I just woke up and thought I'd better write this before I forget about it. Last night after our late hit we made a 5 mile move tighter to the Island in this little bay, if you would. Man o man was it good sleeping. The boat just gently rocked us to sleep. Gently. The AC was pumping and we were all beat from our day and kind of sick of the wind, so we came over here, out of the wind and fell asleep with our thumbs in our mouths. Now it's getting about time to fish. I'll let everyone sleep another hour and then it's wake up time. See you tonight.
Midday report: We left The Island around noon. It wasn't as good today as it was yesterday. It was still good, we were just hoping for a little more in a shorter time. It might be because of all the bait that's around here. I can't imagine they haven't been just stuffing there face all night and morning. i've been fishing that Island for 15 years and I haven't seen anything like it. Even the Godfather himself called it an "unbelievable" amount of bait there. And then at noon when we were looking for one more stop, all the life vanished Just like that. Poof. I didn't give it any time after that looking. We left right away. So it took us a couple hours longer then I was expecting and we were just a stop shy of what I wanted but we're still looking good on yellowtail. We saved a little room for tomorrow.
So we took off in search of tuna/dorado this afternoon, and we were unsuccessful. The ride up so far has been fine. The weather forecast looks good for tomorrow. It should be good to start and only get better throughout the day. We deserve it. The reports above in tomorrows tuna zone for us were good today. There were some productive kelps up there today. We want some.
Happy Anniversary, Renee, thanks for letting me go fishing, I love you!!!! D
34 pass. 170 skipjack tuna 1 yellowtail.
Starting November 1st we will be running full day Coronado Islands trips. Bring your yellowtail gear and your passport.
We kicked the you know what out of the yellowfin today. We engaged in battle and we won. We started our drift at 6:30 this morning and drove away from them biting at lunch. The fish were from 22-35 pounds and were snapping. I don't think I've seen that good of fishing on that good of a grade since the albacore days. Hopefully this lasts for some time to come. The weather was great today but the further north we go now the more choppy it's getting. Just in time for dinner.
We've just been traveling up since our only needed stop this morning setting us up for our last day in the bluefin grounds. It sounded slow up there today but maybe they're just waiting for captain Drew to get up there. Rent rod Ryan donated a 40 pound bluefin yesterday to the galley and we were planning on eating it for dinner tonight but in the middle of the mayhem today we lost it buried under the yellowfin so he donated a few yellowfin so we're having seared Ahi instead. Mmmmm.
A awesome sunset and some action on bigger Bluefin last night. But..... in typical Bluefin fashion lately, the big ones came through and bit baits flylined on gear from 40-60 pound. We had two fish at color in the dark (estimated @ 130 pounds) and somehow the last 4 fish of the day found their freedom (1 spooled, 1 broken hook and 2 pulled hooks). These things can be down right mean.
