We had a great day in every respect. Very good morning action on 18 - 25# yellowtail followed by a perfect afternoon scratch on "primos". A more ideal day of yellowtail angling, complimented by the flat calm conditions we have become so accustomed to around the islands, could not be found. We are ecstatic. Not only about our day of angling either; reports from the offshore grounds indicate big happenings relative to the past four weeks. A revival perhaps? The beginning of a September to remember? We'll see. For now at least we are heading in the right direction. Quality, 30 - 50# yellowfin, decent grade bluefin, and a smattering of "fatso", 25 - 35# albacore are on our bow. At least, they were today.

With sufficient yellowtail in the hatch we are heading out regardless. Regardless of the fish, regardless of the weather - that right now is none too good. Oh well. There are those inevitable times when the tab comes due. We are paying right now. Pocket change though. This is not bad at all. Plenty of bumpin' and jumpin' as we work up with visions of tuna dominant in our mind. Nothing to arrest forward progress.

A couple of great photo's to share from today's fishing. The first features Royal Star veteran Martin Rudolph with his 39.8# yellowtail and a clear message for his friend Anthony who could not make the trip. Though the print may be small in the photo, the shirt says it all. Hope to see you next year Anthony. Also long time Royal Star veteran Dave Bookin, who was absolutely on fire the entire day, is featured with Captain Gregg Tanji and another fine, 35# class premium yellowtail. Have a great day!
