Hi friends. We made it back up to the tuna grounds at first light and found absolutely beautiful weather and the "football" yellowfin tuna were hungry today. Steady jig strikes all morning all the way up until we found a kelp that accounted for most of our score on this day. It was a really fun kelp too. You could look in the water and see brown for most of the stop and these fish were on the squid real nice and the skip jig as well. Kub Ito even got in on some hand-line action which was pretty entertaining. Speaking of Kub, Kub had ten minutes of hardhat time for two minor offenses. Good job, Kubby bear. Anyhow, fun morning of fishing and flat calm, sunny weather to boot. A fine way to end a fine trip and Joe Beck and the boys are pumped.
Anyhow, we're traveling up the line in a very calm ocean and we're looking to arrive to the docks at 0600 where we will be getting the boat turned around and heading out on our annual Gary Roberts 9-day trip. We'll chat with you tomorrow evening sometime. Take care.
P.S. Absolutely no hardhat time for Mark this trip. Shocking, I know. Granted he was in the galley this trip but nonetheless, he was on the boat. Good job, Mark. You now have nine days to reclaim that beautiful yellow dome of yours. Stay tuned.
The guys have called in with 11 bluefin from 40-80 lbs for 24 anglers . They still have plenty of time to fish. Stay tuned.
Steady stop and go action on school grade yellowfin. 59 yellowfin tuna 1 yellowtail. Private charter tomorrow tomorrow then back to open party on Monday.
We had a good day. We had a great day actually. From about 8-12 it was pretty darn good fishing. We scratched before that and we scratched after that. And from 5:30 until close to dark we had very good fishing. The best of the day. Heck, I'll call it the best of the year for us. Quality and quantity. Through out the day the fish was all mixed up. !4-22 pounds. This evening I don't think I saw more than 2 fish below 16 pounds. Most were bigger then that. Like I said, we had a good day. And we did it in the wind too. All day long it was windy, windy, windy. But we didn't care. We were catching fish.
We're going to stay the night and try and get another good hit in the morning and take it from there. We may mess around up the lee of the Island or take off offshore and look for tuna. We'll play it by ear. First things first, we want a good hit.
