We had a great morning today. I'd have to check with the big guy but I believe we had around 60 of the 15-25 pound yellowfin and 9 of those big 60-80 pound bluefins on our first drift. I'd call that a good morning. It wasn't full speed either. It was just a nice scratch over a period of a few hours. Nice drifting along there in beautiful weather once again. I sure hope this weather lasts a while along with the fishing.
After our first drift we did some others of course. None producing as well as the first one but throughout the day we scratched at some more yellowfin and a few more of those big bluefins. It was just what we needed after a day of mostly driving around seing a lot and not catching much. Needless to say we'll be hanging around here tonight and trying it again tomorrow.
On a sad note, one of the greats in the sportfishing industry passed away today. Most of you reading this wouldn't know who I'm talking about because he was a behind the scenes guy. I'm talking about the great sardine fisherman Joe Machado, and if you've been fishing in the last 35+ years, you were using bait most likely caught or found by him. As you all know, no bait no fish, so we'll be throwing some sardines over the side for him tomoorow. RIP Joe.

Hi friends. The boat arrived this morning from the Let's Talk Hook-Up 4-day trip this morning at 0830 hours and by 1200 hours, we shoved off the docks with Joe Beck and friends for the annual Bob Vance/Joe Beck 5-day trip. Big fish honors from last trip went to Rudy V. with a 50.2 lb. yellowfin tuna. Way to go, Rudy. Way to give a hundred and ten percent. Anyhow, we cleared the point this afternoon with a load of bait that looks like a sardine civil war broke out a few days prior and we're transporting the wounded to a secure location to be euthanized. Ugh. We'll be closely monitoring their health and we'll see how they swim throughout the trip. For now, it's still alive. Yaaay! To quote deckhand Jed Scott, "It is what it is."
So that is all. We'll be on the hunt for tuna and other various kelp related species of size for day one of the trip. We'll be in the zone at first light and we'll report back to you tomorrow. Later.

We arrived at Hurricane Bank at 4pm and started fishing. The seven anglers on board landed 29 wahoo by dusk. After dinner they went back out for an evening bite that lasted until 3am and picked up 27 tuna ranging from 90 - 198 lbs. Three that were estimated over 200 lbs were lost. There is lots of life around here and our weather is really great. Richie is keeping a detailed daily log and will post it when we start back home.
Thanks for checking in!
