Hi friends. Today, a couple boats came out of their days looking like Kate Beckinsale and some boats came out looking like the love-child of Whoopi Goldberg and Gary Busey. I'd like to think we were somewhere in between. Anyhow, we caught a few handfuls of nice bluefin, a couple of nice yellowtail and one really nice dorado. It's just a matter of finding one that wants to stick with us and bite. Our weather is okay and we'll be giving it our all tomorrow. See ya.
Another fun day of mixed bag tuna action.
Well, we just finished up our last day of our last trip of 2014. We fished the coast for yellowtail and junk this morning. And remember by junk I mean the small good eaters. It was a successful morning. The sun wasn't even up yet and we were getting yellows and others. It was good fishing. The grade was small, 10-12 pounders but we didn't have more then 8 yellowtail on board prior to today so we were tagging them. For a little while anyways. We let everyone get a few along with there junk before looking for something else. We made a few drifts after that for another couple handfulls of yellows and some whitefish and stuff and then it was mid morning and we had to call it and head for home. So that's what we're doing now.
Another successfully trip I'd call it. We had some action the first couple days fishing, then we got to see the 2-300 pounders boiling around(unfortunately none would bite but they were there), and then we had some great action on wahoo and tuna, and then we finished her off up above getting action on the yellers. We'll be unloading at 6:30 tomorrow morning, and like I said, we'll be tied up for a while. So it's that time.
It's time to write this. I write this at the end of every season. I should just copy and paste it every year because it's the same, as it should be. I'd just like to thank everyone who fished with us this year and in previous years on behalf of myself, the crew, and all the way to Tommy and Susan from the bottom of our hearts. You're what keep us going year after year. You're the reason we can take care of ourselves and our families. You're why we can enjoy life off of the boat and on the boat. You make our world go round. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's been a fantastic year. We'll see you all at upcoming fishing shows and on future trips. See you around.

Hi friends. Our week consisted of us mainly preparing for the final major painting projects to be completed. We completed the necessary steps for the bait tank and bus stop to receive a new paint job. Tomorrow, Jamie and myself will be down at the boat to scuff up the first coat of gloss, wipe down, and hang out as the painters finish up the final coat. We'll have Sunday off and then on Monday, it'll be time to hustle up and get the boat back in the water. A few other chores on the list before we say farewell to Knight & Carver Yacht Center include sanding the rails to be refinished at another time, put the liferafts back on the boat, install all the new zincs and pray the we're back in the water Tuesday or Wednesday. Drew, Tommie, Mark, Jamie and myself are really looking forward to getting the boat back in the water and once back at the docks, our dirtiest chores are pretty much over and all the remains are little "knick knack" cosmetic things, putting the new freezer box on the upper deck, painting the deck, refinishing the rails and a few mechanical repairs. We're starting to see light at the end of the tunnel and it's a beautiful sight.
In other news, Jed went under the knife on Thursday to have his tendon repaired in his thumb and all went well and from what he said, it will be six to eight weeks of recovery time followed by some physical therapy. Jed's doing just fine and here's to a speedy recovery to have him back on the boat sometime in August.
With that, our weekend is looking good for some relaxation, Clippers/Lakers game sevens, Kings/Coyotes hockey and the Gator By the Bay festival at Spanish Landing in San Diego Bay. We hope you all enjoy your weekend as well. Take care everyone!
Today was an enjoyable day out here in the old west. We didn't catch much fish, but we still had a good time. I take that back, we didn't keep much fish. We started this morning in a little zone, and it was full speed jiggin um up. Stop and go, stop and go, stop and go. Mostly small yellowfin unfortunately.. There was a sprinkling of good ones in the mix along with some nice yellowtaiil, and it sort of felt like any minute we'd find that school of good ones, but it also kind of felt like we were in the wrong zone at the same time. Funny how that works.
By mid morning we were out of there. We made a move up to the next break. The fishing wasn't very good for us up there, but the weather all day was excellent, and when you have a boat full of friends aboard, you can't miss. We did see some cool wild life. There was a pod of, must of been 10 not sure what kind of whales that swam across the bow. Nobody else saw, but I saw all of them at once breeching when they were about a mile or so off. We also ran across a couple pods of Orcas too. With these we cruised for a while along side of them and checked out the Shamus of the wild. It was some good viewing let me tell you.
About an hour before dark, only 7 miles away, a boat got on a school of the better grade tuna and caught a bunch. Unfortunately for us, we didn't connect before dark more than a half dozen of these but we know where to be tomorrow and we're confident we'll get a bunch.
