Captain Andrew Viola checked in this morning at 8:59 PM with an audio update from the Pacifica out of Seaforth Sportfishing in Mission Bay, CA. We have been drifting for an hour and have put together a good score so far. We have 62 Yellowfin Tuna and 4 Bluefin Tuna. We are still drifting with fish around the boat.
We have a 1.5 day trip departing on Wednesday night. We also have a full day trip on Sunday. Come out fishing on the Pacifica!!!!
Capt Matt and the boys are engaged with a school of bluefin. They currently have 7 on deck and few more hanging. The fish they have landed so far are 25-35 lbs. I’m sure the big boys are watching and waiting for their opportunity to bite someone’s light line. Come prepared with a 25 lb setup a 40 lb setup and a setup capable of landing a fish over 100 lbs. the variety of available fish sizes creates a bit of a pickle but trust me when I tell you. You want to use heavier than needed equipment rather than the opposite.
This season has been full of extreme conditions. Our weather has been either flat grease calm with air temps pushing triple digits or victory at sea borderline dangerous. Our fishing has been either crazy wide open or scary slow. Today’s trip had a little of everything. Strong South wind in the morning followed by calm seas in the afternoon. Empty kelp patties in the morning followed by crazy wide open bonito smash. We never found a wide open dorado kelp but managed to scratch 27 along with 8 yellowfin tuna and a handful of yellowtail and skipjack.
It was a slow day out here today for us. It was a slow day for many. But of course it depends on who you talk to, some might say it was a great day. It all depended on which school you found. Just like it's been, most schools don't produce, but the few lucky ones do. We didn't find the lucky one. Our best school was for 20. But no matter who you ask, it was a slow afternoon today. After lunch, we didn't find a school till after 6:00. We're due.
The weather today was awesome. Again. We're going to drift out here tonight and try it again tomorrow. I thought about doing something different, like hunting bluefin, but it hasn't been very good and our plan B., that being San Clemente island is closed tomorrow darnit. Plus these yellowfin we're catching are just too beautiful. Such a nice grade.
One more day. We're due. It won't take much more to get 200 of these things for the trip. 200 of these things would be nice.
