Today we saw yellowtail, dorado, yellowfin and bluefin of all sizes. Unfortunately we were only able to catch 1 yellowtail. Hopeful for tomorrow. The wise angler would bring an assortment of setups from 20-60 lb.
Amanda Cervallos and Kimber Reed display 2 of the 152 yellowfin we caught today. The savvy angler would bring a rod to fish 20lb and a rod to fish 40lb. We also recommend bringing out a pair of pliers to remove your hook during a hot bite.
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.
Well today wasn't at all what we expected. Last week it had been great yellowtail fishing in the zone we were in but for whatever reason most that fish wasn't around today. Famous words of Steve Loomis, "only one things for sure and that's that things will change". So true in life but especially true in fishing. Things will always change whether it be for better or for worse. Unfortunately today it was for worse. That's why you can't base your booking a trip on last year or even 2 weeks ago. Oh well. We caught a few nice yellows today and lots of other species we saved for meals later on in the trip because they'll be tasty. We're now heading south. We're going to start fishing first thing tomorrow fishing for D, all of the above.
Passenger Mike Payne brought a whole bunch of crab with him. I'm not sure exactly what kind of crab they were. They weren't king crab but the next best thing. Basically it was all you can eat because when I had all I could take down there was a lot of it still available. Delicious. Talk to you tomorrow.
Captain Mike Pritchard checked in tonight with a final wrap-up from the Tribute’s offshore trip today. We had 9 anglers and caught 17 Bluefin Tuna (one shy of limits), 1 Yellowfin Tuna and a Yellowtail. We had flat calm weather. We are back at it tonight. Come on out and go fishing on the Tribute.
