We're licking our wounds after a very long day on the outside that produced a fantastic picture of what is going on with the water and fishing productivity in the zone we worked, although we caught nothing and saw only two spots of bluefin tuna that ran for their lives the instant we got close to them. Wild fish is probably a better description as everyone in the area reported the exact same results when they approached small spots of jumpers and a couple bona fide schools that were in the "run and gun" mode rather than stop and eat. At the very least we are feeling fortunate to have a beautiful catch of yellowtail in the hatch as the amount of fish on board affords us a good buffer against exactly what happened in the production department yesterday. It is fishing, and as we all know, such offshore looking missions come with the territory. With the ultimate goal being some form of tuna to sink out teeth into, we will dedicate our final day again to the offshore effort, but obviously in a different zone far from yesterday's dissapointing area.
