We had a bumpy ride last night. It was windy. So we didn't make the best of speed which translates to not having a whole lot of time to fish our last day when we were coming from so far away. We found our edge pretty quick after daylight and we were getting a few strikes on small tuna but like I said, we didn't have a lot of time to fish it. We were able to follow it up the line for a couple of hours getting the occasional strike before we had to call it a day and call it a trip.
The weather has been getting progressively nicer throughout the day and now we have a pretty darn good ride. Everyone is doing what you do on travel days. We had a nice fish taco lunch and last time I was in the galley the passengers were taking it way back and were watching the 90's classic "Deep Color" movie staring Tommy Rothery and the Polaris Supreme.
We'll be in bright and early tomorrow and we're going to be turning back around on another 5 day trip. Tommy will be going home and I'll be taking her out. Gunny is hanging in there strong like the Marine he is and we're hoping he'll be back within a month.
Sunday night we spent the day targeting trophy bluefin with tall of the boys from fish 101 restaurant. We had some very good opportunities through out the day. Landing 12 fish biggest was right at 300lbs then closely followed by a beautiful 275lber and the rest where in the 60-80 lb range.
Today we fished yellowfin tuna. Fishing was good, when the dust settled we had 113 fish in the hole all being 12-18 pound fish. We did also see a couple nice schools of bluefin but didn’t not hook any unfortunately. Back out tonight !
The big tuna are around and close! Be sure to have 80- 100lb gear ready with 130 LB leader so you land your fish of a lifetime!
The last 1.5 Day produced this 190 lb beauty!
The Tribute finished yesterday with 57 Yellowfin Tuna and 28 Bluefin Tuna for our 20 Angler’s on board. It was ridiculously nice weather!
