As I write this, it's the morning of the 14th. When I was awakened for my watch and day at 3:05 this morning I couldn't tell if we were running or if we were anchored up in the bay. You can't really hear the engines from where I sleep but I couldn't tell from the ride because it was so nice going up last night. I seriously asked Tommy as he was still up reading.
The fishing slowed down for us today as fishing does from time to time. The bluefin didn't bite as well this morning nor did the yellowfin. There was still yellowfin to catch this morning and there were some good scores had in the afternoon away from the bluefin zone but we caught enough yellowfin yesterday and hung out in the bluefin zone for a chance at some more of those trophies in the afternoon/evening. We still had a decent morning. I mean we still caught 14 nice bluefin and some yellowfin, but the bf's never made it back around for the afternoon snack fest. We had a great trip and will be off loading a nice catch tomorrow morning at 6:00 and turning right back around shortly after that for 5 days.
One thing I forgot to mention yesterday was the amount of these toad bluefin being caught on jigs. More then I have ever seen ratio wise but that could also be because more people were doing it but that could be because it was working well. The shimano butterfly jig is the jig that caught most of our jig fish. But that could be because that's what most people were using but that could be because it was working so well. And 90+ percent of those were caught on the sink. No retrieve necessary except to bring it up to sink back down. They loved it. So if I were coming out this year I would throw a couple of those in my box.
PS- Shimano gave me nothing to write that last paragraph. It just worked.
