It's probably better to let the pictures do the talking today as we caught almost zero on the long northerly trek. Not that we had big visions of production; we were prepared for this as the weather was up and we drew an inside line to avoid the worst of it, but it would have been nice to grapple at least a little something. All told by day's end we were in good position. The sea state backed off enough that we busted a move outside for a late afternoon shot. Still, it didn't happen.

Two things made the day's results, or lack thereof, easier to tolerate. One - we had to travel up regardless. Two - it was necessary to make tracks towards the promising offshore zone above. In short, this was a positioning move with the ultimate goal of reaching the grounds tomorrow. We'll see how this well contrived strategy plays out. It looks good on paper.

Photos for the day feature angler Ray Ochoa and Captain Brian Sims with a beautiful "premium" yellowtail taken on the surface iron and long rod, young Matthew Kui with Captain Sean Bickel and his nice "primo", and long time Royal Star veteran Dave McGrouther enjoying the moment pulling on a good one.
