We were thoroughly satisfied in the albacore grounds today but the action was far from the gluttonous "wood" style fishing we have enjoyed the past several trips. Of course in most cases, although the aquarium style, no skill required pace is memorable and fun, the several steady morning stops today where the action was very good but manageable produces the same results in the hatch and a much less anxiety on deck. All in all we had a great day of albacore fishing that was once again highlighted by the tremendous thirty five to forty five pound grade of fish that has graced our fleet the entire season. With good fortune continuing to follow us, we are on course to the outside island hoping for favorable conditions and luck on the beautiful quality yellowfin tuna and yellowtail that have made such a fantastic showing over the past month. As Captain Toussaint and I are sharing the helm duties this voyage tomorrow is my day to answer today's standard so the pressure is on to produce.
