Long range fishing. We're back. We departed today on a wonderful 10 day trip. An ultra limited load 10 day trip. A fisherman's dream. We got some bait. We loaded up on half 6-8 inch beauts, and then half 4-6 inchers that will chum well and fish well enough. The weather right now couldn't be better. We're just rolling down hill enjoying life. We got some rest and did part 1 of our 3 part seminars. We did that today because we're fishing tomorrow morning. It's been pretty darn good school grade tuna fishing where we'll be in the morning lately, and we're going to try and get a starter kit tomorrow. We're just hoping the fore casted wind will hold up long enough for that. Yup, the wind is coming and it doesn't look like it's going to be very nice for the next few days. Oh well. It is what it is. We'll be doing some traveling through it on a downhill course but it's going to end up effecting some of our early fishing conditions for sure. But then it goes away and becomes lovely again for hopefully the rest of the trip. I'm looking forward to writing to you folks out there the next 10 days. I hope I have nothing but good things to write. Time will tell.
Good evening everyone and happy Halloween. Things didn't fair too well for us this morning at last weekends hot tuna spot. You can tell it was a week closer to November because there were only 4 of us there compared to 15 of us there last week. Anyways, like I said, things didn't fair too well for us there. That doesn't mean the tuna weren't there though. At least one of the boats there did well today. We didn't have the patience for it today though. At least not for the veal grade, so we took off at lunch time. We took off in search of dorado. And wouldn't you know it, things worked out. We found three productive kelps this afternoon. The last kelp almost being a fixer upper. So it worked out. We had a good day. 130+ fish day. That'll do.
So we'll be in for the week, and we're going to come back out here again next Friday. We're going to bring along with us the Inside Sportfishing crew. They want to do an episode so if that sounds like something you may be interested in, we'd love to have you. And then after that we leave on a 10 day. So if that sounds like something you may be interested in, we loved to have you then as well.
Last minute trip cancellation just opened up one spot on our Guadalupe 6 day coming up! Jump on before someone else does!
Sien On and his charter group got a quick shot in the bottom of the ninth. They landed 31 yellowfin 8 yellowtail 2 bonito. A small hook and 20lb fluorocarbon got most of the bites.
We had a bumpy ride last night. It was windy. So we didn't make the best of speed which translates to not having a whole lot of time to fish our last day when we were coming from so far away. We found our edge pretty quick after daylight and we were getting a few strikes on small tuna but like I said, we didn't have a lot of time to fish it. We were able to follow it up the line for a couple of hours getting the occasional strike before we had to call it a day and call it a trip.
The weather has been getting progressively nicer throughout the day and now we have a pretty darn good ride. Everyone is doing what you do on travel days. We had a nice fish taco lunch and last time I was in the galley the passengers were taking it way back and were watching the 90's classic "Deep Color" movie staring Tommy Rothery and the Polaris Supreme.
We'll be in bright and early tomorrow and we're going to be turning back around on another 5 day trip. Tommy will be going home and I'll be taking her out. Gunny is hanging in there strong like the Marine he is and we're hoping he'll be back within a month.
