We started this morning off with a bang. We were up at 0400 hours and loaded up on mackerel, then we went and found a nice school of 20-25 pound fish that bit for us for a little while. They were biting the surface iron great and I decided this morning that my favorite kind of fishing is surface iron for big yellows. Big tuna and wahoo are really cool too but man o man is it fun. My passenger and bud Dennis wasn't hooking any. He usually does but he had a straight rod the whole drift. When it slowed down he noticed that his jig had no hook on it. Through all the excitement he ever noticed until it was done. I thought that was kind of funny. Bummer though. The bite was rather short lived as was expected and after that we did some scouting. We found a nice school of those 20-25 pounders but it was tough to get them to bite. Throughout the rest of the day we did some scouting and caught fish and did some scouting and didn't. We ended up with about a hundred and we're satisfied.
We're going to stay the night and try this again in the morning. I'm thinking about fishing offshore for tuna in the afternoon. We'll see how tomorrow goes.
