I'm sitting here trying to figure out how to start this report. Well, the bottom line is the cows gave us the slip today. We got hosed. The 20-60 pounders were there though. They weren't shy to nestle up under and around the boat. They were a little shy to bite though. We ended up with a few over 1 per rod on the tuna today. More than half those were 40-60 pounds and the rest were 20 pounders. Like I said, there were no lack of those fish. This afternoon we couldn't be sitting any better. The fish were under, around, and the school was right behind us where our lines were going, then at 3:30, poof, they disappeared. And the cows never showed. We looked around the bank for awhile after but there wasn't a scale around anymore. So we left and we're not coming back.
The weather today was fantastic so we can't blame it on that. Oh well. At least we still caught some nice tuna and made jackpot easy to figure out. We're going to try and catch some bait tonight and fish for all of the above tomorrow.
The San Diego out of Seaforth Landing in San Diego,CA checked in with us today:
32 yellowtail. Still good sign of yellowtail around but they definitely felt used and abused after the busy weekend. Back at it tomorrow hoping for an attitude adjustment.
8 Bluefin and 3 Bonito today for our group. The big one weighed in at 215 pounds gill and gutted (probably 240lbs) The fish was caught on a flatfall and 100 pound test.
We had a slow day. And there's no sugar coating it. There's no let's let you decide if it was slow. It just was, and unfortunately for this trip we don't have another day to make it right. There was a one hour window where if you were in the right place at that time and found a school you were in for a good bite but that was few and far between and unfortunately we weren't the few. We scratched a little in the morning, found a dandy school before lunch that let us catch a few handfuls before swimming away, and we found a stretch of and area this afternoon that we thought we were going to make something happen, we found three kelps in a row with tuna on them but they would only boil around and not bite except for a few.
On the plus side our weather today was fantastic. If you're going to have a slow day fishing, it's a whole lot better doing it in good weather than in bad weather. I also saw alot more of San Clemente Island than I ever have before. I now know more about the looks of the island itself and the bottom structure of it. We're headed in now and we're turning around again tomorrow for 2 more days.
And one last thing. I'm not going to mention it because I only heard this second hand and I don't want to start a rumor if it's not true but a sport boat out here today caught a wahoo. Now once again I'm not going to mention it, but one boat, maybe the Prowler caught a wahoo. I'm not going to start a false rumor so I'm not saying anything.
