As projected the Bluefin zone today expanded into something completely different - the real deal;
different size classes of fish and a staggering abundance that so often manifests in the face of classic
Bluefin conditions. Full moon soon coming combined with an approaching stretch of flat calm means only
one thing - float time; the bottom comes up and what were various scattered spots only a few days prior
become something much, much more.
The guys on the grounds today were in the thick of them stopping and going all day long. Production was
strong and potential was tremendous; even with the inevitable, sickening arrival of the "flying circus".
The bottom line is this: it is time to go fishing, and time to take note of the time of year in reference
to future voyages - if one enjoys catching Bluefin tuna. It is so regular, enough so that it is common;
this time of the year coincides with the arrival, or accessibility, of the offshore Bluefin, albacore,
and even yellowfin in some warmer seasons.
It is time to go fishing. We have space on the final June 24th - June 30th six day and will be
scheduling one what appears will be a 2 1/2 day departing Thursday June 14th at 6:00 p.m. returning
Sunday June 17th at 7:00 a.m. If either of these voyages fit the bill give Tracy a call. Today Bluefin
were seen jumping, albeit in small numbers, as close as 100 miles from San Diego. But this is how it
begins. Take our results only three days prior as an example: a few fish seen and caught one day led to
the real deal, in the same area, only two days later. Get ready anglers - here they come.
Rest assured that the real fisherman, the fishing mad man Capt. Toussaint, will be taking full advantage
of the opportunity on tomorrow's upcoming eight day voyage sponsored by Baja Fish Gear. Our favorite So.
Cal. tackle store Ed, Sam, and all the main guys at the shop in Lomita are among the elite, the best of
the best, when it comes to our style of fishing. If these guys get on the fish it will only mean one
thing - bad news for the Bluefin. And I am confident with Capt. Toussaint behind the helm, and the coming
combination of ideal conditions, that they will be on the fish. And I hope with the signs offshore
rapidly developing that any and all able anglers will be too.
Today's photos feature anglers Duke Dixon and Cody Bivatson in Bluefin fishing heaven during the last
couple of go around's on our final stop of the trip. Look for Capt. Toussaint's reports to continue after
my final contribution tomorrow.
