Apparently it was our turn to pay some dues offshore as we put in another full day of effort in a different zone for scant results. At the very least, we were better off than the previous day with a couple of albacore jig strikes and a few other signs to stop the boat on, but any way one considers it, it was another dreadfully slow day. Regarding the present offshore picture, none of us really know what to venture as it appears that the traditional zones, and areas off the beaten path, simply have yet to develop. My core sentiment at present is that time will tell, and I know that seems to be a dodge, but most times the truth is that we don't know, and have no other options than to keep working at it and wait for the inevitable change to occur. That conditions, and fishing, will change is the only certain part of the equation, and in the present case, that fact is what drives our optimism.
Speaking of change, it is time for Captain Toussaint to take a round at the helm so look for his daily reports to cotinue during the upcoming weeks. If anyone can make it happen, it is old "lucky" himself, so watch the reports for good fishing news soon.
