115 yellowfin tuna 98 skipjack tuna. 80 of our yellowfin were 18-30 lbs. the rest were 10 pounders. The skipjack are extra large. Please bring a 25 lb rod and a 40 or 50 lb rod. Size #2 hooks for your 25 lb rod and size #1 for your 40 or 50 lb rod.
We finished up the trip today mostly concentrating on yellowtail. We kept the wire on in case we got into some wahoo and weren't going to steer away from tuna either. Well we did get a wahoo today. A nice fat one. 60 pounder? We'll see at the dock. We saw a few schools of tuna that wanted nothing to do with us and we saw a few foamers of good grade yellowtails. We got on top of one of those foamers and they flashed us for a second and then left us. We only caught a handfull before they were gone. We chased down a few other schools but they all sank out before we could get to them.
To recap the trip we caught all you want on big fat dorado, lots and lots of school grade yellowfin tuna and had a pretty good catch of wahoo throughout the trip. We spent two full days hunting the cow yellowfin and saw plenty each and all day but only have a couple trophies to show for our efforts. A lot of non biting fish but that's how the cookie crumbles sometimes. We only had a couple days of choppy weather and other then that it's been beautiful. We're heading home right now with just a fantastic ride up the line.
Another great day of fishing out here. We had 160 rockfish 7 lings and 137 whitefish for 16 guys on the Endeavor.

Hi friends. We woke up today to a lovely Sunday brunch complete with Belgium waffles, bacon, eggs, and bloody mary's. I didn't have any. Sad face. After brunch, we were treated to all of nature's glory with rain, lightning, and thunder. Some of the strikes were less than a mile from us. Amazing. Anyhow, after a carne asada taco lunch and more cocktails that I didn't have, we made it to the fishing grounds and enjoyed a couple of drifts on a beautiful grade of yellows up to twenty-five pounds. They were biting that yo-yo jig real nice but our bite was short lived. After the sun had set, we sat down to a prime rib dinner and lots of red wine that I didn't have and we finished off with pecan pie and ice cream. I had some.
So that was our day in a nutshell. Hopefully the fish aren't as crabby tomorrow and we can get down to business. Wish us luck and we'll hit you up on Monday night. Peace out, homies.
Well, we started off in the hot yellowtail zone this morning. Us and 4 of the other long range boats. I'm not at all going to call it a bust, it just wasn't what we were hoping/expecting. Things were a little on the slow side. It perked up for a little while but it was short lived. It wasn't bad. I mean we caught almost 50 yellows there before lunch. And they were nice ones too, let me tell you. 26 pound average is my guess without weighing a single one. Maybe 28, OK. But by lunch it was done, done, done. So we got mobile. It wasn't for a few hours before we found something worthy to shut down on. We found a kelp and caught another 25 beautiful tails. I mean beauts.
So we can't complain. 75 gorgeous yellowtail today to go with flat calm, sunny weather. I can think of many, many days out here where I would have paid plenty for a day like we had today. We're making that move while we still can. We'll be getting our Island on tomorrow. Hopefully we can put some more quality yellows on board and fish our last couple days up there in tuna land.
Getting to know your crew: Mark didn't inherit his eating habits from his dad. Nope. Mr. Clark himself is out here in the flesh and I've bussed his plate twice now and I haven't seen a finished plate by a long shot. Mark would never. Especially now with him being hungry all day and all with the diet. Oh, and I guess I have tendonitis in my Supinator muscle which is awesome Stoked.
Matt Hess? Shame on you buddy. I'm supposed to give you a shout out here and I don't even no what to say to you I'm so disappointed. Oh well, see you next time I guess. And Joe Miller. My buddy Joey. You were the first one Jed and I asked about. Get yourself all fixed up and we'll see you next year. We love you and we miss you buddy.
