A little bit of a slower day out here for us.
We started our morning off all alone where we saw a few big schools late afternoon yesterday figuring we'd for sure be in them. Un touched schools didn't make them bite any better. We fished and caught a few in the same zoneish that we've been fishing before looking elsewhere for something fresh. We ended right back where we'd been and saw the same thing. Big schools that don't bite well. We managed a few more of the 60-80 pound grade and a few handfuls of the 25-40 pound grade and some more 18-25 pound yellowfin before it got dark on us. The weather all day was nice and we're headed back in now with fillet mignon coming up shortly. I hope I made this trip sound fun because that's what it was. We were drifting 75 percent of the time with a chance any second for a bite. Thanks to Paul and the gang. We always have fun together.
Well, our best fishing today came from the zone where all of our offshore fishing has been this year. No surprise there. I wish we would have stayed in that zone longer, but for the past week, anyone on there last day of there trip has been complaining about there speed going up. "Oh it's soo slow", "we're driving through mud", "make sure you give yourself plenty of extra time", etcetera, etcetera. So we planned on that. We fished with our watch today. But that never happened. We never did slow down. Unfortunately, by planning on it, it put us in this years desert zone. The zone with no fish. Beautiful water, no fish. But things have to change right? Right. Just not today. Oh well. At least our first 2 days were good ones. Oh, and the weather was good. That always helps.
We'll be in tomorrow and Tommy will be coming back out for 5. I'm going home. What will I do? Spend every minute with my beautiful daughter except for the 4 1/2 hours spent on the golf course. I will miss writing to you folks though. I enjoy telling you what's on my mind. I sugar coat nothing. See you all in 5 days.
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.
We started our day today offshore tuna fishing. We were staying pretty steady jiggin em up. Onesie twosie for a few hours. We weren't seeing any volume though. Just handfuls of fish around here and there. No schools. The fish were also on the smaller side of things. We could've made a day out of it and ended up with a decent catch but the fish were on the smaller side of things. 8-12 pound yellowfin tuna and that's just not what we were looking for. So we decided to wind in the jigs and v line it down to the yellowtail grounds with the hopes of a sea bass mixed in.
The yellowtail grounds were very poor. There were two of us looking around there and we had a combined score of 0. Mr. Pfleger did get a white sea bass so we were stoked. Fish tacos in a couple days.
The weather today was fantastic and the forecast shows good weather for the rest of the week too so that's always good news. We're going to stick with the plan and go look for White Sea Bass tomorrow in some White Sea Bassy water. The ribs are smelling good so I gotta go.
We found some action early this morning on a kelp with some yellowtails. Mark found it but I don't think I can give him credit for it. "twelve oclock, a trash can lid. Oh I lost it. oh nine o'clock. ile in a half. No, half mile. Two trash can lids. Oh I lost it". The second time he lost it he looked ion the wrong side of the boat so i found it and it was a good sized kelp. Oh Mark. Anyhow, everyone on the boat got to pull and tug on a little yeller and tag one or two if they chose. We hit it a couple times before getting in tuna mode. Things looked very similar to yesterday. Many spots of yellowfin around, just no meat to it. I'm talking 6-12 fish schools mostly and they weren't very interested in us.We worked very hard for just a handful of fish. The good news is it wasn't boring as I think I mentioned last night. The fish kept us on our toes. Good sight seeing. Good fishing, bad catching. Oh well. We still had a good time out here on our first trip of the year and we have our passengers to thank.
Please excuse the spelling. I'm sitting back in my chair as I write this and the letters on the screen are to small to see and the E on this keyboard keeps falling off. We'll get everything under control real soon.
