Good evening everyone and happy Halloween. Things didn't fair too well for us this morning at last weekends hot tuna spot. You can tell it was a week closer to November because there were only 4 of us there compared to 15 of us there last week. Anyways, like I said, things didn't fair too well for us there. That doesn't mean the tuna weren't there though. At least one of the boats there did well today. We didn't have the patience for it today though. At least not for the veal grade, so we took off at lunch time. We took off in search of dorado. And wouldn't you know it, things worked out. We found three productive kelps this afternoon. The last kelp almost being a fixer upper. So it worked out. We had a good day. 130+ fish day. That'll do.
So we'll be in for the week, and we're going to come back out here again next Friday. We're going to bring along with us the Inside Sportfishing crew. They want to do an episode so if that sounds like something you may be interested in, we'd love to have you. And then after that we leave on a 10 day. So if that sounds like something you may be interested in, we loved to have you then as well.
A very slow pick turned into full speed chaos. 230 yellowfin 6 bluefin (40-60lbs).
I would call today a very disappointing day. We had The Rocks to ourselves today after a 3 day rest and I thought we were going to get um but it was not to be. 0 wahoo. 0. Not even a short biter. We trolled for 4 hours for nothing. I think what I'm trying to say here is we didn't catch any wahoo. We caught a few handfuls of yellowtail in the morning before the sharks took things over and after realizing there were no wahoo to be had we went offshore and looked for a kelp the rest of the day to see if we could get 1 that way or a bunch of Dorado's but that was not to be either. The fishing today stunk. Everything else today was lovely though. The weather today was really nice. The sun was out and the seas were flat. The food is always great out here and the scenery was lovely as well. We're working our way back towards home now to extend our fishing time for the trip. We're going to top off on those beautiful yellowtails tomorrow and spend our last couple of day
s hunting the bluefin tuna.
The pressure is off. We never made it down to any Island today like we planned. At about 9 am or so the sonar went clunk, clunk and we went sideways for an hour. It wasn't the best grade but it definitely wasn't the worst. It was this years middle grade. 8-14 pounds with a sprinkling of 16-22 pounders in the mix. Like I said, not the best but not the 2-6 pounders either. But for a stressed out 4 day captain, it was lovely. They bit good for about an hour and then they backed off. After that we dedicated ourselves to that zone. We figured that school of 14-25 pounders was just right over there. It wasn't. We didn't see another school of tuna. However, we did find a nice kelp loaded up with big yellowtail. They bit really well for a while too. In fact , they were on the corner like tuna get on the corner for a good 20 minutes and when they backed off the corner, they still bit good for a while. Other then that though we didn't see much other then the occasional small tuna on the trolling jigs but we're stoked for what we got today. The pressure is off.
We're going to stick with the plan and spend tomorrow at an Island hopefully drifting for hours. The weather has finally backed off after a couple weeks of blowing. Hopefully we get some descent weather for a nice long stretch and can get back to fishing where we please when we please.
Wow! What a fish. #214 Bluefin. Landed in less than an hour. Accurate Valiant 1000 and Shimano Rail Rod on #100. Dead Flyer. Had a few Yellowtail and a Yellowfin as well.
