Well, our best fishing today came from the zone where all of our offshore fishing has been this year. No surprise there. I wish we would have stayed in that zone longer, but for the past week, anyone on there last day of there trip has been complaining about there speed going up. "Oh it's soo slow", "we're driving through mud", "make sure you give yourself plenty of extra time", etcetera, etcetera. So we planned on that. We fished with our watch today. But that never happened. We never did slow down. Unfortunately, by planning on it, it put us in this years desert zone. The zone with no fish. Beautiful water, no fish. But things have to change right? Right. Just not today. Oh well. At least our first 2 days were good ones. Oh, and the weather was good. That always helps.
We'll be in tomorrow and Tommy will be coming back out for 5. I'm going home. What will I do? Spend every minute with my beautiful daughter except for the 4 1/2 hours spent on the golf course. I will miss writing to you folks though. I enjoy telling you what's on my mind. I sugar coat nothing. See you all in 5 days.
We finished up our trip today hunting bluefin. They weren't very friendly today. In fact they were down right mean. We saw a tremendous amount of fish today but very few would bite our lines. All day long we were stopping on schools and we have 22 fish to show for it. All of them were nice ones with the biggest going about 60 pounds. !st and 2nd will be easy, figuring out 3rd place in the jackpot may take a while. Alot of 45 pounders to weigh I think.
We're headed in. Tommy's taking the next one out, and I'll be on board.
29 Yellowfin Tuna, 38 Dorado, 33 Skipjack and 77 Yellowtail. Ernie Escalante with one of our nice Dorado from today.
I forgot to mention yesterday how steamy it is down here. Steamy, like we're boiling a giant pot of water or something, I can't explain it. Anyways when you walk out of an air and conditioned part of the boat it's like POW! Holy Toledo! But after a little bit you get used to it and it's not that bad until you find some AC again and then come back out and it's like, POW again. Anyways, we had a little more wind this morning which helped with the kite fishing and it stayed one direction which helped with the anchor fishing. We had another decent morning. George caught another over 200 and his bud Craig joined him with a 207. The sharks weren't as ferocious this morning and this afternoon I'd have to say they weren't much of a problem at all. We really did a number on the wahoo yesterday because today we only caught a few but thankfully we had a great day on the anchor starting mid morning or after lunch, I already can't remember.
The boxed and vacuum sealed flying fish from Florida the gang brought down really paid off today. That's mostly what I did this afternoon was rig flying fish for the kite and help gaff tuna when they needed me. For a couple hours they were hitting the baits on the kite as fast as we could put them out. Most of what we're catching is in the 100-130 pound class. The big story was Charlie this afternoon. He caught 3 bigguns. A 194, 213, and a 204. A nice afternoon for Charlie. About half the gang are already releasing anything under 200 pounds.
For dinner we had a lovely corned beef and cabbage and potato meal. Afterwards I was waiting for the shower and i noticed all the tuna that was under the boat and I pointed it out to the chef. So he went down there and sinker rigged a sardine right on top of one of the tunas heads and he got himself a 177 pounder shattering his previous personal best of 35 pounds. Way to go Mike. Most people at the time were tying on new top shots on there reels. They all new what was going on and that they could most likely do the same but nobody did a thing. Everyone was fished out so that shows we had a good day. You just can't fish 24 hours a day.
