51 bass 36 barracuda 1 sheepshead. We spent our day looking for a new zone with better conditions. We saw a couple schools of yellowtail but did not connect. Still enjoyed fun fishing in excellent weather.
Let me explain to you readers why I had such a great day today. I am in a great mood and here's why. It all starts at the bait receivers. I lifted up the lid for the bait and I saw great bait and alot of them in the box. Then we netted it and it still looked great and after it was in our tanks it still looked great! It was schooled up and hanging low in the tank looking healthy. The best part is we got three boxes of it and for the first time for a while, with the mackerel myself and the crew caught this morning, we have a full load of bait on board. Now we're not totally in the clear yet. The bait had only been in the receiver for a day so it had no time to cure and that's always concerning. It also lost some of it's protective scales as we loaded it so there is a danger of it getting sick but so far so good. We'll know more in the morning. For the first time in 3 nights we're not running in to fish for bait all night so we get to sleep. Stoked.
The other reason I had such a good day is the good day we had today. Our timing was great. I think it started around 4:00. Our first stop of the afternoon was a good one. We landed about 50 of those mostly 20-25 pound yellowfin. After that we went from stop to stop catching anywhere from 5-20 of those beauts. We had one heck of a departure day and those fish were free. Stoked. Oh yeah, the crew and I had a nap today before we got to the grounds and we felt rested and great. Now I'm showered and am going to go eat dinner. Stoked.
We'll be here again in the morning. Tell you about it later.
We hit the yellowtail grounds today. Not until 9:30. I started looking at 0400 but we weren't there until 9:30. "There" is where we had some good tailing. There's not a whole lot to write about it. We were there, and they were hitting. Most everyone was dropping jigs down and winding them back fast to achieve there tails. Before lunch I was considering fishing yellowtails tomorrow morning before traveling all day to put us in position for tuna the following day, but when I went in to eat lunch, there were 10 fish in the box. The crew dropped them, when I came back out there were 3 in the box and everyone was leaning against the rail not fishing except 3 passengers and 1 of those had 1 hanging. I got the hint. They caught enough yellowtail and they want tuna now. So we'll be traveling all day tomorrow to put ourselves in position to fish bluefin the following day weather pending.
The weather today was windy, but the further north we get now the less wind there is. It's a nice ride now.
