We started our morning off again in the local bluefin zone. Things felt a little better. There were only about half the boats that were there the day before. It had a much less claustrophobic feel to it. Unfortunately the bluefin didn't seem to care. It was on the slow side. In 4 hours we managed 9 of them with 20 yellowfin to go along with them. We left for the day and looked around for schools. We scratched here and there throughout the day. We had some reports of spots of 100+ pounders up so we made it there for the evening hit but never found a school of those. We did catch some nice grade yellowfin though so with those and the sign of the 100 + pounders we know where we're starting tomorrow. But first things first, we're going to run into the beach and try for bait tonight and as I write this we just finished up and we're headed back out with a couple tanks of mackerel and a couple tanks of sardine that we still have for ammo.

We departed today on a private charter with 21 passengers. We hear the weather is coming down so we are anxious to get to the fishing grounds. We should be there tomorrow morning.

14 yellowfin tuna and 5 bluefin tuna. Once again, unbelievable amount of tuna in our zone. Most of the fish are strung out on tiny chovies making them very difficult to hook. A dedicated flyliner with 25 lb has a chance at a yellowfin. A dedicated flatfall or sinker rig fisherman with 50 lb has a chance at a bluefin.

Today we had to work at it. The Yellowtail did not come easy, but we were able to piece it together with a couple flurries in the morning. For the most part the Yellowtail being tagged have been great size,18-35 lbs! In addition to the Yellowtail we we did land some beautiful grouper. Both Snowy and Leopard!. A great 8 day trip bonus!
Will report again tomorrow,
