We traveled up the line and started to catch a few yellows and tuna and it almost seemed redundant. We decided to travel up in the afternoon in order to have a shot at jackpot on our last day.
We ran in to the beach to mix it up and our good fishing streak continued. We enjoyed steady yellowtail fishing as Steve Hath shows how fun it is. We tried to mix it up even further and tried some sinker fishing and ended up with a hand full of nice sea bass which Kub Ito’s photogenic side helps display.
It is amazing how conditions directly dictate the outcome of our fishing day. Last trip we were second guessing our fishing abilities as we had a tough catching trip but the exact same area 2 days later was totally different. We had as good as it gets fishing on good grade yellows and dorado on kelps and fantastic fishing on yellowfin tuna to 35lbs. Dr. Uyeki is stoked with one of his yellows and Lee Ann ,Andrew,and Jay are proof of why dorado are always the crowd pleaser.
After a tough day fishing locally we had to make the run down below in hopes of putting a few fish aboard. Weather was marginal at best but we were still able to manage to find some kelps. We never found the load them up stop but we did manage a little action. Toki and his wonderful daughter Yumi show the family spirit with a nice yellow. Even though we experienced tough timing this veteran group of anglers made the best of it and had a good time. Thanks to Toki for assembling a great group of folks and for showing the hospitality that makes everything come together.
We started the day with a lot of optimism and high hopes of catching our share of the good grade yellowfin and bluefin that have been putting on a show in recent weeks. We were confident that we were in the right spot but after daylight we realized we would have to be patient. After a slow pick on yellowtail we realized that we would have to work on the tuna thing and after checking with the whole fleet it was next to nonexistent. With zero sign and most captains wondering how not to get skunked, we had to start moving to set our day up tomorrow. We had some yellowtail and dorado action late and one of the best stories that came out was Scott Kwong and his dorado which was the very first fish he has ever caught. The guys
Keep the ball rolling.
We had the pleasure of staying in yesterday’s area last night so we were on scene at day light. We started striking on Tuna at first light and not much time after that we found our first kelp with fish. Mid morning rolled around and as luck would have it, found anther kelp that we were able to stay busy for while on the good grade yellowtail. When it was time to bundle up the rods and head home blessed again with a good day of fishing. As always would like to thank the gang for coming out with us, a lot fun with the younger kids. We got a couple photos for the day when things mellowed out but now it’s time to clean up and get some dinner.
Your Crew. Sam, Andrew, Landfill, Dave, Brad, Nick and Paul.
Working for a living!
First of all we had very nice weather, a little drizzle in the morning but calm seas. We seemed to shut down in the dark in a good spot, and just a few minutes after we got underway at gray we had our first strike on Yellowfin. Throughout the morning it was fairly steady, some stops with bait fish some not so much. Visibility wasn’t that great early in the day but by the midday it cleared up and we just went work. We found a few kelps with a mix of Tuna and Yellowtail but by late afternoon we were lucky and found a couple of kelps that really made the day. By days end the gang had used up several tags and wet shoes, just the way we like it. The photos of the day are of Myranda and Chase, hats off to our junior anglers today. We’ll try it again in the A.M…
