Well, things change. This time Larry's grandson had a workplace accident. He fractured his head yesterday afternoon. He was at the hospital all night and Tommy is doing alright today. He may be released but needs to be monitored for several days so Larry is not on the trip.

I guess I'm up.
Asking for a few prayers for Tommy. Larry is handling it well but really needs to be home.

Prayers for Tommy.

That's amazing how things happen.

Just be careful David .... we need you next week. There is sure nothing wrong with chunking for tuna and saving the shoulder. I've caught lots of tuna that way .... and some big ones too.

Good luck.

Home at last. 17-18 fishermen so the boat wasn't too crowded. Total count on YFT was 17. All but one was caught on the first night of fishing. Spent almost all of the time at Perdido with a short excursion to the Canyons. Fish were caught on poppers, halcos, jigs, chunking and trolling. The second night, we never got a bite within 100 feet of the surface. A pod of dolphins had moved in to chase bait, flyers and even a few of the BFTs that we were pulling up. Most of our fish on the second night came on jigs that were dropped down to about 300 ft deep.

Capt Jay and the crew were awesome as always. I got to chat with Capt Jay before heading out on Friday morning and he said that the water temp had just started dropping below 80 degrees. Maybe the fish will start turning on just in time for the Pelican.

Speaking of Pelican, we heard rumors that they tore up the YFT this weekend. Anyone hear any details?

Tiffany ... James & co. did well. Not sure they "tore them up" but they fished Gunnison/Santa Anna the first night and Boomvang/Nancen the second night. They had 10 fishermen and got 27 YF. Like y'all, they had some good ones too (3 @ 100+). They fished alongside James' buddy Timmy on the Dolphin Express who got 31 YF (14 fishermen) fishing about 6 - 7 hours longer. Here's the pic and James comments below ....



Well we just got in from a tough one... Rough enough all trip to prevent any real rest, which always makes it extra plesent. Thank goodness the fishing was extremely slow! Lol

Anyway, pushed out to Santa Ana for the first night... there were fish there but it was a very tough, inconsistant night. Wound up with 7 nice ones and 8 barely keepers for all our efforts. Motored to Nancen for the second half of it. Tons of cudas just shredding everything. Wound up catching 12 more nice ones and headed home at 10pm with 27 yft 66 bft and a dozen cudas. Please, remember it is everyones responsibility to help kill the baracudas when you are out there.



More tuna carnage .....

Here is the group shot and rack from your trip. It was great to see you, David and Joseph again. Can't wait til Friday.





And here is the rack from the Dolphin Express trip ....
