Not a very good day for us today. I wish I could call it a travel day too but we did a lot of fishing, just not catching. Well, we did need to travel for 4 hours of the day to put us in position for tomorrow, so maybe I can call it a travel day. Anyways, the weather today was pretty crappy when I first woke up and not much better when we arrived to our first fishing destination of the day at 7:00 AM. That could be why the wahoo weren't there and biting. But after 3 hours there, the weather was nice. The wind backed off and the ocean flattened out. Unfortunately 12 miles below there the current did a 180 and the wind picked up a little and things got jacked up. The swell and chop were coming from every which way and we couldn't pick a smooth course. We got our roll on for most the rest of the day. Spot #2 looked like we could've caught a bunch of nice yellers but the skip jack wouldn't let us have any of it. They were hitting everything we threw in. That's alright though. We needed the chunk for tomorrow. We did get a few nice yellows though.
After that we had a delicious cheeseburger and some took a nap during our 20 mile move. I had high hopes for this place but it was not to be so we threw in the towel a bit before dark to make sure we give ourselves plenty of time to get to our next destination. We'll be hunting for cows tomorrow. We need a little luck and by that I mean good timing. The fish need to be on the bank tomorrow for us because above here didn't seem like the answer for the last couple of days.
Mama Bear: Though we only caught a few wahoo today, your little rascal caught one of them. His first wahoo. I guess the ritual for that is a deck hose soaking? I never heard of that but he got a drenching after that one.
34 pass 170 yellowfin tuna (limits) 17 dorado. Flyline baits, colt snipers and small Flatfalls.
From 8:00 am till 4:00 pm we were either stopped on bluefin or driving towards jumping bluefin. When we pumped out the RSW we had 17 bluefin and 2 yellowtail. Flylined sardines on 25-40 lb with a size 2-2/0 bait hook was the top producer.
Good evening folks. We departed today after a very fast turn around on an 8 day trip. I'm back after 2 nights rest and ready to get back at it with Tommy at the helm. Good weather today along with good food, company, seminars, naps and just good old fashion relaxation mixed with anticipation. We're ready to go here. We're ready to get into battle mode. What we'll be battling is yet to be determined at this point in the night. We're still figuring out where we want to start this journey of long range sportfishing.
32 large bonito today. Weather is keeping us tied to the dock for a few days. Next available trip is Friday. Make those reservations.
