We had a nice scratch going this morning but unfortunately the afternoon fell flat on it's face. We ended up with 16 fish from 130-195 with three over 200lbs. Needless to say an incredible grade of fish, which makes up somewhat for the lack of numbers. The lack of wind and voracious sharks definitely put a hurt on our tally, hopefully conditions give us a break tomorrow.
I wanted to supplement Randy's post today with some information on developing local fishing that sounds very good for our upcoming five through eight day trips in June.
Significant sign of Bluefin mixed in size from small (twenty pounds) all the way up to two hundred pounds, a good early season signal of twenty to twenty five pound albacore, very good sign of yellowtail on the coast and at the coastal islands, twenty pound yellowfin tuna already spotted and caught ABOVE Benitos.
What is going on here? I'll tell you what I see. Another set up for a incredible June of long range fishing; potentially fantastic for big bluefin. I mention this because it just so happens that we now have four openings on our June 19th - 24th five day voyage coming up in three weeks. This rumor about Royal Star being full all the time is exactly that; a rumor. If a group or any of you have time to squeeze in a June five day, get on this trip. You literally could not have a better set up for offshore fishing. The fishing time frame of the voyage is exactly four days before the full moon into the full; perfect timing for offshore fishing and my personal favorite. With the present signs of fish and offshore water conditions, every indication points to very good fishing on the horizon. Give us a call in the office if you can make it as we would love to have you along on what we believe will be fantastic trip.
