Sunday night we spent the day targeting trophy bluefin with tall of the boys from fish 101 restaurant. We had some very good opportunities through out the day. Landing 12 fish biggest was right at 300lbs then closely followed by a beautiful 275lber and the rest where in the 60-80 lb range.
Today we fished yellowfin tuna. Fishing was good, when the dust settled we had 113 fish in the hole all being 12-18 pound fish. We did also see a couple nice schools of bluefin but didn’t not hook any unfortunately. Back out tonight !
I think I'm going to start naming my reports. This one is called "We should have stuck with the game plan". The plan was to start where we did, and if it didn't look good run up 40 miles to the next spot arriving just after lunch when it's bite time there. Well we started off slow. Conditions were a little funky. We saw some fish, but they didn't really bite. We caught a few yellows and the biggest ling cod I've ever seen brought up on this boat, but it wasn't good enough to stick around. So we started off sticking with the plan when we left and went north but then we decided to do some radio fishing. I heard 4th hand and then 3rd hand that a boat had a couple really good dorado kelps the day prior almost in striking distance and then really good yellowtail in the afternoon definitely in striking distance. Then I saw on my water temp chart that same water just a few hours below us so we made the move. Obviously by my whining you can tell it didn't work out. We didn't find much kelp in the good water. We found one OK kelp but we only caught a handful of flats. There was a few wahoo swimming around it but we didn't catch any.
So that's OK. We're not worried. We still have yesterdays afternoon yellowtail hot spot to fish. Not today. Should have been here yesterday. Maybe that should be the name of the report. We saw some and caught a few but it was nothing good. So here we sit. I'm not sure if we stuck with the game plan that it would have worked out. There already was a boat on the spot we were headed to and it's kind of a one boat spot so maybe we didn't miss anything.
It's funny. I haven't written this long of a report in a long time. If fishing was good today I probably would have written one paragraph. I needed to rant. Anyways we're going to stick it out here and regroup and try it again in the morning. Hopefully we find some yellows to work with but either way we plan on looking for a dorado kelp in the afternoon. Hopefully I only write one paragraph tomorrow.
Good evening folks. We started this morning off with our efforts toward making some bait but just couldn't get it to bite so we switched gears and got into fishing mode. The guys put 7 yellowfin on the deck then it was wahoo time. For our efforts, we were rewarded with 20 nice skin for the day. No complaints about that. We even managed to land a few more tuna in the middle of of trolling around. When the hoo decided to move on, it was right back to tuna fishing for the rest of the afternoon. All in all, the guys put together a 30 fish day, not bad at all.
Chef Mike and Gringo in the galley still continue to please with todays lunch being a homemade crab bisque along side a stuffed portabello mushroom and ending the day with Mikes famous Polaris Supreme style cashew crusted fresh wahoo, rice pilaf and snow peas the could have been served in any fine dining restraunt. Everyone is geared up for tomorrow and ready to go. So we'll check back in tomorrow night.
