Often times the very FIRST piece of the puzzle is the most difficult to locate. Today we stopped on multiple small schools of yellowtail that were surprisingly hard to hook. Full size yo-yo jigs on 40 lb mono produced the first 2 yellowtail of our season. We also spent a couple hours fishing the bottom to assure everyone had plenty of white meat. We’re hoping this is just the tip of the iceberg. Make those resos !
Well, we got our tail on today. We started up there and caught a few, then we went there and had a couple of real nice drifts. Good tailing on medium sized yellows. We'll call them 12-14 pounders with a few smaller and a some in the 16 pound range. We were completely OK with them. I spent my whole time there in the pit with my butt in the air stapling tags on the customers fish while the rest of the crew were gaffing. After a couple good drifts, and I mean good ones, the fish stopped biting. No one knows why, they just quit biting so we had to make a move again. Now if I had remembered there was a Charger game on at that moment it would've been a great time to listen to it being we were making a 3 hour move. But I forgot all about it. I was too busy thinking of our next move and the future moves of this trip. It was a good game too. If you weren't paying attention we beat the 2014 super bowl champs. !0 point under dogs. Beat them up. That's right Seattle. Look out nation.
We didn't catch much when we arrived to our new hot zone. A couple of handfuls of nice yellowtails and then it got dark so now we sit on anchor. We can safely fish one more day here before the storm pushes us out of here. Which direction we'll go? I'm not sure yet.
Today was an enjoyable day out here in the old west. We didn't catch much fish, but we still had a good time. I take that back, we didn't keep much fish. We started this morning in a little zone, and it was full speed jiggin um up. Stop and go, stop and go, stop and go. Mostly small yellowfin unfortunately.. There was a sprinkling of good ones in the mix along with some nice yellowtaiil, and it sort of felt like any minute we'd find that school of good ones, but it also kind of felt like we were in the wrong zone at the same time. Funny how that works.
By mid morning we were out of there. We made a move up to the next break. The fishing wasn't very good for us up there, but the weather all day was excellent, and when you have a boat full of friends aboard, you can't miss. We did see some cool wild life. There was a pod of, must of been 10 not sure what kind of whales that swam across the bow. Nobody else saw, but I saw all of them at once breeching when they were about a mile or so off. We also ran across a couple pods of Orcas too. With these we cruised for a while along side of them and checked out the Shamus of the wild. It was some good viewing let me tell you.
About an hour before dark, only 7 miles away, a boat got on a school of the better grade tuna and caught a bunch. Unfortunately for us, we didn't connect before dark more than a half dozen of these but we know where to be tomorrow and we're confident we'll get a bunch.
Yellowtail fishing fell on its face today we had about 1 around. But we managed to keep busy have fun and catch some killer table fair. Thats right Rock Cod. You should see the rock cod fishing we had, it was pretty darn good. We where lucky the yellowtail and the Rock cod grounds are one in the same and we could do both while waiting for the yellows to bite. The lings and reds made up most of our catch today. All of us are looking forward to dinner tonight, it is going to be fresh tuna we caught a few days ago. We will be back in the tuna grounds tomorrow to finish off our trip. Tommy and Crew.
