Strong south wind made things interesting today but we’re able to find a lucky kelp in the bottom of the ninth. We managed our quota of green dorado and 16 yellowtail.
Today was one of those days that make you appreciate biting fish. We saw plenty of fish but, it was hard to get close to them or when we did get close getting a reaction was even harder. Tomorrow is a new day !
Not a very good day for us today. I wish I could call it a travel day too but we did a lot of fishing, just not catching. Well, we did need to travel for 4 hours of the day to put us in position for tomorrow, so maybe I can call it a travel day. Anyways, the weather today was pretty crappy when I first woke up and not much better when we arrived to our first fishing destination of the day at 7:00 AM. That could be why the wahoo weren't there and biting. But after 3 hours there, the weather was nice. The wind backed off and the ocean flattened out. Unfortunately 12 miles below there the current did a 180 and the wind picked up a little and things got jacked up. The swell and chop were coming from every which way and we couldn't pick a smooth course. We got our roll on for most the rest of the day. Spot #2 looked like we could've caught a bunch of nice yellers but the skip jack wouldn't let us have any of it. They were hitting everything we threw in. That's alright though. We needed the chunk for tomorrow. We did get a few nice yellows though.
After that we had a delicious cheeseburger and some took a nap during our 20 mile move. I had high hopes for this place but it was not to be so we threw in the towel a bit before dark to make sure we give ourselves plenty of time to get to our next destination. We'll be hunting for cows tomorrow. We need a little luck and by that I mean good timing. The fish need to be on the bank tomorrow for us because above here didn't seem like the answer for the last couple of days.
Mama Bear: Though we only caught a few wahoo today, your little rascal caught one of them. His first wahoo. I guess the ritual for that is a deck hose soaking? I never heard of that but he got a drenching after that one.
Oh how quick game plans can change out here. Hello all and welcome back. Or welcome me back. Or... What was the question? Never mind. I'm back. I had a wonderful trip off. Spent a lot of time with my daughter. She got much cuter in the last month and also became much more of a terror. All joy though.
When we left the dock this afternoon I felt pretty good about my game plan. Go fish yellows for a day or two, then come catch tuna for the last couple of days. We caught over a hundred tuna today on our departure day. Good ones too. 20-40 pounders minus one 20 fish stop on small yellowfin. Well that just threw a wrench in my whole plans. I'm not whining though. We're very grateful for what we caught today. Not every boat in this ocean caught fish today. So we're going to take it one day at a time now. Hopefully we can do this again tomorrow.
