First of all, what the heck was that?! Did you see that tonight?! Holy Toledo! It was like a rocket or something, blasting through the sky, then all of a sudden, boom! It just lit up. For a second there, I thought that was it. I thought, see you later world,. This is it. Then it was just out of control. I watched it with the gyros for a while and it was zippin and zappin all over the place with a huge green glow in it's wake. Wow!! And the whole fleet saw it. From here, out to there, and into there and all the way down there. I can't wait to hear the explanation. I'll remember that forever.
OK. Onto fishing.. Today, we had a bad day. Just an old fashioned bad day. And I wish that was all I had to say about that, but you make me write more to you. That wouldn't be good enough. So I'll explain it. Last night I downloaded what I thought was a tasty looking water chart. It shows much much less warm water around but there was a lovely looking strip of warm headed southeast from Clemente. So I thought I had this great idea to start at the Island, and leave when they closed it down at 11:30. Well it's what we did. We started at the Island, only we didn't catch a whole lot. A handful of nice yellows and some junk was all. So we stuck with the plan and headed down that strip of warm water. You know, the promise land, so I thought. I was wrong. And that's all I have to say about that.
We did experience some great flat calm weather. And we caught our first ever American wahoo in November, so that was cool. Good boat, good crew, and good food. We just missed the good fishing. Sometimes you eat the bar, and sometimes the bar eats you. Sometimes you're sitting field level, and sometimes you're sitting nose bleed. That's all a part of the game.
