Southern fishing now is on fire. so many kinds of fish in such a compact area. Jump on your 7 to 10 day trip soon.
We kicked the you know what out of the yellowfin today. We engaged in battle and we won. We started our drift at 6:30 this morning and drove away from them biting at lunch. The fish were from 22-35 pounds and were snapping. I don't think I've seen that good of fishing on that good of a grade since the albacore days. Hopefully this lasts for some time to come. The weather was great today but the further north we go now the more choppy it's getting. Just in time for dinner.
We've just been traveling up since our only needed stop this morning setting us up for our last day in the bluefin grounds. It sounded slow up there today but maybe they're just waiting for captain Drew to get up there. Rent rod Ryan donated a 40 pound bluefin yesterday to the galley and we were planning on eating it for dinner tonight but in the middle of the mayhem today we lost it buried under the yellowfin so he donated a few yellowfin so we're having seared Ahi instead. Mmmmm.
We found some action early this morning on a kelp with some yellowtails. Mark found it but I don't think I can give him credit for it. "twelve oclock, a trash can lid. Oh I lost it. oh nine o'clock. ile in a half. No, half mile. Two trash can lids. Oh I lost it". The second time he lost it he looked ion the wrong side of the boat so i found it and it was a good sized kelp. Oh Mark. Anyhow, everyone on the boat got to pull and tug on a little yeller and tag one or two if they chose. We hit it a couple times before getting in tuna mode. Things looked very similar to yesterday. Many spots of yellowfin around, just no meat to it. I'm talking 6-12 fish schools mostly and they weren't very interested in us.We worked very hard for just a handful of fish. The good news is it wasn't boring as I think I mentioned last night. The fish kept us on our toes. Good sight seeing. Good fishing, bad catching. Oh well. We still had a good time out here on our first trip of the year and we have our passengers to thank.
Please excuse the spelling. I'm sitting back in my chair as I write this and the letters on the screen are to small to see and the E on this keyboard keeps falling off. We'll get everything under control real soon.
125 yellowfin for our 45 passengers. We had 2 drifts today both of which took a finesse presentation to get a bite. Size 2 or even size 4 hooks on 20lb flouro carbon is still the recommended set up when the tuna are picky. And special thanks to Captain Todd and crew of the @voyagersportfishing for letting us double team a very nice school with them.
