I have always felt that it takes 3 full days to give the Coronado Islands a thorough check. Today was day # 1 and we caught 31 bonito and 100 rockfish. Spent a lot of time looking for yellowtail and never found anything substantial. Saturday is a definite go with a light load at this time.
22 yellowtail 2 dorado. Unable to find a lucky kelp or a school today.
July 14 and 15 all in one.
We fished the 14th offshore in some haven't been fished in waters for a while and we found plenty of tuna but they were all small. For the most part it's what the grade of yellowfin is this year so we opted to put tags on them. It bit well on one stop. After a while we wound in the jigs due to constant jig strikes, we couldn't short stop anymore without it costing us time in the local grounds where the better grade was biting. Mark and I played a game we call suicide trolling. We each put out a troll rod and the first one to get a tuna on deck wins. The boat doesn't stop. We both got bit instantly but mine fell off. I kept getting bit but they wouldn't hook. After 30 seconds I realized I didn't have a hook on my jig and by the time I got a different jig out we were past the fish and Mark took his time and wound his in for the victory.
We can't complain about today. The weather was as good as it gets. No wind and no sea. It was beautiful. We also caught 54 30-35 pound tuna and for what was around today, it was a good score. We're headed in and we're going to be the first boat in tomorrow at 0530 hours. We'll be heading back out tomorrow on another 5 day trip. See you then.
We don’t ever take for granted just how lucky we are to have perfect weather and phenomenal fishing in the end of October. 177 yellowfin tuna.
