We had excellent yellowfin tuna fishing today. It wasn't a one stop shop or anything like that, but rather a short stopping thing for six or eight or more per stop but we did this every hundred yards or so and we did this all day. Normaly we would be 100% stoked with this fishing but unfortunately the grade was not great. We were looking for the 25-35 pound fish and would never think twice about keeping an 18-25 pound fish but the fish we were catching were as small as 8 pounds and not very many exceeded 12 pounds. We had good action though. We were kept busy all day long. Nobody had time for a nap. We were kept on our toes. Anyone who wanted to keep some yellowfin tuna had that opportunity today and many did though we released about as much as we kept but like I said it was still fun none the less. The weather wasn't ideal. The wind was blowing some and the current was going straight into the wind which calls for rolly conditions but the sun was out and it was ok. Everything seemed to smooth out after dark.
We're going to go do some yellowtail fishing tomorrow. .
The ride going up last night wasn't good, although I can't say it was awful either. It was just your average windy rough ride up the line. I'm just not used to it, that's all. The weather for the most part these last couple months for me has just been so good. It doesn't matter because the weather got good again for the important part which is the fishing. And we took advantage of it. We found our dorado kelp. The dorado were small to big and they were plentiful. It was our first dorado kelp of the year. Finally. Though we've had plenty of other specie to keep us busy this year. If you know me you know I'm all about the competition so I like to make searching for kelps fun. Today I challenged Mark to a kelp off which means the person who finds the loaded dorado kelp wins. He found it and of course I couldn't be happier about it. It may be the only thing I'm glad to lose to. Of course he wanted me to tell you all about it. He finally beat me. It was the cherry on top of this wonderful trip. Another one in the books. We're headed back to the barn all fat and happy. Fat from too much eating and happy with all the fish we caught. We'll be dockside tomorrow morning at 6:30 and yes, we will be heading back out to sea. I'll be taking the LA Rod and Reel club out fishing for a couple days.
Good fishing again today in the local tuna grounds it sounds like. Let's make it one more tuna trip for the year before it's over. Our October 3rd and 6th trips are both for sure goes. Let's, and by that I mean you, make our September 26th and 29th trips a go too. Come fishing! My baby can be without her dad for another week if it means she gets those shoes she's been begging me for. 5 months old and she's already begging for shoes. Holy Toledo.
Today was kind of a disapointing day for me. I had plans of having good fishing in the morning at Cedros then heading to Benitos and having descent fishing there. Well the water got funky on us due to the big south swell that was pushed up from the tropical storm that rode it's way up. It was a green green green and the yellows didn't like it. They were still there like they had been for the last week but they didn't bite well. After 4 1/2 hours we gave up on it and went with plan b. We arrived at Benitos after lunch and I will say we saw a good amount of fish all over the island. The problem was the sea lion population. Those things are out of control right now. It's wierd how it works at that island. Sometimes they're tolerable and sometimes they're not. Today they were not. We're headed back to Cedros now and we'll give it another chance tomorrow. This south swell seemed to back off some late today so hopefully there is some strong current through the night tonight to flush all that icky water out of there.
I just reread what I wrote and it sounds worse than it was. We scratched out an ok day. We averaged over 3 fish per rod. Compared to the last week it was slow but back up further and we had a stellar day. See you tomorrow.
