With plenty of time to reflect upon our previous day's success outside Clarion, I am overjoyed at the thought of expanded options this fantastic day of fishing has provided. Of course I am not shallow enough to believe that every time we fish these areas will be successful, but I am certain that our success yesterday was far from a stroke of dumb, once in a lifetime luck. In fact, we saw similar signs on our February tagging voyage at Socorro, San Benedicto, and Clarion islands. What I believe it boils down to is this: if we, meaning Royal Star or any other long range vessels, put forth effort in these zones, we will make catches on good sized yellowfin, including two hundred pound class fish. Think of what this means to our ten day fly down/fly back voyages from Cabo San Lucas next year. How about those dreaded occasions at Hurricane bank when the fish are off the bite and the prevailing sentiment is one of pure doom as no options, other than to sit and hope and pray, are available. No More. I sincerely hope this will open a new chapter in our fishery and provide many more anglers not only the opportunity to fish for trophy yellowfin tuna, but a reason to feel optimistic about our transforming winter fishery. I know I do, and I can't wait to get back there and fish the way I enjoy the most. Hunting offshore schools of tuna is by far the most challenging form of fishing we do, but affords the greatest sense of victory when success is found. There are going to be lot's of satisfied anglers down here in years to come, and I can't wait to be a part of it.
