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.
Caught a few nice Bluefin right as our time expired.
The San Diego out of Seaforth Landing in San Diego,CA checked in with us today:
Besides the air temperature it almost felt like summer today. Hopscotched schools of yellowtail all day long. Ended up with 102 yellowtail from 12-20lbs. Yo-yo jigs and dropper looped sardines worked best.
Captain Andrew Viola called in late last night at 11:15 PM. We just wrapped up an overnight charter. It was a tough morning the fish slept in. The fish showed up later in the day and we managed 3 Bluefin Tuna (up to 120 pounds). It was a very encouraging sign of fish once we got on them.
We had a 2 day Izorline trip tonight and we have a SOLD OUT trip departing Friday night.

Hi friends. Tough day for us here on the high seas. No sugar-coating anything today, it was a slow day. We saw multiple good schools of yellowfin but Tropical Storm John really has things screwed up down here. We only managed a few handfuls of yellowfin in the 12-35 lb. category along with a couple of nice bluefin and a few various bottom dwellers for our final tally. Like I said, no shortage of fish running around but they are just not cooperating all that well.
We're hoping for a banner day tomorrow as the weather is supposed to straighten out and be flat calm and sick hot. I was a hot little potato today even though it was rather windy and choppy. We can only hope tomorrow that it snows or something because it is going to be a scorcher. Bronzing isn't even an appropriate word for what we did today, we got down-rite ethnic with our tans today. My goodness it was hot. Speaking of hot, our team in the galley is hot. Schooler and Shawn, aka "The Dream Team" are just magnificent. Along with the world's greatest deckhand, they really are the heart and soul of this operation and I feel that it is a pleasure to not only be worthy enough to eat their creations but to also know them as people. Thank you, Schooler and Shawn, thank you for making my life so wonderful and all of the passengers too. You're so dandy and thanks for getting us fat.
Anyhow, our fingers are crossed for tomorrow and yours should be too. Pray for snow and lots of tuna. See ya.
