Captain Ryan checked in tonight with an update from the San Diego out of Seaforth Sportfishing in Mission Bay, CA. We returned late last night. Our trip today and Friday have been cancelled due to weather. Our next trip is going to be Saturday.
We had 25 anglers catch 7 Bluefin Tuna, 38 Yellowtail and 35 Bonito. We had some nice quality on the Bluefin Tuna. We had 6 Bluefin Tuna between 60 and 108 pounds. To be exact we had Bluefin Tuna weighing in at 108, 102, 90, 90, 80 and 60 pounds. We also had one small one that we caught on the troll early in the morning. There is excellent sign of big Bluefin Tuna right now.
It is very important to be prepared with the correct tackle. A Shimano Talica 12 or 16 two speed filled with 65 or 80 lb spectra. Connected to 5 feet of 80 or 130 lb flouro and a 250 gram flatfall. A sinker bait rig fished with a Talica 16 or 20 two speed filled halfway with 80 lb spectra than topped off with 60 or 80 lb mono to a short leader of 80 lb flouro. A 2/0 or 3/0 circle hook and a 4-6 oz torpedo sinker.
Please bring the correct tackle. During our last trip we had 20 hookups and got 6 of them.

Another travel day today so another day with nothing to report. I enjoyed a nice sleeping in this morning, then ate some cereal, then cleaned an engine room along with Mark and Jed. I noticed there were some movies being played and naps being had. We're going to try our hands at some squid in the early a.m. hours to give us a little more to fish with tomorrow. We're getting in the bluefin mode tomorrow for our last day before we return to San Diego.
Mr. Joe G. Yes you Joe. I am truly sad to say that tomorrow is our last chance to catch an albacore before we square up our bet. Unfortunately even if there was a miracle and we did find a biting school I don't think we could get a hundred to make you a winner in our bet so make sure you have that bill clean and crisp. I know you know but I would have loved to lose that bet. Thankfully we had the bluefin this year covering for the albacore so we were still in good shape for the summer. Fall is here and they're still biting. Timing is everything.

Just what we had hoped for! We had a really fun day on some of the bigger grade yellowfin. We landed nine fish over 100 pounds. Charlie got one at 213 lbs. and Gunnar, one of our first timers got the biggest one for the day that weighed in at 230 lbs. He did it all by himself from start to finish. And by the way, he is only eleven years old. He also landed another one that was well over 100 lbs. Our weather is fantastic. Dinner was incredible. Pedro laid out another killer sashimi and sushi appetizer and followed up with a dinner of fresh yellowtail with a Chardonnay, lemon, shallot sauce. Richie said it was probably the best fish dish he has ever had. We are hoping for another fun day tomorrow. Wish us luck. Thanks for checking in.

Today we had another awesome day of fishing. A huge variety of species including Yellowtail, Grouper, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, Pargo, and Dorado.
The Pargo we caught were off a school that was breezing on the surface. An incredible sight that was amazing to see. A patch of water was literally red with Pargo. We only caught a handful, hopefully we will be able to figure out how to catch them next time.
Slightly breezy but nice on the anchor.
Will Report again tomorrow,

What a brutally slow morning. We drove around until 2 pm. and had only
released one 190 lb., and four 50 lb. tuna. It was beginning to look
like we were going to miss. Then we found the boomer sonar school of
cows. They bit full speed, eight going at a time for two hours before
they slowed down. Here is the result of those two hours. Scott
released a 185 lb., and kept a 180 lb., 187 lb., and 231 pounder. Bob
released a 180 lb., and kept a 210 pounder. Al released a 170 lb., and
kept a 210 lb., and a 211 lb. tuna. Craig released a 170 lb. and a 185
lb. tuna. Roger kept a 160 lb., 170 lb., and 180 pounder. Sheridan
released a 180 lb., 185 lb., and kept a 187 lb. tuna. Tom released a
175 lb., 195 lb., and kept a 228 pounder. George released a 180 lb.,
190 lb., and kept a 213 pounder. So what was a bad day turned into an
awesome day in just two hours. It was so fun. We had to hang up our
jock straps and sun visors today and change into warmer apparel. It was
a little cool, breezy, and started to get choppy late. Lunch was
stuffed bell peppers with marinara sauce. Hors d'oeuvres were sushi,
sashimi and corn dogs. Dinner was New York steaks. One more day to fish.
