Let me wine for a few sentences please. With the exception of a 3 day window in the second week, we haven't had two days of good weather in a row in the whole month of August. It's tough to even make it a full day with good weather. Windy August 2013. Screw you August. Needless to say it's not very comfortable traveling right now. Good weather early turned to blown out pre lunch, then backed off for an hour , now blown out again.
OK, I'm done now. Slow fishing today. We had three deals today that didn't bite all that well. 8 out of 1, 14 out of another and then we had 1 for 1 and then we called it a trip. Oh well, we still had an awesome trip. We'll be in tomorrow after 7:00 in the morning and the big guy will be taking it out for a 5 day trip.
For everyone on board this trip who is reading this report later, thank you. You make our world go round.
Happy July 4th everyone.
We started our morning off doing some bluefin watching. It's like whale watching but instead of whales you watch bluefin. In other words they didn't bite. We got on one spot and they were practically smacking the side of the boat they were so close but they wanted nothing to do with us. After a little bit of that and a kelp for some yellows and our first dorado of the year we started getting strikes on yellowfin. It was pretty steady for 1 1/2 hours then shut down for 1 1/2 hours then started up again for 1 hour then went completely dead. We went west because west is best. After lunch things got interesting. We started to see big schools of yellowfin and it didn't stop until dark. As my grandma would say, "holy Toledo!". Unfortunately they were not biting fish. We would get stops for 2,1,1,2,4,1,1,2,2,3,3,3,1,2, like that. But we stayed busy and worked hard at it and scratched out a nice catch. We had 40 tuna stops and averaged 2 per stop. Now thats scratching.
The weather was incredible. As my grandma would say, "holy Toledo!". Variable winds all day. That means there wasn't enough wind to measure. I think that's what it means anyway. We're headed back in and will be docking at 7:15 in the am and we will be turning around on a 6 day. I'll be your captain. See you then.
Incredible amount of fish in our range right now. We see bluefin from big to too big. Yellowfin tuna from 5-25 lbs. open water yellowtail from 8-15 lbs. most of the fish are slurping small anchovies on the surface and do not bite. We did manage to land 7 bluefin from 30-75 lbs and 4 bonito.
The San Diego out of Seaforth Landing in San Diego,CA checked in with us today:
39 yellowtail 1 halibut 75 whitefish 8 sculpin.
