The morning started out slick calm with a little roller and stayed that way all day which made for very easy running. Our first stop was to catch some live bait, we pulled up to the can and two big bull dolphin swam out. All it took was one cast with the gurgler and we got one on. The other one wouldn't touch the second bait we pitched to him. But he spit the hooks five minutes into the fight. After catching some live bait we headed 60 miles out to one of the floaters. 1st bait out we hooked into another bull dolphin that thru the hook on his second jump. That was two fish gone. Started to think it was going to be one of those days. Well, in the end we caught another bull dolphin and got him in the boat, Next two fish were yellowfin tuna about 65-70lbs. which we got in the boat as well. After that it went cold. We headed back north to find the rip which had been building up good in the afternoon, but when we got there it was scattered all over the place. Sometimes you can pull thru the scattered stuff and still pull out some decent fish. Yesterday it didn't happen, so we called it a day. Looks like the weather is shutting us down for a few days. Back out on the next calm day. By the way the new boat is an incredible fishing machine and very fast for a cat boat. So far the new Evinrude E Tecs are everything Bombardier said they would be.
