14 pass. 2 bluefin tuna (55&90 lbs). Felt like we had a really good day but when we opened the fish hold we only had 2 fish. Missed several other opportunities. Come prepared with good gear.
Trip wrap up: It was a hell of a trip with a great group of guys, with great tackle from Accurate and great food from Shawn. Yes we had some nausea from hurricane Paul but that's something you have to deal with sometimes in long range sportfishing. Thank you so much Mr. Joe Gigliotti and The staff at Accurate for letting us use and lend out your Accurate tackle.
Jackpot goes as follows: Dale Goss took 1st with a 52.6 pound wahoo, pizza man Joey G. took 2nd with a 50.4 pound yellowfin tuna (I told you Joe), and Gary Rogers took 3rd with a 40.2 pound yellowfin tuna. An Honorable mention goes out to Steve Lowe for his 56.4 pound wahoo he caught on the troll.
Today we left with our good friend George Davis and his group of dudes on a 14 day trip. Yup, a glory run going down down down. Our bait was fair and seems to be swimming in circles in the tanks and not dying off so that's good. We rigged up our rods and reels today taking our time because we have some time with some travel days ahead of us. We haven't had a true departure travel day for a long time now and I have to say it's nice not being in a rush to get everything done at once. There were some movies played today and a lot of sleep going down in the staterooms. Chef Shawn put out a nice little Sushimi snack that went down quick. Tomorrow we'll do our tackle fishing seminar for Wahoo after breakfast and then I'm sure there will be more movies and naps in everyones future. Travel days are nice. Can you say 1492 and Titos ! See ya.
P.S. We may loose satellite phone service on Wednesday and if we do we will try to keep you updated through Susan via the Radio and have her type up the reports and email them out.
P.S.S. If you have received this email directly from the boat the guys have asked me to put you on the email list. You now have the boats direct email and you may send the boys emails. Girls please be careful what you say the crew and I will be able to read what you put out.
Thanks for tuning in Tommy.
Today was not a bad day at all. We tailed it. The yellowtail bit a little. We fished a fun little pinnacle rock most of today. Conditions weren't perfect for drifting today. For starters it was windy as heck here last night and yesterday. We didn't see any of that because we weren't here but we got some of the after effects of it. We had no wind at all yet we were rolling our pa toots off for the first couple hours of the morning. Because we had no wind we were drifting with the current so it made fishing that spot difficult. The fish wanted to be right on the edge of it and we would end up drifting right on top of the pinnacle and we were losing a lot of the fish we would hook. The simple solution would be to anchor up off the edge but we tried that and the fish wouldn't bite on the anchor. So it was really good fishing but landing them was tough but we were still able to land plenty.
After lunch things straightened out and we were able to make a few good drifts but then I watched the entire school on my meter swim to the deeps and vanish. After that we couldn't find the fish on that spot anymore. They swam away. So we looked else where and we were unsuccessful at finding any more yellers. That was fine though. We still caught plenty today. It was a good day.
Tomorrow we're going to finish the trip off looking to top off on dorado. If we can get it done early enough we may have some time to try for some more yellows. Otherwise we'll just be rolling on home after wards.
Come fishing on our Seeker 1.5 day trip leaving tomorrow!
Some of the most incredible surface action I have seen!
We have been landing some quality Bluefin Tuna. However they have been making us work for them.
Brief windows of opportunity’s throughout the day are keeping everyone on their toes. Overall a tough day.
Hopefully they want to bite better soon!
