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.

Today we had about 7-10 wahoo and several tuna. Four nice ones around 170 lbs., and some smaller ones (many released) 50-60 lbs. We lost 4 nice ones, 2 thought to be over 200 lbs. The guys are pretty tired putting in 36 hours of fishing time. Most only had 3-4 hours of sleep.
We had a good day. We had a great day actually. From about 8-12 it was pretty darn good fishing. We scratched before that and we scratched after that. And from 5:30 until close to dark we had very good fishing. The best of the day. Heck, I'll call it the best of the year for us. Quality and quantity. Through out the day the fish was all mixed up. !4-22 pounds. This evening I don't think I saw more than 2 fish below 16 pounds. Most were bigger then that. Like I said, we had a good day. And we did it in the wind too. All day long it was windy, windy, windy. But we didn't care. We were catching fish.
We're going to stay the night and try and get another good hit in the morning and take it from there. We may mess around up the lee of the Island or take off offshore and look for tuna. We'll play it by ear. First things first, we want a good hit.
