Not exactly the beginning we were looking for as the morning broke with sloppy, unsettled weather and a very different feel than our prior three days offshore. It took about three hours to realize that the fine fishing for jumbo albacore and big yellowfin was not in the cards today and very well may be elusive until conditions change or the fish show up somewhere else. Of course these things do happen, and are expected, as the old saying of " it's called fishing, not catching" comes into play. Thankfully for us and the fleet, the good fishing for quality yellowtail and now good sized dorado is readily available on kelps saving the day when the albacore and yellowfin go off the bite. That is exactly how our day played out and now we are heading down the line relishing the open water and world of opportunity on our bow.
