The reports will now be generated through the office as we are out of our Sat phone range. Our weather is good and we should arrive to the fishing grounds at 4 pm tomorrow, Saturday. The reports of excellent fishing have us all excited. We're just doing the normal stuff, and getting our equipment rigged and ready. Had a great lunch today consisting of the critters we caught yesterday at Alijos Rocks.
Check back tomorrow for an update.

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.
Go fly a kite. We did. Awesome weather and great signs of big tuna all around us. We hit them with everything we had -kites, sinker rigs, fly line sardines, mackerels, flying fish on 100 lb then 80 lb, then 60 lb, then 40 lb, then 30 lb nothing. Chunking - nothing. Anchored, then drifted, then trolled. We proved that fishing does not equal catching. If you listened close enough - you could hear the cow tuna laughing at us. We found solace in chef Schoolers platters of sashimi, wonton cups filled with marvelous ahi poke and bacon wrapped asparagus. We heard of a place where 30 lb Dorado and mid sized yellow fin play. We are going there now.

Timing is everything. And so far our timing for the most part has been a little off, whether it be wrong day or wrong time. This morning we caught some quality fish. Less of them then we were hoping but we caught a handful of 35-50 pound yellowfin mixed in with several handfuls of smaller ones and a couple of wahoo. It didn't take long for Tommy to figure out that this was the wrong day not time. So we took off from there in search of. We found a few more wahoo on our next spot but only landed one before we kept sliding down to new zones. We fished a couple other spots for just a couple more fish while setting ourselves up for some stellar bait making. We got that job done before dinner and as I write this we are anchored up in cow town. We're expecting a couple slowish days while we're down here but the fish we land should be trophies.
The weather down here remains good. Clear skies, little wind and it's hot and muggy. Well I'm going to go back to bed for another hour or so. Check back to see how many trophies we get today.
Captain Mike Pritchard checked in tonight with an update from the Tribute out of Seaforth Sportfishing in Mission Bay. We had a nice day of fishing for our group of 33 passengers today. We caught 4 Bluefin and 165 yellowtail (mexican limits). We had to go almost 80 miles to go get some today. We go again tonight.
