We fished today with all our buds. Obviously it was the best game in town. We had boats from San Diego up to Ventura all nestled in sharing the same honey hole. 15 of us to be exact. It all worked out though. It was a nice spread of fish. Everyone was able to scratch. Scratch, scratch, scratch. From after daylight until after lunch. Then things went dead for the most part, so we pulled anchor and found a nice school to drift on. After a long drift the day was pretty much over. We drove around, made another anchor job but the fish were done. Just like us. We're done for the week. It's up to you whether or not we fish this next up coming weekend. Halloween weekend. See you there?
Oh, the fish today were tuna. Yellowfin. Smaller. We had a couple handfuls of 30-40 pounders first thing, but as soon as the current picked up, for some reason the bigguns split. So we stayed busy with the smaller ones. Veal. Oh, and they found sardine again. Loaded up. So don't worry 10 dayers.
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.
Well today was just dandy. I got out of the office today for several hours and it was neat. We got to where we wanted to be at 10:00 this morning and for 5 hours we had very good yellowtail fishing on just a beautiful grade. 18-25 pounds is what they were and they were snapping. It's just what we needed. A stopped boat with bent rods and excited passengers and crew. After that we were successful at getting bait and I was told by a few of the passengers that even that was a blast. Anyways it's safe to say that we are stoked. A load of fish and plenty of bait to use on tuna the rest of the trip. I want to take back my hole stupid time machine comment I made yesterday. I think our timing will be perfect. There's some big bluefin being had up above. Fish up to 150 pounds have been caught and that wasn't happening the beginning part of this trip. We're doing alright. The weather today was yet again just fantastic. We may experience some bump tomorrow though and it should come down for our last couple days.
