We had a great morning today. I'd have to check with the big guy but I believe we had around 60 of the 15-25 pound yellowfin and 9 of those big 60-80 pound bluefins on our first drift. I'd call that a good morning. It wasn't full speed either. It was just a nice scratch over a period of a few hours. Nice drifting along there in beautiful weather once again. I sure hope this weather lasts a while along with the fishing.
After our first drift we did some others of course. None producing as well as the first one but throughout the day we scratched at some more yellowfin and a few more of those big bluefins. It was just what we needed after a day of mostly driving around seing a lot and not catching much. Needless to say we'll be hanging around here tonight and trying it again tomorrow.
On a sad note, one of the greats in the sportfishing industry passed away today. Most of you reading this wouldn't know who I'm talking about because he was a behind the scenes guy. I'm talking about the great sardine fisherman Joe Machado, and if you've been fishing in the last 35+ years, you were using bait most likely caught or found by him. As you all know, no bait no fish, so we'll be throwing some sardines over the side for him tomoorow. RIP Joe.
Well, our best fishing today came from the zone where all of our offshore fishing has been this year. No surprise there. I wish we would have stayed in that zone longer, but for the past week, anyone on there last day of there trip has been complaining about there speed going up. "Oh it's soo slow", "we're driving through mud", "make sure you give yourself plenty of extra time", etcetera, etcetera. So we planned on that. We fished with our watch today. But that never happened. We never did slow down. Unfortunately, by planning on it, it put us in this years desert zone. The zone with no fish. Beautiful water, no fish. But things have to change right? Right. Just not today. Oh well. At least our first 2 days were good ones. Oh, and the weather was good. That always helps.
We'll be in tomorrow and Tommy will be coming back out for 5. I'm going home. What will I do? Spend every minute with my beautiful daughter except for the 4 1/2 hours spent on the golf course. I will miss writing to you folks though. I enjoy telling you what's on my mind. I sugar coat nothing. See you all in 5 days.

Hi friends. Back at it today and it was a pretty good day of boatwork. Well, as good as a day of boatwork could be. We shifted our cleaning and organizing efforts to the wheelhouse today. In all honesty, it looks beautiful. Everything is neatly placed in it's correct spot and it's easy to locate and get access too. But in all honesty, in about two months, it's probably going to look exactly how it did before we cleaned it up. But, that's how it is on a boat. Things get thrown around in the heat of an on-water emergency and roll around during rough seas. For now, it's looking good. Speaking of looking good, our friend Stanley Steamer payed the boat a visit today and our carpets got a nice cleaning as well. All in all, a fine day of boatwork and we're one day closer to our first trip on Saturday.
Projects for tomorrow include: some refrigeration maintenance, some A/C work, more cleaning and organizing and we'll take a ride to the fuel dock to change oil and fuel filters, take on more oil and fuel and take a little boat ride about San Diego Bay and see how things are running while we're underway. We'll chat with you tomorrow.

P.S. A little news update for you, our fellow long-range companion, the American Angler, spotted lots of scattered tuna jumping about in overnight range. Check out our schedule and take a peak at some of our early season 1.5, 2 and 3-day trips. Give Susan a call ASAP at 619 390 7890 and get in on some of this early season action that seems to be perking up more and more everyday.

Good evening, friends. We departed on an open party 5-day trip today with a healthy load of people and a healthy load of bait. Our weather traveling down is quite nice and we're looking like the weather is going to clean up for the next few days, so we're pumped. As far as the fishing outlook, one boat in the area today did equally phenomenal on bluefin and yellowfin. Straight up.We'll be in the area tomorrow and we'll chat you up tomorrow on our day.
Getting back to yesterday, we'd like to thank Paul Hess and his crew that tagged along with him this year. If I recall, this was Paul's 12th annual trip and we look forward to seeing him, his son, Matt, and the rest of the gang that comes back year after year (thanks for bailing, Boomhower. More bluefin and yellowfin for us.) Anyhow, It's a fantastic trip, one of my favorites every year, and we'll see y'all next year.
So that's all. We'll chat with you tomorrow.
