Hi friends. Well, the day finally arrived and instead of "to-do" lists and parts lists and repair and restoration work, we have our eyes solely focused on stars, a peaceful ocean and visions of tomorrow that has some unable to sleep properly. I'm thankful to say that we have set sail on our first voyage of the 2012 season with Billy Stephen's and his crew of merry lads - young and old alike. Everyone is excited to see what tomorrow brings as we will be targeting Bluefin and Yellowfin tuna and any other offshore foe that wishes to test our hunting skills. We're ready. The blood is pumping and after a hearty feast of prime rib, we're sending everybody down to the rooms to rest up for a long day tomorrow. We'll be up at 0530 and when the sun finally sets at around 2030 hours (summer days seem to never quit), we'll report back to you on our scores and accomplishments and hopefully, they are as bountiful and endless as our fantastic traveling weather that we enjoyed today.
We're back. We've got some old salts on here that know a thing or two about fishing, a crew with hands that are far too gunked up with grease, paint dust and other souvenirs of a lengthy boatwork and some young guns to boot. First trip of the year is an exciting one indeed and we'll see how things play out tomorrow and we'll report back to you at the completion of our day.

P.S. To all of our lovely ladies back on land who are so gracious to let us go fishing for days and days on end. First of all, hello. How are all of you this fine evening? Good, we miss you too. Now, to all the mothers; the kids are all tucked away in bed and to say they are pumped is an understatement. Everyone is in good spirits and the men are doing a noble job of teaching them to harnessing that energy, get some rest and hit the deck early tomorrow morning. It's all good. Good night now.
Today our 29 angler private charter endured a little choppy weather and landed 25 yellowfin and 4 bluefin. Pretty exciting times right now because we don’t know if we will see small bluefin, big bluefin, yellowtail or yellowfin. Come prepared and enjoy the show.
Well this day has to start with last night. During and after dinner the military helicopters were up and they were blowing up San Clemente and it was rad. We could see the tracers which were very bright and flew just as fast as the 5 rounds in between each tracer with about each strafing run having about 12 tracers per, which is over 100 rounds. We could see the glow of each tracer bouncing off the island. And after we thought it was cool enough we went to bed.
In the morning we started fishing. We had a little action. We basically drifted for a couple hours hooking fish. Sometimes we had one going, sometimes we had four, and sometimes we had none but for some reason it didn't add up to as much as we would've thought. We were losing alot and we attributed that to the hammer head sharks that were swimming around. We think that they were stealing a lot of the tuna we hooked. When that dried up we went searching and a little after 10:00 we found a dandy school and went sideways(drifted) for a while. I'd have to call it almost wide open for about 1/2 an hour and then a pick for 15 minutes after that. During lunch we were drifting on tuna too but we weren't hooking a whole lot. We only caught about six that time. And after that the life vanished so we moved on.
It took a couple hours but we found what we were looking for. Tuna. Unfortunately they were the non biting ones. I'll tell you though, it was a sight to see. Sonar schools, breezers, boilers, foamers. You name it, it was awesome. We did get a couple descent drifts there in the end and all and all we're calling this a very successfully trip.
We'll be dockside until Oct. 3. You guys didn't book. My babies going to have to wear hand me down shoes now. All of her friends are going to make fun of her. Oh well. We"ll get through it. We'll do a little maintenance on the boat while we're in but we don't need to do much. The boats been running great as soon as we got rid of those early season gremlins. See you all Oct. 3rd.
