It was awesome yellowtailing this morning. As soon as we got to the grounds it was on and that time was dark 30. That's right. It wasn't even daylight yet and we were gettin um. Nice big fat yellows. As soon as daylight hit we were still gettin um and we kept gettin um for a few more hours too. And after that, we made a move and we were gettin um there too. So lunch time came around and Chef Shawn made yellowtail sandwiches and guess what, they were awesome. After that we worked up up up to get us in position for bluefining tomorrow. The weather coming up is not good. As I write this at the Charger halftime my legs are 6 feet apart for balance. Sometimes my butt is against the wall and I can barely reach the keyboard. The weather man is calling for better weather tomorrow. Should we believe him?
Our morning started off at 4:30. There was some good meter life on the first spot we looked at so we woke everyone up to try it and we had it figured out in the first 45 minutes. A few good grade yellows and a whole lot of smaller ones so we brought the lines in and continued down. An hour later we tried another spot for some more nice yellows but not enough so we continued down. The next spot a couple hours later was a disappointment. Not much yellowtail and not much wahoo. We got one wahoo almost to gaff before it spit the hook and swam away. So we continued down. The next spot we tried produced one beautiful wahoo and showed pretty decent sign of good grade yellowtails that didn't bite like you'd think. We caught some but it didn't keep us anchored up till sunset so we continued down. 1:30 hours later we were anchored up on our last spot of the evening and again it showed pretty good sign of yellows that bit pretty good for us up until dark. It was good enough to stay put and try it in the morning. We might of caught 1 million dorado today. I lost track at around one hundred and three but it might have been around 1 million. Unfortunately most of these dorado weren't much bigger then a neck tie and we let most go to fight another day. The weather was windy today. Wind and swell but for some reason it wasn't bad fishing weather. Maybe because our usual direction we worked was down but even when we would slide on a jig strike we never took any mean snaps. The wind came down after the sun went down so we're hoping it stays down.
Good times were had by all on the Prevost private charter. Light line live bait rigs and small colt snipers connected with 57 yellowfin tuna and 2 bluefin tuna.
Good evening everyone. We wrapped up our trip today. And it was an interesting day. First off the weather continued to produce variable wind. Flat calm and gorgeous. Onto the fishing. As you know we almost had no sardine today. We used it well though for the time we had it. The bluefin floated today. Everywhere you looked there was a 30-50 pound bluefin gently rolling on the glassy surface. Other times you would see the whole school swimming on the surface. It definitely had that feel to it. We caught 30 fish from 30-50 pounds this morning before we ran out of bait. For the time being it was great but sad when we ran out. We still had a couple tanks of big mackerel to use and Tommy had it figured out where we would use it. So we made a few hour move and it didn't take long after we arrived to the honey hole before we were gettinum. Big yellowfin. 45-65 pounders. It felt like we were anchored up at Alijos Rocks when the tuna were around there. Those fish liked our mackerel. We caught a few over 20 of those bad boys before they quit biting. I wish we could be in 2 spots at once.
So we have a 1.5 day trip leaving tomorrow afternoon Aug. 27 and we want you to go. Let me try and talk you into it. Now this is me speaking truth. Not blowing smoke at you. The weather still is fore casted to be great great. Variable wind. Now I told you we had great fishing this morning while we had bait. A lot of the boats that had just left on there trips that had bait all day drifted all day. Not all but a lot. They drifted and they caught. It's a good time to go fishing I'd say. Good grade, good fishing. Let us take you fishing, feed you great, show you a good time and hopefully the bonus, catch lots of fish.
