Nothing to report on Oct. 13. More of the same. Though it was our last day so the cocktail hour was to a minimum. We arrived to our destination around 1:30 in the am Tuesday morning. We did a tour for flying fish (to use as bait) but we only caught a few. We kicked the anchor over and most of us got a couple more hours of sleep. Everyone got up at 0400 hours and got to work. Some faster than others. When I woke up George was the only one in the water so I thought I'd give him a hand. I threw a sinker on a rig and dropped down a sardine and 5 minutes later we had our first tuna aboard. About an 80 pounder. It was our sashimi fish. After that there was a whole lot of good shark and small tuna fishing going down so again during a time when no one was in the water (due to having to retie because of shark teeth), I dropped another bait down, this time on the rod Mark likes to call the OJ (no one knows why), and about 20-30 minutes later we had a 196 pounder aboard. While that was going on George got hooked up and brought a 218 pounder over the rail. It wasn't even light out yet. After that the sharks fully took over. It was pretty much unfishable so we didn't give it much time, we pulled anchor and got to trolling and for the next 8 hours or so it was steady striking on the wahoos. Damn. We caught about 5 per angler so I'd call that good for sure. For the last few hours we got steady strikes on one of this groups favorite fishing methods, trolling the yummy fliers. We caught a lot of tuna today on those and on the marauders and some on bait. They were all mostly in the 120 pound range.
The weather today sure was interesting. The wind never had much strength but it couldn't pick a direction. One minute it was coming out of the northeast, and the next it was coming out of the west. It did that all day so for that and the sharkies giving us grief we never tried another anchor job today and we're spending the night adrift. It also rained a whole lot this evening. I'd say it was raining cats and dogs when I went to bed but it's cleared up now at 0100 hour as I write this on my watch. One more hour and I'm going back to bed until 5 when we'll all be going back into battle. Hopefully tomorrow these dang sharks leave us alone.
Well we never saw a bluefin today. Or a dorado for that matter. We were ready for them too. I had my lucky bluefin cap on, Gunny had his bluefin pants on and Mark is fat. Nope. Never saw a one. We did once again see some yellowfin tuna of all sizes. One kelp we looked at had an incredable school on it. We just sat there and watched the tuna boil around in fury. It was really cool. We just watched because for one, we already had our limits and for two they were the smaller grade. We called it a little earlier then we planned on due to the weather. Oh man. It was really nice weather in the morning. Then suddenly after lunch time it got really windy out and we started to really roll around alot. I'm currently standing with my legs as far spread apart as I can get them just to be able to type this report and I am misspelling every other werd.
We are headed to the barn now and we get 2 nights in to spend with our wives, fiances, girlfriends, friends, pets and family depending on which crew member we're talking about. We come back out Tuesday night on a 1.5 day trip. This was definately a memorable trip and I mean that in a good way even when it was bad it was good. Cool group and myself and the crew are glad we got to spend this 8 day with them. Thank you.
Ran into some phenomenal grade (30-50 lbs) ahi. A long drift accounted for 39 tuna and 44 yellowtail (10-18 lbs)
