This morning started out rather slow. We anchored a shallow in the dark and found no current. After daylight we moved and checked some shallow water areas picking up two small yellows and a short halibut (released). We returned to our original reef to find just a trickle of current and saw a nice ball of yellows. We waited them out for about 30 minutes before getting the first bite. Then they hit us and hit us hard. For the next two hours we had great fishing. Fish eating the surface iron, the live bait and the yo-yo jig. When the dust settled we had landed 85 nice yellows from 20 -30lbs. What a great way to end the trip.
Glenn Pamaran, gets the honors today. He took these two nice yellows while keeping all of the Shimano test gear in perfect working order. He is a great representative for Shimano and a joy to fish with.
We will be in tomorrow and tied up for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Tim will be back at the helm on Sunday for the “ Let's Talk Hook Up” 12 day adventure.

Today we slid up above a wind event and enjoyed some good fishing on quality yellowtail. We had great weather and beautiful scenery, while catching 18-25# yellows. We will fish for a bit tomorrow morning before heading home for the Thanksgiving holiday. We have all of the factors that go into a great trip, quality, quantity and variety. Beyond that we have a great group of anglers and a very generous sponsor in Shimano.

Today we focused on yellowtail and came away with a nice day. We scratched steady for most of the morning, then found a biting school for about 50 in short order. We traveled up for the afternoon to be in better position for tomorrows fishing.

Today we fished for variety, concentrating on wahoo, dorado and yellowtail. We managed to scratch at all three species and included some catch and release tuna as well. Overall a bit slower than we had hoped, but the joy of multi-day trips is that we still have tomorrow.

Tom walker with a nice bull dorado is today's shot.

Today we prospected offshore looking for pelagics. We got off to a good start finding a wahoo and a 114# tuna. Another hour in that area with no other sign and we were back to prospecting. In the afternoon we found a very promising area with a lot of life. Birds, whales, porpoise, bait and game fish were all present. We worked spot after spot of large tuna and dorado to no avail. I don't know when these tuna are going to start biting, but when they do I want to be there. The potential for outstanding fishing is here.

Jim Robart gets the honors today with his 114# yellowfin caught on Shimano gear and a Braid Marauder.

We had another action packed day today. The school size tuna (15-25#) bit steady throughout the late morning and early afternoon. We only stopped when we had enough of this grade tuna. We also had a few stops on wahoo which kept everyone's adrenaline level high.

Two photos today. First, from left to right, Gary Ishii, Riggs Smith, Fred Lee, Tom Walker and Brian Maggio proudly display wahoo they picked out of an after lunch stop. Second, John Finneran with a bright school size yellowfin.

Today we changed locations and our target species. We were after steady action on yellowfin tuna. What we found was very good yellowfin fishing throughout the day, with yellowtail and wahoo biting at selected times. Our weather is flat calm and predicted to be the same tomorrow so we are staying and will be here again tomorrow. Chip Koehler gets the honors today with a 40 # wahoo.

We awoke this morning to beautiful weather and started looking for wahoo at first light. We scratched throughout the day with enough action to keep everyone on their toes. There were some heartbreaking losses and some miraculous victories. By the end of the day we put together a pretty good score and are moving on for a little more variety.

Brian Maggio came out from Montana and will return with treasured memories and fresh wahoo.

Today we had a great day of fishing. The action was fast and furious as good grade wahoo attacked both casting lures and baits. This lasted from our arrival until mid afternoon. Keith Bridges was the hot stick today landing a daily limit of the coveted speedsters. Our Photo today is of Royal Star rookie, soon to be Royal Star regular, Winchester Norton with his second wahoo ever.

We traveled down all day today in breezy conditions, pleased to be on our current course line. We spent the day preparing our gear and unwinding from the rigors of everyday life ashore. We feel fully prepared for our impending arrival at our first fishing location tomorrow.
