There's nothing quite like a big slice of humble pie to adjust one's perspective. As much as we disdained the flavor yesterday, apparently it was part of a grander scheme necessary to prepare our appetite for better things to come today. And come they did beginning right at dawn and ending after dusk. With nine over two hundred, six from one ninety five to one ninety nine and another thirty one in the one hundred fifty to one hundred ninety pound class, this was one of the finest days of offshore fishing Royal Star has ever seen. The amazing overnight transformation of this zone was spectacular as the picture was obviously different from the get go this morning returning to the mode of last week with plenty of big fish to go around for everybody.
And so it continues. The best giant yellowfin tuna fishing long range anglers have ever seen is showing no signs of abating so prepare accordingly if you are scheduled on our upcoming trips. Providing conditions hold up, there is no telling how long this unbelievable run of big fish will hang around. If one uses history as a measure, this zone continued to produce phenomenal catches of big yellowfin all the way into January of 2003. With the caliber of this action and the unprecedented fishing we have experienced over the past three week period, honestly nothing would surprise me.
As we did a fantastic job of conserving hold space yesterday, we have plenty of bait and hold space for another fine day of catching giant yellowfin tomorrow; amazing how that worked out. So here we go hoping that tomorrow will be another up day on the big fish grounds to finish our time in the lower zone on a good note.
