What a remarkable contrast in weather between yesterday and today with the remnants of Hurricane Howard transforming our usual flat calm Guadalupe paradise into a breezy confused mess featuring a hearty south swell and short mixed seas. There was even a little morning rain to round out the picture and send our saturated kites cartwheeling into the drink. The good news: the fish hardly skipped a beat beginning to bite just after daylight and other than a brief mid day lull remaining steady all the way through dark. Suffice to say that following today's success we are more than satisfied with our luck at the island and are in the coveted position again to take the long shot and prospect for glory offshore. What would really propel this already fantastic trip into the ultimate category is a shot at trophy bluefin or perhaps even a few bigeye. With money in the bank in the form of a huge load of fish, we are once again taking the long shot tomorrow hoping for a crack at a few trophies as well as lay some groundwork for our upcoming trips.
