Classic Clipperton style fishing today with afternoon bird schools producing the majority of the action. Again seventy to one hundred thirty pounds was the size average with only a couple of standouts in the one hundred seventy pound class. Prior to the incredible afternoon show of thousands of birds pursuing schools of jumping tuna we took advantage of the morning lull to enjoy some world class snorkeling in the island's pristine waters. I always marvel at the fact that we can be snorkeling or walking on the beach at some part of the day and catching trophy yellowfin within minutes of our welcome diversion from the fishing pursuit. Other than Panama, there really is no where we travel that offers such a unique opportunity to mix in a few activities other than fishing without sacrificing anything in the fishing department.
Once again the end of the day found us wealthy in quantity but still lacking in the trophy department. The trip is not over yet however and we have a few more tricks up our sleeve before the final call tomorrow night.
