Today we had about as good of yellowtail fishing as you can get. Quality to quantity ratio, holy Toledo. 18-25 pound fish and they were biting pretty much as full speed as yellows bite for a couple hours and after that it slowed down but they were still biting well for a couple more. If you have read my past reports you know that surface iron fishing on big yellows is my favorite kind of fishing and it was pretty much wide open on the surface iron. Holy Toledo! I'm not the only one who felt this way either. We have a Polaris Supreme first timer on board, his name is Josh and he may love it more then me. He named his dog after a surface iron. Tady. How cool is that? We've had a tank of mackerel on board for about 3 weeks and we finally let them go today. On hooks that is before getting eaten by yellows. In the late afternoon ewe looked for bait and found some a couple hours before dark and caught a tank full of nice mackerel. We restocked our supply. We made a couple drifts along a kelp line while the sun set and tugged on a few calico bass and now we're headed up to fish tuna tomorrow. Sweet dreams.
Oh yeah, Happy Anniversary to Renee. I think you know who that's from Renee.
Arrive depart day today. We did the whole routine, I hung out with my baby for an hour and it was time to set sail again. We left on another 5 day with my buddy Archie and his gang and a few other regulars. We did well at the bait receivers. We loaded up on small sardine and left the bay and headed out to do some fishing in the afternoon. We didn't do much. A couple of yellowfin is all we caught. We did see a couple of big schools of 50-80 pound tuna that didn't care we were there at all. No bites. We're eating prime rib and heading down in nice weather. We're going to try for some yellows on the coast in the morning and then head offshore for the afternoon hunting yellowfin.
Nice bluefin making for a great starter and finisher for our 6 day trips. Next one leaves August 23rd!
