There really isn't much to report today.. We didn't fish. We traveled all day. We chose to fish later last night in the windless lee of Cedros catching yellows, tuna, and seabass instead of going offshore in the wind/swell and most likely catching nothing or small tuna. I think we made the right choice. We had a bit of a bumpy ride last night, or so I'm told. As usual I slept through it. We were almost to the coast when I woke up for my watch, so things were a lot smoother. So today we slept in and had a late breakfast of biscuits and gravy. The crew got our scrub on while the customers read, hung out and played poker. After lunch, on cue, most of the boat took a nice nap. Now dinner is at it's end and my watch is almost over and I'm ready for bed.
We'll be arriving tomorrow at 6:00 in the morning. We should have a fairly quick turn around and we'll be back out again, this time for 4. I'll be taking her out and I'm not sure where we'll go yet. Fishing right now is at that stage where things need to and will change very soon. We just hope we're in the right place when they do.
Once again, we left today, Friday to spend our weekend on the sea. For 1.5 days. Friday-Sunday. We have bait, and we're headed out. One big tank of chovy, and 2 tanks of dine. We're hoping to put them to good use. We're headed out. I feel OK about leaving my daught for her first dress up Halloween. I got to see her in her lady bug costume and try and trick or treat it up at my wifes work. So here we go.
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?
