In the Meat! We caught 3 out of 4 bigeye bites today, up to 187#, along with 5 yellowfin and a couple dolphin. A great day of fishing!
We left the Inlet with one other boat headed to the 680, well north of the fleet. After we set out, the fleet was getting some bites down on the Point, and my running partner deserted us to chase the bite. We stayed and hooked a bigeye, 115#. We started fishing south, and hooked one out of two bigeyes, 135#. After spotting the fleet approaching, we turned back North, and hooked three more bigeyes. We pulled a hook, broke another off at the boat, and landed one more, 147#. Not a bad day’s work!
Yes we do!
Sometimes you gotta go the extra 35 miles! There was some good fishing North of the inlet, normally out of our range today. We took a chance, and ran up there after a late start. Two hours of fishing and we caught a limit of nice yellowfin. The ride was worth it!
We had a beautiful day offshore today with Dr Frank and crew. It was great meeting you, and I hope to see you again next year.
