The old adage “I’d rather be lucky than good” was the story for us today. Before we even fired up the Binos our autopilot found us a kelp patty that kicked out 66 yellowtail (12-25lbs). After our kelp the weather kicked up substantially making it very difficult to work. We did however see some tuna but did not get a bite. A 40 lb flyline setup was the best today.
Couple of long drifts with steady action produced 51 yellowfin tuna 96 skipjack tuna. 20 lb bait rod and a 40 lb bait rod.
And we're off again. This time for 8 days. We got a pretty good jump at things today. We cleared the point at lunch time which keeps our options open on where we can fish tomorrow and the next day. I'm still not sure where we'll be tomorrow. I may not be sure until I wake up in the morning and look at the hurricane coming up from below the cape. As it's forecasted now, it's definitely going to effect our decisions on where we'll fish this trip and when. But don't worry at home, we'll keep a safe distance from the dangerous winds at all times. Find out tomorrow where I decided to start fishing.
~~Sep. 7 "Feeling Better"
I can't say I had the highest of hopes for this morning. It seems like up and down this whole coast in the mornings has no current. As you know, no current = no fish. So we bailed on our yellowtail spot after 8:00 am and went kelping. I believe we found our first winner ohhh around 10:00 or so. It was good for 20 dorado. Another 1/2 hour later we found another that was good for another 20. Another 1/2 hour later... and so on and so on. We had a good day of kelping. Most of our passengers on board have never been in a dorado bite before today. It was jaw dropping for them. Lots of fun. We're feeling better.
Now we're going to catch our yellows. We're going to head into the coast for tomorrow and try and get a bunch of those. See? I write short reports on good days. Hopefully I keep them short.
