Last night I was planning my next move way too early. I thought by 11:00 this morning we would be fixed up on both dorado and tuna so I was worrying about what I would do for the rest of the day. The old counting your chickens before the eggs hatch scenario. That never works out. By 11:00 this morning we had 2 dorado on board and hadn't even seen a tuna fish yet. It was an afternoon thing today. I prefer morning things. I like getting the sweat off early. It doesn't always work that way though and have I ever let you all down? No need to answer that.
Anyways, before lunch we found our first dorado kelp and it was good for a round. After lunch we found a school of those little tunas and did well while they were there but short lived. A couple hours of looking later we bumped into that same school 5 miles away from where we originally saw it and maybe we got on the meat better that time because it didn't go away. We left them biting. The best way to leave a school. Those things were chewing and coming on fast. They were biting as good as is possible.
After that we found a couple more kelps for a dozen more dorado and then poof, it was dark. So we're headed home and we'll be spending Sunday night with our loved ones and coming back out Monday for 1 1/2 days. Go Chargers!
First of all, what the heck was that?! Did you see that tonight?! Holy Toledo! It was like a rocket or something, blasting through the sky, then all of a sudden, boom! It just lit up. For a second there, I thought that was it. I thought, see you later world,. This is it. Then it was just out of control. I watched it with the gyros for a while and it was zippin and zappin all over the place with a huge green glow in it's wake. Wow!! And the whole fleet saw it. From here, out to there, and into there and all the way down there. I can't wait to hear the explanation. I'll remember that forever.
OK. Onto fishing.. Today, we had a bad day. Just an old fashioned bad day. And I wish that was all I had to say about that, but you make me write more to you. That wouldn't be good enough. So I'll explain it. Last night I downloaded what I thought was a tasty looking water chart. It shows much much less warm water around but there was a lovely looking strip of warm headed southeast from Clemente. So I thought I had this great idea to start at the Island, and leave when they closed it down at 11:30. Well it's what we did. We started at the Island, only we didn't catch a whole lot. A handful of nice yellows and some junk was all. So we stuck with the plan and headed down that strip of warm water. You know, the promise land, so I thought. I was wrong. And that's all I have to say about that.
We did experience some great flat calm weather. And we caught our first ever American wahoo in November, so that was cool. Good boat, good crew, and good food. We just missed the good fishing. Sometimes you eat the bar, and sometimes the bar eats you. Sometimes you're sitting field level, and sometimes you're sitting nose bleed. That's all a part of the game.
Team Supreme just got some new gear for the upcoming season. Brand new Talica 20s! Perfect for those local 100+ lb Bluefin and Guadalupe Yellowfin Tuna!
Big thanks to our friends at Shimano reels for the great reels!
Today was greatly disappointing after such a great fishing yesterday. Our efforts for better quality fish did not pay off. We saw great signs of 80-100 lb. fish but they just didn't want to cooperate. They would boil up good and look promising, but we only got a handful of fish. We are going to leave this place and give it time to straighten out. We are going to look for a new area. Our weather is still absolutely premium. Warm, hot and balmy. Thanks for checking in.
