I seem to remember saying that the fishing was getting ready to turn loose. I was right.
My group expressed an interest in trying for tuna today, eventhough there was outstanding dolphin fishing yesterday. We had some bites, mostly blackfins and a king mackerel, before things kinda slowed up. We went off in the deep for a while and got wrapped up with the gaffer dolphin a couple of times. I think we wound up with 14 of them. I headed back inshore to see if the tunas had changed their mind, and they had. We had some great action in the afternoon, and by the time the smoke cleared, we had landed 14 blackfins and three yellowfins. The blackfins averaged 15 pounds, with a couple probably close to 20. The largest yellowfin probably went 30 pounds. Elsewhere in the fleet, there was one blue marlin released, one white marlin, and a few wahoos. Congratulations Leonard on your first tuna!!
