Here we go again. Arrive/depart today. Off with the old, out with the new. 5 days. That's how long we have on this one. 5 days. Weather forecast looks terrific for at least the next few days so that's wonderful. We have another first for me this trip. Before this trip I have never loaded up with straight mackerel for bait. Other than the last trip but that was a 1.5 day trip. This is long range. Straight mackerel. That's 3 top tanks, and 2 big slammers full below deck. All full of mackerel. So this will be interesting. It looks like great yellowtail bait. Not great for chumming but great for catching the yellows, and I'm sure the bluefin will eat them too, just not as well as the sardine. Oh well. It is what it is. We'll just make lemonade, that's all.
So to start things off tomorrow we will be fishing for those yellowtails. And most likely, we'll be doing that for the next couple of days before getting in the hunt for the blues. Action. We want action. Wish us luck.
Captain Aliyar checked in with this report today:
19 Bluefin Tuna in the 80-120 lb. range. Few openings left this month, get booked now, so you don't miss out.April has 8 openings on if you want to come on that and then we have some open a day and half for the trip. So you guys want to come fishing give Lindsay a call 619-736-3420 going to help you out with any questions. You have any light or you can go on a Polaris Supreme TR4 schedule. So good sign of fish. We'd love to have you out there, but we'll see you on the list.
Today was just slow. There is no way to sugar coat it so I won't try. The wrong kelps had no fish, the right kelps had no fish. We had a pretty good spread of boats working it with us too but it was a no go. We gave up on the offshore thing in the afternoon and tried to salvage a day at an Island but it didn't work out. Poor sign of fish with a great sign of seal.
We're going to regroup and try again tomorrow. We're thinking a nice nights sleep on anchor should do the trick. Hopefully I have some good news for you tomorrow.
The guys are out at the islands with just 11 anglers this morning. They have 30+ yellowtail so far with lots of fishing time left. Capt Matt suggests a 20 or 25 lb bait rod a 40 lb yo-yo rod and your favorite jigstick and bass rod.
Fishing reports for jd are updated each week, usually by Thursday morning. The reports are compiled by an outside contractor who receives the information from bait shops, marinas and fishing guides.
