The action we were hoping for not only met but exceeded our expectations at Guadalupe today with non stop fishing in one form or another beginning about one hour after our daylight arrival and lasting through the first dinner call at dark. The pace was perfect for this type of fishing with one to four fish hooked at any given time while the great equalizer made up for any angling deficiencies distributing the catch among every angler on board. Of course when I mention the great equalizer I am referring to the kite that was in perfect form today kicking out a full rotation and then some. It was a welcome fact also as the conditions were brutal for sardine fishing the majority of the day with steady breeze, a healthy lump from hurricane Howard, and varying current direction and velocity all combining to swing the boat erratically sometimes as much as fifty or sixty degrees. As reported the kite in this case was ideal presenting the bait in the perfect zone while overcoming the challenging conditions. In addition, the kite bites were spectacular providing hearty entertainment as well as fishing fun for everyone today. Naturally our game plan in to remain at the island for at least one more day and tomorrow Captain Toussaint is back in the drivers seat so we will see what tricks the master has up his sleeve.
