Not much to report from us today. It was a pretty uneventful day. We traveled all morning until after lunch when we arrived to the Islands, and we never saw a yellowtail. It was dead as can be at this place. We took the tour, well as much as we could in a few hours, and ended up back here in the lee. We were and still are catching calico bass and things. We did hook something big, a yellow or a big halibut or even a seabass, but we'll never know because the hook straightened out right before we could see it and the fish got away. And that's it. We're going to try and keep our anchor hung right here and see what kind of conditions we have here in the morning for our last day of fishing. As soon as the wind backs off enough for a tolerable ride offshore Tuesday morning, we'll be on our way home.
We fished today with all our buds. Obviously it was the best game in town. We had boats from San Diego up to Ventura all nestled in sharing the same honey hole. 15 of us to be exact. It all worked out though. It was a nice spread of fish. Everyone was able to scratch. Scratch, scratch, scratch. From after daylight until after lunch. Then things went dead for the most part, so we pulled anchor and found a nice school to drift on. After a long drift the day was pretty much over. We drove around, made another anchor job but the fish were done. Just like us. We're done for the week. It's up to you whether or not we fish this next up coming weekend. Halloween weekend. See you there?
Oh, the fish today were tuna. Yellowfin. Smaller. We had a couple handfuls of 30-40 pounders first thing, but as soon as the current picked up, for some reason the bigguns split. So we stayed busy with the smaller ones. Veal. Oh, and they found sardine again. Loaded up. So don't worry 10 dayers.
Another great start today. The Yellowtail are biting extreme well. It was a great couple hours of fishing to start the day.
After we had enough inshore fishing we decided to head offshore to look for Bluefin. We were able to connect later in the day, with 5 Tuna up to 40 lbs.
Tough conditions offshore, hoping the tuna will bite better soon.
We will be in tomorrow morning,

Hi friends. Our final fishing day was spent pulling on big, beautiful yellowtail in the 18-25 lb. class with a couple of standouts here and there. These fish were hittin' on the yo-yo iron real nice and the guys are all worn out from all the crankin' they did today. It was a nice way to end the trip on a high note and at days end, we had to call it a trip and begin our trek back to San Diego. We'll be traveling all day tomorrow to arrive back to the docks on Saturday morning. The seas are beautiful at the moment and it's looking like we'll have more of the same for tomorrow. We'll report back with you tomorrow night.
P.S. Uncle Eddie says "NICE!!! Green flash on the sunset tonight".
