Today was just slow. There is no way to sugar coat it so I won't try. The wrong kelps had no fish, the right kelps had no fish. We had a pretty good spread of boats working it with us too but it was a no go. We gave up on the offshore thing in the afternoon and tried to salvage a day at an Island but it didn't work out. Poor sign of fish with a great sign of seal.
We're going to regroup and try again tomorrow. We're thinking a nice nights sleep on anchor should do the trick. Hopefully I have some good news for you tomorrow.
Arrive depart today. We offloaded a beautiful catch, got fuel, changed oil + fuel filters, swapped out some crew and left the dock by 10:00. We're good. We left on a very long running charter called the Heil charter. I won't go into our bait loading, I'll just say we have some bait on board. We were in the fishing grounds before 3:00 this afternoon. The couple boats that departed yesterday had some good yellow finning. When we got there it just had that "should've been here yesterday" kind of feel to it. We didn't see much. We had one long drift where we picked up 14 but other then that it didn't feel like we were going to get a hit so we rolled out of that zone. Below there didn't look much better until right around 8:00 when the sun fell we had a good old fashioned blind jig strike that resulted in a good stop. We always fish till the end over here and tonight we were rewarded. The fish bit full speed but only for a flash but it was long enough to get everyone on board at least one with many getting three or more. They were snapping. I call departure fish free fish because we weren't even supposed to be fishing. They're free. Anyways we're going to fish again tomorrow. See you then.
Oh yeah, the weather is still sooo nice. We're going to have to pay for this stretch.
"Fixed up" is a good expression to describe our day today. We had very good yellowfin tuna fishing. We arrived to our destination shortly after breakfast and after about 1/2 an hour of searching we found what we were looking for. A school of 25-30 pound yellowfin. It bit for a little while before we had to relocate the school, which we did a few times. After that we found a different school of a more mixed grade of 10-30 pounders that we hit a couple times. Then we found a school of mostly 16-22 pounders that we did well off of. I think you get the point. We had a good day. Along with all the tuna we caught, we also managed 7 wahoo and 4 dorado. I'll say it again, we had a good day. We're feeling satisfied. Worth the days travel to get where we've been the last couple days, that's for sure.
The weather today was fantastic. Fan tastic. We'll be traveling tonight and sleeping in tomorrow. We're shooting to be fishing tomorrow afternoon. We'd like to top off on some yellers.
