We had a descent day of yellowtail fishing today. We were looking at schools of yellows this morning that wouldn't bite before making a move where we looked at schools of yellows that would bite. Not full speed but just a comfortable pick for hours. The quality was good. 20-25 pounders. After lunch it stopped biting for the rest of the day. We took a tour of the island for nothing then settled back in where we were before but it never picked up again. We're headed back offshore for a couple days in hunt for those tasty BFTees with plenty of bait now.
Yesterday morning I was looking at the positions and forecasts of positions and conditions of hurricane Odile and it sure looked to me like we'd be able to go around it that night. So after consulting with Tommy, he did some research and he agreed. And by dark yesterday I was 95 percent sure we could do it. Not enough. We need 100 percent out here. So we headed straight west most of the night until I got an update on the storm at 2:00 am which made me 100 percent sure we could easily make it around the storm. So we hung a left and we've been traveling all day heading for Alijos Rocks. We had some choppy weather this morning but we couldn't tell by our ride because we were going with it. Down swell = a good ride. The weather is nice now that I write this and we're expecting the same the next few days at least.
We usually expect a couple travel days on an 8 day trip and today was one of ours. We did try really hard though to find a nice big dorado kelp but we were unsuccessful. The only kelps we found weren't big enough to hold a school of mahi. So we'll have to do it tomorrow or the next day. Or the next, OK. We'll be concentrating on wahoo first thing tomorrow. We'll be saying our wahoo prayers tonight. I'll check back later.
Howdy folks. Arrive depart day today so I don't have any juicy fish stories for you. We made it dockside by 5:30 in the am. We had a lovely time of off loading a beautiful catch of yellowtails, then an even better time of fueling the vessel. When we got back to our slip I was surprised to see my mother who just happened to bring my lovely daughter down to see me. I didn't know she was coming and did not expect to get to see my Sydney so that just made my day. But we're out fishing now so it's all business.
Things went great at the bait receivers. We topped off on some good looking sardine and we're looking to put them to good use tomorrow. We have a report from one of our code boats fishing on the grounds we fished last trip offshore wise and it sounds interesting. A better grade of fish moved in today and we're going to investigate it tomorrow.
Everyone on board is just relaxing now or stuffing there face with prime rib. I'm about to join them. Mark's trying to diet and it's hilarious. I've never seen him give the slightest about what goes in his stomach and he's going crazy with hunger. He's a big boy and he's' having chicken fried steak withdrawal. See you tomorrow. Hopefully our timing is right on tomorrow and we get some of that action on those better tunas.
