We drifted most of the morning until around 9 or so. We drifted due to us catching fish. We caught a whole lot of fish this morning. They weren't the same 20-25+ pounders we've been getting. There were a few of those, but these were about half that size. It wasn't what we were hoping for but they were still fun. The guys were having a blast. They were getting some practice at the whole tuna fishing thing, picking a good bait, where to drop in, follow your fish... And they got to use some of there tags as well.
After that we thought it would be a great idea to make a few hour run and get to San Clemente Island to catch those big yellows we caught there a couple of trips ago. In theory it sounded great, but we didn't catch very many yellows. We ended up bailing on it and looking for some bluefin that's been hanging around there. We saw one pretty good spot around there but they wouldn't bite. At dark we ended where we'll start tomorrow. Some boats had some pretty good days here today on a very good grade of yellowfin along with some of that 25-50 pound bluefin as well. Oh how I hope we can get in on some of that tomorrow.
Time will tell. Cross your fingers at home. We'll take some good luck anywhere we can.
