Gotta earn it!
We headed out last night on early season day and half trip, and the last couple days the reports of yellow seemed to good. We started the day off finding a few schools that didn’t want anything to do with us and by lunchtime we had a 1 fish after stopping the boat on several schools, oh boy! Some things never change around here that is to say we didn’t give up. This afternoon we got even with those Yellowtail and ended our day with 38 fish. The gang worked hard for every fish and it turned out ok. Thank you all so much.

As we know when we come down to fish for trophy yellowfin tuna it comes down to our timing and playing the cards we are dealt. Lucky for us even though the last couple of days have been tough overall we were dealt some good hands. The guys that were down here the round before us had it pretty tough but thanks to them they narrowed down where not to go so we were able to drive right to them. As we travel up we’re happy about the nice catch aboard but the real success is when I walked into the galley before dinner and the volume was at a low roar. Everyone aboard even though all different shapes and sizes meshed into one cohesive unit and became one which makes this trip the biggest success of all. The guys
We woke up this morning and found that our conditions had changed and for whatever reason, the bottom line is that we just could not connect the dots. The fish we did find were smaller grade and the few bigger fish we did hook managed to get away. The old saying of ” if you go to enough ball games you will sit in every seat” was very true as we weren’t quite in the nosebleeds but we definitely were not behind home plate. The guys
The saying that hard work pays off pretty much sums up the fishing that we have been doing the last few days. Soaking many baits before one finds that perfect swimmer,the right timing and just simply a little luck is what it takes to be part of the riches at the end of the story. Greg Stoney caught the days largest with a 204.5 and Glenn Kuromi was right there with one that weighed 198lbs. The guys
Pretty much Groundhog Day which in this case is not a bad thing. Good weather as we scratched away on an amazing grade of fish with the afternoon pretty much falling on its face as the life went away. This hasn’t been a great trip for cows but the mid to high one hundreds sure make each and every battle a good one. Tony Dupree landed this trips largest so far with a 227. The guys
