50+ yellowfin on the boat so far for Capt Matt and the guys.
The Tribute out of Seaforth Sportfishing in San Diego, CA returned from a 2.5 day Pelagic sponsored trip on September 2nd.
The pressure is off. We never made it down to any Island today like we planned. At about 9 am or so the sonar went clunk, clunk and we went sideways for an hour. It wasn't the best grade but it definitely wasn't the worst. It was this years middle grade. 8-14 pounds with a sprinkling of 16-22 pounders in the mix. Like I said, not the best but not the 2-6 pounders either. But for a stressed out 4 day captain, it was lovely. They bit good for about an hour and then they backed off. After that we dedicated ourselves to that zone. We figured that school of 14-25 pounders was just right over there. It wasn't. We didn't see another school of tuna. However, we did find a nice kelp loaded up with big yellowtail. They bit really well for a while too. In fact , they were on the corner like tuna get on the corner for a good 20 minutes and when they backed off the corner, they still bit good for a while. Other then that though we didn't see much other then the occasional small tuna on the trolling jigs but we're stoked for what we got today. The pressure is off.
We're going to stick with the plan and spend tomorrow at an Island hopefully drifting for hours. The weather has finally backed off after a couple weeks of blowing. Hopefully we get some descent weather for a nice long stretch and can get back to fishing where we please when we please.
I'm pretty sure there are no yellowtail on this side of the Island. If there were, we would have seen them. This place was very lively this morning. Pretty much, everywhere we looked, there was good bait and bird sign. I'm sure if there were any yellows around they would have made a showing. We stayed in the best area for hours, drifting for groupers and halibut and what ever else would bite our lines hoping to see those yellows pop up but they never did. They weren't around here. Unfortunately, we couldn't look anywhere else because the weather was no good. It was fine where we were. A strong wind but the swell was blocked by the Island.
So we're just sitting here now waiting for the wind to back off above here. We're messing around catching bass. The wind pretty much went away in the lee here. Hopefully that's a sign things are backing off up above here. We should be on our way home around midnight. Our weather program shows very tolerable weather then.
Fishing reports for pentwater are updated each week, usually by Thursday morning. The reports are compiled by an outside contractor who receives the information from bait shops, marinas and fishing guides.
