Ok fellas, looks like it's getting better out there, just in time!
We went 8 for 10 hooked yesterday and 13 for 18 today. Took a lot of time yesterday to locate the fish, didn't have a bite until 4:11 pm! Then double header and both popped off right away. Talk about fuckin' disheartening. Turned the boat around and BAM ~ QUAD!!!
We managed to get all 4 on board, even though there were only 3 of us so that was cool.
Flip the boat around for another double header that we board. Couple more passes for no bites.
Keep trolling and hit another double at 7:15 which we landed. Decided it was time to head into a bit shallower water and drop the hook for the night. As we were anchoring in the dark a freighter came cruising behind us about 1/4 mile off the stern. Somewhat disconcerting. So Slivo and I decide to have a couple bevvies and listen to the big buggers cruise by for a bit. Creepy to say the least.
Sleep a few hours and then head back out this morning.
Lines in about 8a.m. Twenty minutes and we hit a single. Get him on board and spin.
In the next hour we got 9 out of 14 of the fish that hit into the box. That hour was ABSOLUTELY INSANE!! As a fisherman I really have got to say, that kind of action just leaves you shaking at the knees.
The next couple passes produced nothing so we continued to troll the grids looking for them.
We hit three more singles as we trolled which put us to 13 fish into the boat for the day. 2:30 p.m. comes and we decided to pull the pin and get back nice and early for a change.
Anyhow, I feel great (my arms hurt like hell) and confident that anyone coming to the weekend event will catch a few fish!
Have changed the party to the Saturday night instead of Sunday for obvious reasons...
So let's get it on next weekend people and slay some tunas!!!!!!!!!!!!!
