Hi friends. We made it back up to the tuna grounds at first light and found absolutely beautiful weather and the "football" yellowfin tuna were hungry today. Steady jig strikes all morning all the way up until we found a kelp that accounted for most of our score on this day. It was a really fun kelp too. You could look in the water and see brown for most of the stop and these fish were on the squid real nice and the skip jig as well. Kub Ito even got in on some hand-line action which was pretty entertaining. Speaking of Kub, Kub had ten minutes of hardhat time for two minor offenses. Good job, Kubby bear. Anyhow, fun morning of fishing and flat calm, sunny weather to boot. A fine way to end a fine trip and Joe Beck and the boys are pumped.
Anyhow, we're traveling up the line in a very calm ocean and we're looking to arrive to the docks at 0600 where we will be getting the boat turned around and heading out on our annual Gary Roberts 9-day trip. We'll chat with you tomorrow evening sometime. Take care.
P.S. Absolutely no hardhat time for Mark this trip. Shocking, I know. Granted he was in the galley this trip but nonetheless, he was on the boat. Good job, Mark. You now have nine days to reclaim that beautiful yellow dome of yours. Stay tuned.
Good evening everyone. We wrapped up our trip today. And it was an interesting day. First off the weather continued to produce variable wind. Flat calm and gorgeous. Onto the fishing. As you know we almost had no sardine today. We used it well though for the time we had it. The bluefin floated today. Everywhere you looked there was a 30-50 pound bluefin gently rolling on the glassy surface. Other times you would see the whole school swimming on the surface. It definitely had that feel to it. We caught 30 fish from 30-50 pounds this morning before we ran out of bait. For the time being it was great but sad when we ran out. We still had a couple tanks of big mackerel to use and Tommy had it figured out where we would use it. So we made a few hour move and it didn't take long after we arrived to the honey hole before we were gettinum. Big yellowfin. 45-65 pounders. It felt like we were anchored up at Alijos Rocks when the tuna were around there. Those fish liked our mackerel. We caught a few over 20 of those bad boys before they quit biting. I wish we could be in 2 spots at once.
So we have a 1.5 day trip leaving tomorrow afternoon Aug. 27 and we want you to go. Let me try and talk you into it. Now this is me speaking truth. Not blowing smoke at you. The weather still is fore casted to be great great. Variable wind. Now I told you we had great fishing this morning while we had bait. A lot of the boats that had just left on there trips that had bait all day drifted all day. Not all but a lot. They drifted and they caught. It's a good time to go fishing I'd say. Good grade, good fishing. Let us take you fishing, feed you great, show you a good time and hopefully the bonus, catch lots of fish.
Limits of quality Yellowfin (170),155 Yellowtail and 25 Skipjack for our group yesterday in flat calm weather.
We go again tonight with only 6 booked so far. 619 224-3383
OK. So once again, we were one of the lucky boats today. Two days in a row, we're carrying the horseshoe. We had arguably our best stop of the year this morning. A month ago we had a day where we caught a larger quantity of yellowfin than we caught today and ultimately we caught more tonnage that day, but the quality/quantity of these yellowfin this morning were second to none in 2015. Holy Toledo. Same grade as yesterday. About a 25 pound average. One fish hold down. We feel blessed. It was not for everyone today unfortunately but fortunately we were one of the lucky ones.
The afternoon stunk for us though. It got very crowded in the zones that had fish and it made it tough to stay in those zones. We kept wanting to leave but we wouldn't see anything when we did so we would end up back in the crowd and that fish wouldn't bite well. It was a long afternoon but much easier to handle with one full well on board already.
The weather was great. Just like San Diego weather because that's where we were. Tomorrow we're going to be concentrating on bluefin tuna. We've caught 18 of them the last couple days and they are beautiful. We want some more. The boats that fished it this morning were not happy about it but we're hoping it was an off day today and they want to float tomorrow. Timing is everything and so far our timing has been right on. Let's keep this ball rolling.
Today was a good day. We got into the yellowtail mid morning and it was game on till lunch time. The grade wasn't the best but it was good enough. 12 up to 22 pounds and all in between. We had the passengers save some tags for the bigguns though the common grounds looked dead so we traveled to new grounds and connected near the end of the day. Everyone had a few more shots at them before we had them wind um up so we could put ourselves in position to be at the bluefin grounds before daylight.
The weather today was great. Cold but windless and on a boat thats all we care about. No wind no sea. Shawn through out a kick but appetizer spread and we're preparing to eat a seared ahi dinner. Can't wait. Gotta go.
Mama Bear- Little Bear still has both feet planted on the boat and is doing great.
