We fished today in the local bluefin zone. We scratched at the yellowfin and picked at the bluefin for 5 hours this morning. Scratch means we were getting a few here and there and pick means we were getting one here and there. In the morning the blues were mostly 25-45 pounds and we caught half a dozen or so 60-70 pounders. Between noon and 5:00 PM we drove around looking for fish with not much luck and we went back to the blue zone for the evening session and had a real good evening. We picked up 7 more 60-80 pounders and the yellowfin got on us a couple times and we couldn't stop catching it until after dark. One post it note I made today was BBB. It's a reminder to tell you about a regular passenger of ours by the name of Bill Byler. If you don't know Bill he is one of those loud mouth, smart mouth old retired fireman guys and he's awesome. He is a load of fun. Anyways he was hooked up onto one of those big Bluefins late today and I heard Gunny tell him his boots were on back wards. I thought it was just a joke but sure enough, his darn boots were on the wrong feet. He said he was wondering why his feet hurt so much. I never seen that before. He ended up catching 2 of those tonight.
The last couple days have been choppy out here but today it was very nice. We get in tomorrow and leave again for 4. See you then.
