2 stops for 205 yellowfin tuna and 75 skipjack. Amazing local tuna fishing continues !
Remember yesterday when I said we would find our dorado kelp? Well we conquered that quest. I tell no lies. An hour or so after breakfast, maybe 2, we found a kelp loaded and we went to battle and overall I think we won. I mean we caught exactly what we wanted. Beautiful mahi mahi. After that we went back to travel mode and we'll be arriving to our slip in San Diego tomorrow at 0800 hours. We ate some of that mahi for dinner tonight while we watched a slide show of all the pictures taken this trip presented to us by Tommy. Everyone misses there wives and they all told me, "Drew, I couldn't spend another minute without my wife". That's why this trip was 15 days. It's the maximum amount of time we can spend without our wives.
So we tie up tomorrow and that's the way we'll stay until November 9th, when we'll be departing on a 10 day trip. So until then, I'd just like to say how much I'll miss writing to you all. Stay classy and thanks for stopping by, but mostly, stay classy.
Manny Sanchez with 1 of our 2 bluefin. The bluefin we saw today were in a little different mood. Hoping for an attitude adjustment tomorrow.
It's been hard to find a biting fish offshore lately. But we connected with one in choppy, mixed up seas. Dylan saved the day!!

Hi friends. The past couple of days has seen us hit numerous beautiful kelp paddies and after weeding through excellent dorado fishing and nauseating yellowtail fishing (WFO 3-5 pounders, all released with the exception for a handful of standouts), we have little tuna to show for our efforts. It's just a matter of finding the right deal that wants to get with it and we haven't been the fortunate ones since our incredible Friday. Anyhow, on a lighter note, the bronzing offshore is just top notch. Gosh it's nice. Beautiful weather has been a big bonus and we're hoping to finish off the trip with a bang tomorrow and fill up with some tuna fish to go along with our weather. Wish us luck tomorrow and don't go chasing waterfalls.
Mark's Hardhat Update:
Mark has been issued the hardhat on two separate occasions for two minor offenses for a total of ten minutes of helmet time thus far. There's still time for him to commit a major penalty and be forced to an all day helmet show. Fingers crossed.
