Arrive/depart. A quick one too. We were out before 9:30. We got our bait and we were gone. We started fishing after lunch. We had one little area that was loaded up with 5 pound skipjack. We stopped a few times to let everyone pull and jerk on something and practice following there fish around the boat and stuff. We had a couple kelps with a few small yellows we caught. We unfortunately made it to our destination before dark. I say unfortunately because we were hoping to bump into something sooner. We saw only a few little dabs of tuna while we had light. I mean just a few fish, and they didn't bite. We're currently anchored in the cove here and we're enjoying a nice prime rib dinner and I think we'll sleep well tonight.
It sounded like it was a better day around here. Not just catching wise but fishing too. Never thought I'd say that but what I mean is there was a bigger spread of fish seen today. They weren't all seen in the same honey hole like most of last week. We have high hopes for tomorrow. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going on break.

Hi friends. Well, the day finally arrived and instead of "to-do" lists and parts lists and repair and restoration work, we have our eyes solely focused on stars, a peaceful ocean and visions of tomorrow that has some unable to sleep properly. I'm thankful to say that we have set sail on our first voyage of the 2012 season with Billy Stephen's and his crew of merry lads - young and old alike. Everyone is excited to see what tomorrow brings as we will be targeting Bluefin and Yellowfin tuna and any other offshore foe that wishes to test our hunting skills. We're ready. The blood is pumping and after a hearty feast of prime rib, we're sending everybody down to the rooms to rest up for a long day tomorrow. We'll be up at 0530 and when the sun finally sets at around 2030 hours (summer days seem to never quit), we'll report back to you on our scores and accomplishments and hopefully, they are as bountiful and endless as our fantastic traveling weather that we enjoyed today.
We're back. We've got some old salts on here that know a thing or two about fishing, a crew with hands that are far too gunked up with grease, paint dust and other souvenirs of a lengthy boatwork and some young guns to boot. First trip of the year is an exciting one indeed and we'll see how things play out tomorrow and we'll report back to you at the completion of our day.

P.S. To all of our lovely ladies back on land who are so gracious to let us go fishing for days and days on end. First of all, hello. How are all of you this fine evening? Good, we miss you too. Now, to all the mothers; the kids are all tucked away in bed and to say they are pumped is an understatement. Everyone is in good spirits and the men are doing a noble job of teaching them to harnessing that energy, get some rest and hit the deck early tomorrow morning. It's all good. Good night now.
Had to cover some water, but mid morning the ocean came alive with feeding Bluefin everywhere. We caught 5 and a nice yellowtail.
Covered a lot of water today. Found a good school in the bottom of the ninth. Ended with 66 good grade yellowfin.
