27 pass. 3 bluefin tuna at 135 lbs, 132 lbs and 80 lbs. 2 yellowtail. Had a couple shots at trophy’s. Sinker rigs on 50 lb with a 6 oz torpedo and 150-250 gram Flatfalls on 50 or 60 lb was the best today. A 40 lb flyline outfit is also recommended. Two speed reels that are at least a 12 size will increase your chances drastically. Seaforth Sportfishing has two speed reels for rent.
82 yellowfin 2 bluefin 19 yellowtail. When we stop on a school of tuna every bait that hits the water gets looked at by the fish. If it isn’t presented perfectly they won’t touch it. We highly recommend changing your bait often, the more presentations you make the more likely you are to make a perfect one. 20lb flouro and size 2 hooks are what worked best.
We had another slow day today darn it. It's crazy how fast things change out here. One day you're gettinum and the next day you're not. We tried for a few yellows this morning and caught to less than that. It wasn't long before we were out in the deeps hunting tuna. We saw very little. We covered alot of ground today for a few over 20 on the tuna. They were mostly jig strikes spread out throughout the day.
The weather out here is fantastic and we're enjoying our ride up. I can smell the filet's on the grill now Oscar style. Thanks again Archie, the group was great. We'll be in tomorrow and yes, departing on another 5 day.
