October Smorgasbord

It was great to get back out today, and even better to catch a lot of fish!

For the record, this week the yellowfin fishing turned on, and the kingfishing has been red hot as well. We headed up to the east to try for tuna, and did well. It was a pretty steady bite, mostly ones and twos, but come quittin’ time, we had fourteen yellowfins and a dozen blackfins. A nice school of small bailer dolphin swam in while we were fighting one of the yellowfins, so we whacked about fifteen of them as well. At one point we got whammed by a covey of sailfish, and managed to land and release two. Not a bad day, huh?! The guys further south had great kingfishing and a good sign of wahoos.
