OK. So once again, we were one of the lucky boats today. Two days in a row, we're carrying the horseshoe. We had arguably our best stop of the year this morning. A month ago we had a day where we caught a larger quantity of yellowfin than we caught today and ultimately we caught more tonnage that day, but the quality/quantity of these yellowfin this morning were second to none in 2015. Holy Toledo. Same grade as yesterday. About a 25 pound average. One fish hold down. We feel blessed. It was not for everyone today unfortunately but fortunately we were one of the lucky ones.
The afternoon stunk for us though. It got very crowded in the zones that had fish and it made it tough to stay in those zones. We kept wanting to leave but we wouldn't see anything when we did so we would end up back in the crowd and that fish wouldn't bite well. It was a long afternoon but much easier to handle with one full well on board already.
The weather was great. Just like San Diego weather because that's where we were. Tomorrow we're going to be concentrating on bluefin tuna. We've caught 18 of them the last couple days and they are beautiful. We want some more. The boats that fished it this morning were not happy about it but we're hoping it was an off day today and they want to float tomorrow. Timing is everything and so far our timing has been right on. Let's keep this ball rolling.
