Today was mostly a travel day for us. We did have a nice little surprise in the morning. We had a double jig strike on wahoo. Then we had a couple more singles. Then we had one more single a little later along with a few dorados. When we got to the yellowtail grounds in the afternoon we found mucho wind. It was blowing 25-30 knots right through the grounds we were planning on fishing so we fished elsewhere. We found a little spot with some current before dark and we captured 6 cow yellows, we're talking 30-40 pounders, to go along with lots of 10-12 pounders and some bonito. Action is what we call that. We now have to head north and we'd like to find some dorado tomorrow. It's going to be a bumpy/windy ride up tonight and we hope for it to back off tomorrow for our fishing and ride home.
170 yellowfin 93 skipjack. Good weather and great fishing, didn’t feel like November today.
47 yellowtail 29 bonito 6 calico bass. A couple of good shots today. Surface iron fishing is a technique that should be attempted once you are completely comfortable with your gear. I believe that you will enjoy fishing a lot more if you become very good at bait fishing first. Flylined sardines were the most productive today.
Arrive/depart. A quick one too. We were out before 9:30. We got our bait and we were gone. We started fishing after lunch. We had one little area that was loaded up with 5 pound skipjack. We stopped a few times to let everyone pull and jerk on something and practice following there fish around the boat and stuff. We had a couple kelps with a few small yellows we caught. We unfortunately made it to our destination before dark. I say unfortunately because we were hoping to bump into something sooner. We saw only a few little dabs of tuna while we had light. I mean just a few fish, and they didn't bite. We're currently anchored in the cove here and we're enjoying a nice prime rib dinner and I think we'll sleep well tonight.
It sounded like it was a better day around here. Not just catching wise but fishing too. Never thought I'd say that but what I mean is there was a bigger spread of fish seen today. They weren't all seen in the same honey hole like most of last week. We have high hopes for tomorrow. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going on break.
Choppy seas turned into a flat beautiful ocean. We think the fish liked it as much as we did. 76 yellowfin 75 skipjack for our 38 passengers.
