Go fly a kite. We did. Awesome weather and great signs of big tuna all around us. We hit them with everything we had -kites, sinker rigs, fly line sardines, mackerels, flying fish on 100 lb then 80 lb, then 60 lb, then 40 lb, then 30 lb nothing. Chunking - nothing. Anchored, then drifted, then trolled. We proved that fishing does not equal catching. If you listened close enough - you could hear the cow tuna laughing at us. We found solace in chef Schoolers platters of sashimi, wonton cups filled with marvelous ahi poke and bacon wrapped asparagus. We heard of a place where 30 lb Dorado and mid sized yellow fin play. We are going there now.

Timing is everything. And so far our timing for the most part has been a little off, whether it be wrong day or wrong time. This morning we caught some quality fish. Less of them then we were hoping but we caught a handful of 35-50 pound yellowfin mixed in with several handfuls of smaller ones and a couple of wahoo. It didn't take long for Tommy to figure out that this was the wrong day not time. So we took off from there in search of. We found a few more wahoo on our next spot but only landed one before we kept sliding down to new zones. We fished a couple other spots for just a couple more fish while setting ourselves up for some stellar bait making. We got that job done before dinner and as I write this we are anchored up in cow town. We're expecting a couple slowish days while we're down here but the fish we land should be trophies.
The weather down here remains good. Clear skies, little wind and it's hot and muggy. Well I'm going to go back to bed for another hour or so. Check back to see how many trophies we get today.
2 days of searching was rewarded with a bottom of the 9th rally on good grade yellowtail. Flylined sardines on 25 lb is the most productive right now.
These darn bluefin let me tell ya. This morning looked so juicy. We drifted for hours on 3 different schools and caught 9. Hours. And it's not like they weren't hanging around. I mean the boat was jugged underneath. They were under us like shishkabob. 9 fish. We lost our fair share but 9 fish? With what we saw?
Mid day wasn't that awesome. We saw some but it didn't impress me. We messed around with some small yellows while we waited for things to straighten out. At 4 things did. Not right away. We saw the school and it took a while to get things going but eventually it did. We drifted for 2 straight hours catching fish. Not wide open. But fairly steady. 1-6 going. Action. Nice ones. After that drift we did it again. Again it took a while to get things going but again, it did. We drifted until dark on that one. About an hour. Same deal. Maybe a little less. 1-4 going. So it was an afternoon thing today. I'm sure glad we hung around for it.
So we head in now. We're departing tomorrow on a 5 day. What are we going to do?
10 yellowfin 1 bluefin 3 skipjack. We put our McDonough charter group on enough fish to sink the boat. Unfortunately the tuna didn’t want much to do with our hooks.
Fishing reports for texas parks and wildlife are updated each week, usually by Thursday morning. The reports are compiled by an outside contractor who receives the information from bait shops, marinas and fishing guides.
