We started our day today offshore tuna fishing. We were staying pretty steady jiggin em up. Onesie twosie for a few hours. We weren't seeing any volume though. Just handfuls of fish around here and there. No schools. The fish were also on the smaller side of things. We could've made a day out of it and ended up with a decent catch but the fish were on the smaller side of things. 8-12 pound yellowfin tuna and that's just not what we were looking for. So we decided to wind in the jigs and v line it down to the yellowtail grounds with the hopes of a sea bass mixed in.
The yellowtail grounds were very poor. There were two of us looking around there and we had a combined score of 0. Mr. Pfleger did get a white sea bass so we were stoked. Fish tacos in a couple days.
The weather today was fantastic and the forecast shows good weather for the rest of the week too so that's always good news. We're going to stick with the plan and go look for White Sea Bass tomorrow in some White Sea Bassy water. The ribs are smelling good so I gotta go.
So we fished today on our open party 1.5 day trip. What a morning. We got on a school early. In the dark. I saw them on the sonar, then stopped, then looked out the window and there they were, swimming around under the lights. So I dropped a bait in the water and a minute later I had a tuna on board. So I woke up the crew and the passengers and we commenced fishing. Before the sun came up we were finished. I mean we had our daily limit of yellowfin so we passed the school off to another boat and moved on. The reason we were able to get it done so quickly this morning was because the fish were small. Unfortunately that's what the plan was all along. The good grade tuna schools are missing here in 3 day range at the moment. we've seen this before. It's no surprise during a tuna season. I don't believe it's over. Just temporarily down.
So we wanted to get our tuna out of the way early and then concentrate on finding dorado kelps, but we never found too much for dorado kelps. The wind blew too. It was perfect weather this morning, but by lunch it was blowing a good 25 knots. Not comfortable. Thing went back down though. It didn't stay windy. It's nice now.
We get in tomorrow and we're going to take a couple of days off so we'll see you when we see you. And by that I mean write and read.

Hey everybody. More of the same today. Lots of sanding and grinding as we prepare for painting next week. The five of us have worked from 0700 hours until 1600 hours for the past two days and the weekend forecast calls for more of the same. No rest for the wicked, I guess. Anyhow, I'll update you all with some photos this weekend and you can see just a glimpse of what we've been up to.
Injury of the day: Boat-work always has a high level of danger involved, especially with being twenty feet in the air, scaffolding surrounding the boat, electrical chords running wild and very dangerous equipment in our hands. It's a very stressful situation and accidents do happen and today, one did. Jed got stung by a bee.
Chat with you tomorrow.
