Go Time!

Well today felt like we were back on a long range trip, very steady Tuna action all afternoon. It was such good fishing I hardly had time to get a couple of photos. We have another day down here on the Ridge and then it’s time to start the move back up the line so we are going to look at another spot in the morning and hope we have our good luck going on still.

Good night and today was fun!

Our Turn

We just got to fishing today with the travel down, we did stop a couple times yesterday and picked up a few Yellowtail but officially today as far as I’m concern the clock started. We took today’s slot at the Rocks for our swing at the Wahoo and we did manage to get a few handfuls in the morning into lunchtime but no afternoon delight today. We are changing zip codes as we speak and hope for some hot and heavy action in our future. Did get a few photos of the gang today with their fish.

Good night,

The AA Gang


The guys returned nice and early to unload their fall variety catch – tuna, wahoo, dorado and yellowtail.

Bound For Home

It’s always nice to finish a trip on a high note and with the location of these Dorados we were able to fill that order today before it was time to bundle up the rods and call it a trip. Took some photos of the gang with some Mai’s and also of one of our star crew members with a Mustad 2/0 J hook, this is not a proper nose hook demonstration. Dave is just fine, we did take it out after the photo. Now it’s time to say our Thank You’s to all of the group and to our sponsors Monte and Uncle Dee for another great M&M rod trip.

Thank You Your Crew

Sam, Brad, Dave, Brian, Andrew, Nick and Paul.

Good night and we are enjoying the ride still. ETA 0530.

Beach Day

It is time to head up all the time, today we bounced up the coast checking out some spots targeting Yellowtail. This is not a normal water year as we all know  so why would anything down here be different. Most of the Yellowtail we have been catching have been in the upper latitudes more than lower places where we would usually find them. With that being said, there are few in some places and while we spent most of the day hitting various spots we scratched up enough to make a day of it.

The photo of the day is Jan and Capt Brad with the jackpot of the day.

Good night and moving up,

Had to earn it!

We had a fun day Wahoo fishing today in good weather. All the guys have been fishing the Rocks this last week for Wahoo and they are nice ones. Nothing has changed with catching these fish, you will have to hook a bunch to get a few. Our gang did a great job even with all the casualty’s , the normal unbutton, chew threw and you name it. A few photos of the day of the gang all having a good time. If you are coming on an upcoming Long Range trip I highly recommend bringing the best of the best Wahoo tackle because you just never know when it’s going to be your day.

Good Night,

The AA Gang

On the move

We have been fishing the inside the past few days and Tuna fishing has been good for the guys down here on their trips. This morning we trolled up the upper end of the Ridge for only one lone Wahoo so you know what we do, run West. We have a reservation for the Rocks tomorrow and we are not going to miss that. We hope for good luck and good fun. Good night,

The AA Team

Different Day!

Started the morning out with just a few guys trying and things seemed to start out good. But as it would be, after daylight fish can change their habits and with that said it was hard to hook a Tuna. There have been a lot of Skipjack Tuna, like we have seen in the past, and so it’s just part of the game we play. There is good sign of nice Tuna to catch in a few different spots – so the near future looks good for upcoming trips. We have one more place to try in the morning before we head off on another course tomorrow.The photos of the day are of Pat and Ryan.

Good night,

Back in business

We arrived to our waypoint right at first light and began to go to work on these Tuna, by snack time things backed off and we did a little looking around. The Afternoon spot worked out very nicely and I think we’ll try here in the morning. This Tuna down here in the warm water (84 degrees) seem to favor the Yoyo type jigs for sure, but the live bait was working too. Our weather is on the mend and we have a good forecast in our future and looking forward to that. The Gang is having a lot of fun and we lots of time.

Good night,

The AA Gang

Bound Downwind

Not much to say in the way of fishing here today stopped the boat early this morning let some of the gang yank on some Yellows and the rest of the day was spent just traveling down. We will be on the Ridge in the morning and hope for good things to come our way after waiting patiently for the wind to clear out Simon.

Good night,

The AA Gang.
