The old timers used to say “ wind from the south, fish close their mouth”. Today we had a brisk south wind all day and the yellowtail were a bit off. We saw plenty of fish and managed to land 83. Flylined baits and yo-yo jigs were the best today.
35 bluefin 8 yellowfin. Long “plunker” drifts were the name of the game today. A rubber banded 4-6oz sinker on 40-60lb line got most of our bites.
The Yellowtail are biting extremely well right now.
We had a great afternoon on them yesterday and this morning as well!
We are hoping to pair some Bluefin with these Yellowtail later this afternoon.
Will report again later,
San Diego Anglers private charter wanted taco meat, so we put the yellowtail fishing on the back burner. We enjoyed the day and caught limits of calico bass 112 vermillion rockfish 13 barracuda. Back on the yellowtail hunt tomorrow.
OK. So once again, we were one of the lucky boats today. Two days in a row, we're carrying the horseshoe. We had arguably our best stop of the year this morning. A month ago we had a day where we caught a larger quantity of yellowfin than we caught today and ultimately we caught more tonnage that day, but the quality/quantity of these yellowfin this morning were second to none in 2015. Holy Toledo. Same grade as yesterday. About a 25 pound average. One fish hold down. We feel blessed. It was not for everyone today unfortunately but fortunately we were one of the lucky ones.
The afternoon stunk for us though. It got very crowded in the zones that had fish and it made it tough to stay in those zones. We kept wanting to leave but we wouldn't see anything when we did so we would end up back in the crowd and that fish wouldn't bite well. It was a long afternoon but much easier to handle with one full well on board already.
The weather was great. Just like San Diego weather because that's where we were. Tomorrow we're going to be concentrating on bluefin tuna. We've caught 18 of them the last couple days and they are beautiful. We want some more. The boats that fished it this morning were not happy about it but we're hoping it was an off day today and they want to float tomorrow. Timing is everything and so far our timing has been right on. Let's keep this ball rolling.
