Today was an enjoyable day out here in the old west. We didn't catch much fish, but we still had a good time. I take that back, we didn't keep much fish. We started this morning in a little zone, and it was full speed jiggin um up. Stop and go, stop and go, stop and go. Mostly small yellowfin unfortunately.. There was a sprinkling of good ones in the mix along with some nice yellowtaiil, and it sort of felt like any minute we'd find that school of good ones, but it also kind of felt like we were in the wrong zone at the same time. Funny how that works.
By mid morning we were out of there. We made a move up to the next break. The fishing wasn't very good for us up there, but the weather all day was excellent, and when you have a boat full of friends aboard, you can't miss. We did see some cool wild life. There was a pod of, must of been 10 not sure what kind of whales that swam across the bow. Nobody else saw, but I saw all of them at once breeching when they were about a mile or so off. We also ran across a couple pods of Orcas too. With these we cruised for a while along side of them and checked out the Shamus of the wild. It was some good viewing let me tell you.
About an hour before dark, only 7 miles away, a boat got on a school of the better grade tuna and caught a bunch. Unfortunately for us, we didn't connect before dark more than a half dozen of these but we know where to be tomorrow and we're confident we'll get a bunch.
Never found the lucky kelp today. Still scratched up a mixed bag in beautiful weather. 18 dorado 27 yellowtail 29 skipjack.
One day trip 21 yellowtail, 11 dorado, 4 bluefin tuna, 2 yellowfin tuna. Fun day, back out tonight !
