Without a doubt the most beautiful day of offshore weather we have seen all season with greasy, balmy conditions gracing the effort to stay on bluefin and albacore. I am pleased to report that our efforts were successful both in the afternoon and evening with very good action on jumbo 30 - 40# albacore with a handful of 30 - 40# bluefin mixed in. The only difficult part of our day was the effort to avoid hoards of twelve to eighteen pound bluefin that appeared everywhere in the mood to eat. As we have a beautiful catch of big albacore already in the hatch, we are focusing strictly on quality and although this is a sound plan, yesterday it was much easier said than done. Suffice to say that we saw plenty but convincing them to bite is another, unfortunately familiar story. It would be criminal to complain however as we are catching plenty otherwise and basking in the glorious, flat calm weather.
