Hello friends. The weather could be a lot better offshore, that's for sure. It's bumpy, it's windy, it's cold and wet - the people are not digging it at all. It's just a bad time for everyone when the boat is rolling back and forth, bouncing up and down, the wind howling, people are sick and it's just an unpleasant deal all the way around. Buuuutttttt, this problem does not exist when you're in the calm lee of an island and that's where we are, so we're pumped. Our only problem with the weather right now is sun burns and kelp flies. Needless to say, we're happy we made the move inside and with the weather still forcasted to be up offshore, we're going to give this island weather another day and brave the elements of flat calm weather and endless sunshine.
As for the fishing; it wasn't hot and heavy but it was a nice pace for the gang to enjoy. We had a few morning drifts where the dropper loops were getting bit but the seals ended that party pretty quick. So, we decided to make a move for less local harassment and we had ourselves a nice drift around lunch time that really made our day. a fly-lined sardine was the ticket to capture a nice 'tail and the fish ranged from 12-18 lbs. Quality sized fish and the kids and adults alike were having themselves a ball. After our drift dried up, we toured around various spots to no avail but were excited about the prospects of tomorrow.
Like I said, we'll be here for one more day tomorrow and come the evening time, we're going to have to start working our way up the line and try to make it the smoothest ride we can going home. With that, we'll chat with y'all tomorrow. Have a great day.
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!
We had another great day today. Stoked. Things didn't start off so great though. Nope. Before 11:00 am things weren't so hot We only had a few fish on board. Things have been different at this place everyday. We just needed to figure it out. And we did. We figured it out. For the next few hours we picked away. One here, two there kind of thing with an occasional flury. Around two though things got busy. For the next few hours we were pulling on 14-25 pound yellows with 5-6 going all the time. I was just sitting up here in the wheel house with crew member Justin and we were reflecting on how much fun it was. We had a good day. Fish hold number 2 is full now.
We're going to hang tight on the anchor tonight and start off here in the morning. We wouldn't mind getting another taste of this before we see what other shananagans(still haven't found the spell check on here) we can get into next. We're thinking we"ll hunt for trophies and make Halibut drifts in the afternoon. Trophies being the 40-50 pound model yellowtails. I'll tell you about it tomorrow.
Same story different day. Stopped on some good schools of tuna but very tough to get a bite. Ended up with 5 yellowfin. Hoping for a change in the near future.
