island than I ever have before. I now know more about the looks of the island itself and the bottom structure of it. We're headed in now and we're turning around again tomorrow for 2 more days.
And one last thing. I'm not going to mention it because I only heard this second hand and I don't want to start a rumor if it's not true but a sport boat out here today caught a wahoo. Now once again I'm not going to mention it, but one boat, maybe the Prowler caught a wahoo. I'm not going to start a false rumor so I'm not saying anything.
Once again, today we had a good day. We started our day off fishing bait. Wide darn open on the small greenies. I was singing the Who song "rain on me" because it was raining bait. It didn't take long to get what we needed for the day and we headed off to the bluefin grounds which is right there. We had one OK stop but right before lunch was our good one. I remember because I ordered my lunch when we didn't have anything going and when I walked outside we had 4 going. I can power down a meal pretty fast though and that's what I did. We were able to drift with that school for hours before it stopped biting. We had a couple per round of those 30-40 pounders. I call those the perfect grade. They are manageable, meaning they're fairly easy to bring to the boat while at the same time when you do you always end with a smile because they're big. The perfect grade. After they stopped biting say around 5:00, we looked for another school unsuccessfully for an hour so we ran back to the bait grounds and had a little start on our re-bait. We'll finish in the morning. Having this perfect bait right next to the fishing grounds is the most special thing about this area. It's more special than the beautiful bluefin we're catching. Sometimes where you caught your bait is more important than where you caught your fish. No bait, no luck.
