Well I hate to break the news but long range fishing is not always wide open; only about eighty percent of the time. Unfortunately yesterday and today fall into the realm of the remaining twenty percent that can vary anywhere from painfully slow to a fair pick. I would say that yesterday's fishing fell somewhere in between being far from the worst day we have seen on the water but leaving much to be desired in the catching department. Seeing the fish was not the problem; there are plenty of both bluefin and albacore around, but catching the wily, well fed, not biting devils has proven to be a momentous task. Frustrating is how I would best describe the action that consists mainly of short stops where none to a handful of fish are hooked then the fish move on and we follow suit. As reported seeing the fish is not a difficult task with big spots of breaking bluefin and albacore visible at most times, but this only adds to the frustration as we approach adrenaline pumping foamers to be denied while the fish continue crashing within yards of the hull and ignore our offerings. Such are the woes of offshore fishing and the good news in the story is that the fish are around and the weather continues to work in our favor. With tomorrow will come a change of scenery as we target bluefin, albacore, and yellowfin in another zone that we hope will be more productive in the catching department.
