Today we worked back up towards home looking for yellows and stretching out our fishing time. We had beautiful weather for looking. We saw a good number of spots of yellows, but they were reluctant to bite our offerings. Our best stop was for eight of the 15 - 19 pound fish.

We'll see what Capt. Brian Sims has to report from the local offshore grounds yesterday. In the meantime I still have the pleasure of sharing photos. I have yet to dent the number of images taken during the last voyage so I'll keep them coming until the regular schedule resumes in a couple more weeks. Today's sequence details the process of dragging a 150# class yellowfin tuna around the stern in position for scooping. In the case of the giants, we bring the scoop to them. But, we have discovered that it is actually quite simple to drag them around when using heavy equipment and facilitates the process with less difficulty for everyone at the rail. The subject in today's sequence is Carlos Sanchez from the National Observer Program in Mexico. In addition to being a great guy, Carlos has a tremendous background in fisheries spending the last five years working at sea on everything from large tuna vessels to small coastal shrimp boats. As evidenced in these photos, he thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to fish with us on Royal Star while overseeing tagging activities. This is the second voyage he has joined us on the the delight of anglers and crew alike. Enjoy today's shots and have a fine Sunday.
