We are headed up the line with beautiful weather after a nice trip that produced quality Yellowfin tuna and Wahoo.

We spent the first five days at Clarion and found scratch fish from 15 to 20 tuna a day and a few wahoo a day. The fishing was tough but we manage to throw on about 35 mixed tuna and wahoo a day. The sign was incredible but the sharks made it very challenging to bring fish aboard. 

We spent the last two days outside at the Bank and had two really nice days of  wahoo and tuna fishing .

Averaging 37 tuna a day and 50 wahoo a day with the first day being the best on the wahoo.

Really nice weather and a little less on the sharks made for classic Bank fishing with conditions that took the lines perfectly back behind the boat.

The kite was the tool of choice and also the balloons providing most of the bites with a great show on fish jumping around the boat and the Bank.

We will be in to unload on Wednesday the 23rd .

See you then Andy Cates

We have found the nice weather and headed south. We came down just outside alijos rocks with 65.5 degree water and green . Now it is blue water and 70.0 degrees. We had a nice seminar today and spent the rest of the day rigging up. The boat is about ready and so are the people.

Good evening .
We left on a 15 day ride down ride back sponsored by Loftus and Martin. We picked up a real nice load of bait with a good percentage of nice hook bait. All sardines with a slight mix of mackerel. The weather is bumpy but going down swell is fine....Tomorrow our first full day of travel and we will be getting the boat ready for a week of fishing.
