We had a pretty good day today. We were due in the zone at 8:40 AM but we didn't make that ETA. We got caught up in a stop a few miles prior that bit pretty well for us. Then we spent maybe too much time in that zone looking for another deal that never came. So we mosied on down and found another little zone which gave us our best stop of the day. That was a good stop. We caught a couple tuna reaching close to 40 pounds on that one. And then the life pretty much disappeared until late. So from lunch until 5 or so we didn't catch anything. Then wouldn't you know it, before dark we started seeing life again and stopping the boat and catching fish again. I guarantee you us catching fish right before dark and nothing since lunch wasn't a coincidence. The fish were down hanging low where we couldn't see them and came up late. All and all it was a good day. A nice little starter for our 10 day trip. 15-25 pound yellowfin mostly with a few we let go and some nearing 40.
The weather held up for us today too. It got a little breezy in the afternoon but then it came down late again. We're heading down tonight and we're going to try our hand at some yellers tomorrow morning and take it from there. We're hoping we get a weather window in the morning. It looks like we should but the wind should be with us tomorrow night on through hopefully only the next day.
I'm supposed to let mama bear know that your forever cub is kicking butt. He got himself a nice one and plenty others today. He won't stop yappin about how much he loves and misses his mommy though. Frankly, we're getting tired of hearing it.
