Hi friends. Yellowtail fishing was off the hook this morning -- or, on the hook, depending on which way you look at it. Fifteen to twenty-eight pound fish just kept coming over the rail and we also had a few flatheads as well. It was all you could've wanted on fly-lined sardines, yo-yo jigs, and surface jigs too but we only took a few boxes to break up the morning and from there, we ventured offshore with the hopes of finding something floating for dorado and wahoo.
Let me tell you, trying to locate kelps in eighty degree water is a difficult task and although we did get lucky and found a couple scraps, they weren't holding all that much. However, we did troll up a few legitimate ball-slappers, a marlin (healthy release), and one really nice wahoo at dusk caught by Mike Henry. His wahoo looks to be in the fifty to sixty pound range and he coaxed that fat skinny into latching onto a purple and black Marauder. Good going, Mike.
For tomorrow, we'll be fishing for all kinds of species but our main target is wahoo. We'll see what tomorrow brings. Our weather is just splendid and the all-day bronze-a-thon continues. I'm starting to look like Hulk Hogan out here. Supreme guns. Later.
We had a bumpy ride last night. It was windy. So we didn't make the best of speed which translates to not having a whole lot of time to fish our last day when we were coming from so far away. We found our edge pretty quick after daylight and we were getting a few strikes on small tuna but like I said, we didn't have a lot of time to fish it. We were able to follow it up the line for a couple of hours getting the occasional strike before we had to call it a day and call it a trip.
The weather has been getting progressively nicer throughout the day and now we have a pretty darn good ride. Everyone is doing what you do on travel days. We had a nice fish taco lunch and last time I was in the galley the passengers were taking it way back and were watching the 90's classic "Deep Color" movie staring Tommy Rothery and the Polaris Supreme.
We'll be in bright and early tomorrow and we're going to be turning back around on another 5 day trip. Tommy will be going home and I'll be taking her out. Gunny is hanging in there strong like the Marine he is and we're hoping he'll be back within a month.
