Finally, finally our last day of offshore prospecting paid big dividends in the form of steady action on 20 - 30# yellowfin tuna that were up and biting eager to join us on our northerly trek towards home. This was a day we have been seeking for quite some time as the ocean one day above the southern range of our five day voyages has been scantily supplied with worthy game fish almost this entire summer season. With what we encountered today, this aggravating pattern may have finally changed as there was no shortage of sign around and conditions were perfect for more to come. We will see.
In the meantime we are reveling in our success finally completing a voyage this season with an appropriate end. As I reported, conditions look and feel right for more to come so don't be surprised to see an extension of this success on yellowfin tuna offshore in the weeks to come.
Now it is on to the next voyage as Captain Toussaint takes the helm with Captain Sims as engineer on our first annual Ty's Tuna Charter hosted by long time Royal Star veteran and favorite Ty Breitman. We have been looking forward to this voyage for some time as Ty's fantastic group of anglers is well known for their angling skills and never ending ability to focus on catching fish and having a good time. Look for Randy's reports to continue following departure tomorrow.
