He made the right move. Tommy that is. We came, we saw, we conquered. I told you we'd be at The Island today. It was good. We had good fishing. We arrived after breakfast, and found a little something to work with but we could tell it just wasn't it. So we looked around and we found "It". Premo's. Premiums baby and lots of them. We had one heck of an afternoon on premium grade yellowtail. When we say that we mean a mid to upper 20 average. Slug yellowtails. You never get used to it either. Every time someone brings one over the rail it's like, "dang those things are beauts"! And that's all I have to say about that. A very full hold of slugs and then some.
Once again we can not get one to bite the surface iron. The past few trips have been prime surface iron conditions. We have the Big Banana out(the long pole) but we can not get Banana crazy. Weird.
We're going to try and get our tuna on the next couple of days. If we happen to bump into some more YT's along the way then ok. That'll be alright. The fleet for the most part has been off the mexican yellowfin the last several days and we're going to try and get back on them. It's sounds like there has been an impressive amount of fish being seen up above in the U.S. It doesn't bite on a consistent basis yet but that's soon coming. It bites fairly often but I have a feeling the fleets in for some very good fishing in the near future. I'm not necessarily trying to get you to book, but come on, book. There may be a spot or two left.
