I'm pretty sure there are no yellowtail on this side of the Island. If there were, we would have seen them. This place was very lively this morning. Pretty much, everywhere we looked, there was good bait and bird sign. I'm sure if there were any yellows around they would have made a showing. We stayed in the best area for hours, drifting for groupers and halibut and what ever else would bite our lines hoping to see those yellows pop up but they never did. They weren't around here. Unfortunately, we couldn't look anywhere else because the weather was no good. It was fine where we were. A strong wind but the swell was blocked by the Island.
So we're just sitting here now waiting for the wind to back off above here. We're messing around catching bass. The wind pretty much went away in the lee here. Hopefully that's a sign things are backing off up above here. We should be on our way home around midnight. Our weather program shows very tolerable weather then.
25 bluefin. Managed to keep a couple schools around the boat today and pick at them. A bait fished on 30lb flouro with a size 2-1/0 hook got most of our bites.
We didn't start fishing today till around 2:00 in the afternoon. Before that we traveled up in very cool dirty looking fishless water as we expected. Everyone slept in and chilled out while the crew did some maintenence on the boat and did some repairs on monday details. After the boat was in tip top shape we ate fish tacos and got ready to fish. We didn't find any wide open yellowtail fishing but we scrached out an afternoon. We caught 3 a round on mostly good grade yellowtails with a few cows mixed in. 35 pounders is about what they were. So we're traveling up now in good weather to the yellowfin/dorado grounds. We could use a top off on some yellowfin and we can use some more dorado and then we'll have most of a day to fish for the bluefin before we head for home.
Caught a few nice Bluefin right as our time expired.
