Taylor called me yesterday morning and said they wanted to take advantage of the "weather window", so we went blackfin jigging!
It was plenty good enough to fish but the 5 mph NE winds that were predicted were really closer to 20 all day. That, coupled with 4 ½ knots of current and an overabundance of sharks made landing tunas a challenge. We sacrificed a lot of jigs and fish but still wound up with a nice catch of 10-20 pound blackfins. Thanks guys, can't wait to see the video!
My buddy Emmet drove down last night for some blackfin action, but they were scarce today.
The weather was perfect but I couldn't find a tuna. After lunch we decided to jog inshore, break out the TLDs and try dead baiting some kings. It was happening. For an hour and a half we had fish skying on baits and screaming off drag. Lotta fun, and not a bad "fall back" plan! Thanks Emmet!
Two of us had charters today and went tuna fishing. It was excellent.
We caught a box full of blackfin tuna and a 40 pound wahoo by 11:30. We trolled offshore hoping to find some yellowfin, we did hook one but he got eaten by a shark before we landed him. OUTSTANDING fishing, PLUS the guys that live baited did great on the kings. Thanks Lance!
Computer issues prevented me from posting the last couple of days we fished, but fishing has been great.
Last weekend my buddy Greg brought his family out for a great day of live bait kingfishing. Non-stop action. We commercial king mackerel fished the last two days and wound up with 1400 pounds. I think we are gonna go tuna fishing tomorrow, or so says Bubbah!
We had another pretty day offshore, and great live bait action again!
Lots of bites and lots of fish. Steve landed our only citation king, a 34 pounder, but we had plenty of nice ones that were just shy of the 30# mark. Thanks again Adam!
My guys wanted to catch live bait this morning and try some light tackle kingfishing.
The water was cooler and not quite as pretty as it has been, but the action was still great. First bite of the day was a citation 21 pound blackfin tuna, and after that it was all kings. We had a lot of "skyrocket" bites and everybody got to enjoy seeing big fish explode on flatlines and short baits. Hopefully the drum will bite as good for you guys this evening. Thanks Mike!
Today we were after tuna, but wound up kinda stuck in the middle.
The boats that stayed closer to home had good catches of king mackerel on live bait, dolphin and a wahoo or two. We headed east to find tuna. The current was screaming and the fish weren't cooperative. A few boats fished further to the east but I decided to wait where I was and hope for a few bites. Phil caught a 50 pound yellowfin and we did land one out of a couple nice blackfins, but the bite got a little better in the afternoon for the guys that fished up. Still, we got a couple of nice fish and they owe us for next time. Thanks Mark!
This morning we caught live bait but the water was still so stirred up from the storm that we couldn't find anywhere to use them.
We ran out to the blue water but things were slow. We caught too many albacore, one king mackerel and Matt released a sailfish. There was some yellowfin action further to the east but I didn't find out about it till it was too late. Thanks Chris, see you guys next time!
Today we made up for yesterday's "misses"...and then some!
It was a little breezy this morning but my guys quickly made the decision to go trolling. We had a great morning catching a box full of blackfins and five wahoos. Erik got lucky and landed a citation 43 pounder! Thanks for a great day Doug!
I always do better when I make a plan and stick to it.
Today we went to find live bait to look for kings, but menhaden were hard to come by. We headed out with a well full of small blues but I got frustrated after fishing in a good looking spot with no bites, so I headed out and switched over to the trolling gear. It wasn't a bad plan, and we had a fair amount of action, but we didn't have the best luck today. We landed one out of five wahoo bites, three gaffers, missed a sail, broke off a white and saw a blue marlin chasing bait. Right near the end of the day I found some big kings. We caught a couple trolling and switched back over in time to catch a nice one on live bait. Thanks Ronnie!
