Here we go again. One last short trip of the year. My last trip as the captain. El Capitan, Master, number 1,el jefe, the chief... After this one Tommy comes out for 15 days. You'll still get my blogs though because I'll be here. Right now though I'm thinking about this trip right here that we're on right now. I'm feeling some dorado and tuna tomorrow. I'm hoping we get it done early and I have the problem of figuring out, OK, what next? That would be real nice. We'll see. I have her on course and I'm feeling prime rib tonight. I don't think I've eaten it in 2 years out here but tonight might be the night. I haven't been very healthy lately so what's one more drink on the Titanic right?
We had a great day. Of course the morning had us worried. We started in the day befores hot spot and it was ice cold. I felt disgusted but what we do in those situations as a group of boats is find them and that's what happened so in the afternoon we had a couple very good drifts on yellowfin tuna. Our first drift was at 2:00 after lunch and it was a long plunker bite of 1-3 going at a time. After that we already had a good day and a good trip. We had the whipped cream and the nuts but I wanted the cherry so after an hour or so of hard looking we found our sun downer school. It was a little more fast paced this time and it lasted almost until sunset on the yellowfin and well past dark for the 3 bluefin we hooked. They were 50-80 pounds estimated. We'll find out at the scale tomorrow. They'll make jack pot go quickly because I'll only need to weigh 3 fish.
The weather today was fantastic. We're headed in and we'll be dockside tomorrow at 7:00 in the AM. I'll be handing the keys over to Tommy and I'm finally going home for the first time this season. I'm looking forward to getting to know my baby again who will be turning 4 months this Saturday.
