We began our voyage on a high note with a fantastic load of bait, a fine group of anglers, and huge expectations following last trip's epic catch and grand finale on trophy bluefin. Oh how quickly things change however as our first day was a huge struggle with very little sign of albacore compared to the past six days and plenty of sign of small bluefin that had zero interest in what we had to offer. Of course changes like this are no surprise to any of us who work out here, but following such a fantastic stretch of good fishing and good weather they are never received well. For all of us out here now there is no choice other than to get out and start over covering new and old ground as a group to get back on some biting fish as soon as possible. In this case we are hoping for sooner rather than later as are down to two days remaining in our trip.
