It was one of those mornings that lived up to all fishing expectations on a long range voyage and then some. We were well prepared with good information from our colleagues and geared up to take full advantage of what we hoped to encounter.
When we did finally arrive at the Promised Land we found primo tropical conditions, an ideal fishing setup, and hoards of voracious yellowtail that hammered any and everything presented until our departure. For sheer volume of fish and caliber of action, there is no way it could have been better.
Needless to say we had our fill of yellowtail in fairly short order and passed the remainder of the day in search mode working up the line focusing on trophy class fish. I can't say we found much to report following our fantastic morning but the day was enjoyed in fine leisure as we made a striking scenic tour on our way north.
With the final goal of offshore success on yellowfin tuna, we will spend our final day again in search mode looking for a strong finish with more variety. Decent working weather is in the forecast so we will see if the fish gods continue to smile upon us tomorrow.
