After sitting on cloud nine from last nights bite the morning anticipation was killing us. As the first handful of better grade 60-120 fish hit the deck, we thought we were right on track but the fish played a familiar disappearing act shortly after the initial hit. We decided to take a break from the tuna scene and put jigs in the water to mix it up with a little wahoo fishing and we didn’t exactly set the world on fire but it was a nice way to break up the day. Now with wahoo on the brain we are moving up the line to try and get some revenge on those sneaky skins.
After making an overnight run to what we hoped would be our new home, a guardian angel looked over us because boy was it ever. With encouraging sign of hooking fish right at daylight, the positivity was running high amongst the gang. Before the fish took a morning break, Marianne Randall showed everyone how’s it’s done boating this 233lber on a sinker sardine set up. Then they took a mid day break, but we were definitely planning on a late afternoon attack. Before you knew it we had 5 to 8 going on beautiful 60-160lber’s and a token 205lber taken by Steve sowden (his second cow of the trip). The bite lasted about two hours and it was two hours of straight high adrenalin fast pace fishing. Some bites came fast and some you had to work at but the opportunity was as good as it gets. When the smoke cleared we ended up the day with twenty eight good grade tuna from 60-233lbs and limits of smiles. Like all fisherman we can’t get enough so we are staying put in hopes of a repeat tomorrow. Keeping the faith The guys
Rolling into this morning we were pretty confident with the last couple AM’s we’ve had. Come to find out we had a little change in conditions when bite time was normally starting. Although sometimes the fish don’t always mind but in today’s case they didn’t show up to the party. As it became full light out we had only a couple fish to show. So with things changing we are making a little move in hopes of change for the better. Trying to stay cool The guys
