We had a slow day today. The morning seemed promising. We caught a little but we saw a whole lot. If just one of those schools we saw this morning wanted to bite a little we would of had a great day. That seems to be the deal this year though. Today, we hit the wrong schools. We caught about 20 ish this morning from 30-50 pounds. The afternoon stunk. We ran in to where we finished up last night and it was muerto. We ended up in an area late that had mucho fish but unfortunately they were all small. We didn't even try them. It wasn't worth wasting our precious sardine for.
The good news about not catching much fish this afternoon is we still have some of a tank of sardine left to fish with this morning. It's 4:00 AM as I write this and we just finished up with our attempt at bait making. We caught plenty of bait, but it wasn't a good size for the tuna that's out here so we're going to try and make some lemonade here. We're going to take our big spanish mackerel and take it to where the 150+ pound bluefin live. We'll do this after we run out of sardine this morning. No one has tried that cow BF with a couple tanks of spanish yet. Maybe that's the key to it all.
The weather remains great. We had a few hours this afternoon where things were getting interesting. We had a descently strong wind out of the southeast and with it came some rain. It wasn't all that neat but it didn't last long. Things went back to butter. Nice.
