It was all dropper loop fishing so bring out your heavy 12 ounce sinkers.
The action lasted until 10:00 and then the current died.

 

So far so good this morning with about
30 wahoo and a little bit of tuna.

Another great night and day of fishing

Picking at the wahoo this morning. Mostly on the drift. Not to many strikes.
 

We were up until midnight catching yellows. After midnight it slowed down but what a great run that was. Nice fish , the tuna were all that 25 plus pound fish and good grade yellowtail.
 

Sept. 19, 2016

After we got the anchor down we had great fishing on these school size tuna from 12 to 30 pounds. We caught fish right up until dark. A few nice bull Dorado in the mix as well. We are anchored up and will try for yellows tonight and hope for more wahoo and tuna tomorrow

 


We are headed south again. Maybe we can scratch at a few tuna down at the next spot.
