Remember yesterday I was talking about plans? Well if you read my first report of the trip I talked about dragging our feet a day and waiting for the weather to get pristine out at the Rocks. That was the master plan and well, it worked out. Today we had great weather to go along with our great wahoo fishing. We arrived to the grounds at 7:30 and we were getting steady jig strikes on wahoo to go along with jigging and baiting until about 5:30 when things around here went to bed. I really wanted 4 more wahoo for the magic number but we tried and tried and we gave up. The fish went to bed so we will too. We're now sitting on anchor getting ready to enjoy a nice sunset before eating a nice dinner. Like I said , the weather couldn't be better. We'll have a great nights sleep. We're going to try this again in the morning and take it from there. It's the last day we ever get in August of 2014 and I'm glad we spent it here.
Gary, we wish you were here. You would have had a blast today. We hope your feeling well.
Susan, Rolf says he has you covered on the wahoo.
Once again, today we had a good day. We started our day off fishing bait. Wide darn open on the small greenies. I was singing the Who song "rain on me" because it was raining bait. It didn't take long to get what we needed for the day and we headed off to the bluefin grounds which is right there. We had one OK stop but right before lunch was our good one. I remember because I ordered my lunch when we didn't have anything going and when I walked outside we had 4 going. I can power down a meal pretty fast though and that's what I did. We were able to drift with that school for hours before it stopped biting. We had a couple per round of those 30-40 pounders. I call those the perfect grade. They are manageable, meaning they're fairly easy to bring to the boat while at the same time when you do you always end with a smile because they're big. The perfect grade. After they stopped biting say around 5:00, we looked for another school unsuccessfully for an hour so we ran back to the bait grounds and had a little start on our re-bait. We'll finish in the morning. Having this perfect bait right next to the fishing grounds is the most special thing about this area. It's more special than the beautiful bluefin we're catching. Sometimes where you caught your bait is more important than where you caught your fish. No bait, no luck.
