The most interesting thing is that everybody is getting albacore strikes anywhere they go. We are hoping the water will cool off in the next week and the albacore will start to group up and bite. Chef Jeff is still serving up some great food. An open faced steak sandwich for lunch and dinner was a superb cajun yellowtail filet and shrimp grilled with bell peppers and onions, served with fresh yellow squash, zuchinni and mushrooms and wild rice. It was really good. It looks like Alijos and the Ridge are starting off good. The crew and I are anxious to get down on a longer trip for some of those bigger yellowfin and wahoo. We still have a couple open spots on our 9-day departing August 28. And if your looking more into the future, Larry Brown still has some openings on his 10 day on October 25th. So come out and join me and the crew.
We'd love to have you on board.Thanks, Tommy
We had a pretty good day of yellowtail fishing today. It wasn't wide open and it wasn't slow either. Just some steady picking through out most of the day. It didn't rain so that was cool. I'm really drawing a blank on what to write here so I think I'll keep it short. There's nothing significant to tell you all about. Mark didn't wear the dunce helmet today and nobody fell in the water or told a good joke. Just some steady picking of the yellows. We're heading back to the bluefin grounds to give it another try at those beauts. The weather rolling up is just fantastic and we're expecting more of it tomorrow. Oh yeah! The seared bluefin we had for dinner tonight was very very good. It was paired with edaname, these super tasty green beans and some just delicious tasting mashed potatoes so there you have it. Sweet dreams all.
I think I'm going to start naming my reports. This one is called "We should have stuck with the game plan". The plan was to start where we did, and if it didn't look good run up 40 miles to the next spot arriving just after lunch when it's bite time there. Well we started off slow. Conditions were a little funky. We saw some fish, but they didn't really bite. We caught a few yellows and the biggest ling cod I've ever seen brought up on this boat, but it wasn't good enough to stick around. So we started off sticking with the plan when we left and went north but then we decided to do some radio fishing. I heard 4th hand and then 3rd hand that a boat had a couple really good dorado kelps the day prior almost in striking distance and then really good yellowtail in the afternoon definitely in striking distance. Then I saw on my water temp chart that same water just a few hours below us so we made the move. Obviously by my whining you can tell it didn't work out. We didn't find much kelp in the good water. We found one OK kelp but we only caught a handful of flats. There was a few wahoo swimming around it but we didn't catch any.
So that's OK. We're not worried. We still have yesterdays afternoon yellowtail hot spot to fish. Not today. Should have been here yesterday. Maybe that should be the name of the report. We saw some and caught a few but it was nothing good. So here we sit. I'm not sure if we stuck with the game plan that it would have worked out. There already was a boat on the spot we were headed to and it's kind of a one boat spot so maybe we didn't miss anything.
It's funny. I haven't written this long of a report in a long time. If fishing was good today I probably would have written one paragraph. I needed to rant. Anyways we're going to stick it out here and regroup and try it again in the morning. Hopefully we find some yellows to work with but either way we plan on looking for a dorado kelp in the afternoon. Hopefully I only write one paragraph tomorrow.
We just got a report from the San Diego out of Seaforth Sportfishing in Mission Bay. We have 40 Yellowtail on the boat so far today for our 37 anglers. Check out the our latest photo from yesterday!
