We fished hard today. It felt like a kind of slow day but when you look at our tally it shows we had a good day. We just never got steady more than a couple of drifts. We'd stop and get a handful and then have to go again. Other than a few hour long drifts that is. But at the end of the day, when only half the people were fishing and I had a yellowtail to give away because the angler who caught it had his limit already and nobody handed me over a tag, I knew it was a good day.
Things didn't start off so hot though Nope. I knew our bait was dying but I thought we were good for another day of fishing before it would croak. I was wrong. "Red Boy". The sardines were red. Most were either floating belly up or lying at the bottom of the tank. We made it through though. We worked hard and had a good day. The yellows were nice ones too. 20-25 pounds in the morning and 14-25 pounds in the afternoon.
The weather through here was great today. I'm not sure we've had one day at this Island this year where the wind wasn't ripping through the south end where we've been fishing. Now we have one and it looks like it will remain true tomorrow as well. We saved one tank of bait from last trip. I knew the first morning we may not have any survivors for our last day if we didn't save our one tank of good bait. Hopefully we find something to use it on. I know we'll be making horrific speed coming up so we won't have any time to "work" an area. We just have to pick a course and hope for the best. See ya.
The Pacifica checked in this afternoon with an audio update from offshore. We have limits of Yellowfin Tuna and 4 Bluefin Tuna.
We have plenty of room on our 1.5 day trip leaving Monday night and other 1.5 and overnight trips throughout the week. We also have a full day trip Sunday at 5:30 AM.
Bring your 20# and 15# sticks with fluorocarbon and small flat falls.
