Today we worked offshore. We had a slow morning,highlighted by a finning swordfish that we watched under the bow for a few minutes. The cameras were snapping full speed as this bright purple denizen of the deep cruised along the surface unperturbed by our presence. We also had some short stops on smaller yellowfin that kept everyone on their toes.
In the afternoon we found a more lively area and put together a nice score on 18 - 30 # yellowtail. At times the action was hot and heavy, with everything in the water getting bit.
