CONDOR CARNAGE big Dodo's, YF and Limits of YT AGAIN
Well I'm beginning to sound like a broken record but IT GOT BETTER!
We rolled off the dock at 6pm Capt Scott,2nd Mike, Rob and Mike2
on deck, Tad back in the gally and after bait, meeting it off pedal
down for our start about 125mi south. Few paddys into the morn
KAHWEEEE BIG Dorado 20-25 Rocked several of us, Norm got his,
and Frank, I had a slab crowbarred my 700M for 15 mins only to jump
and throw a circle hook OUCH! We picked off some yellows then
once again we found THE ONE, the paddy of dreams, 100's of
yellowtail all sizes and dorado CHARGED the boat, every rod all
29 bent in a 30 minute non-stop blood bath RIPPER that filled
the sacks until Scott yelled NO MAS!!! Take a break! Now time to
let the deckhands tag some 150+ fish and into the brine hold, we
headed for the warmer water temp break and hunt for TUNA. Only
11am we had all day to look, the best part of these 1.5 day trips.
HOOOOOOK-UPPPPPPP and it was game on, as several of us nailed
some fat Yellowfin in the 20's after some kick butt action-FUN!
More jigstrikes and paddys nailed even more big dorado, yellowfin,
and to my suprise after dropping back a big dine on the slide a
nice grade 18lb Yellowtail ( they're not all rats out here folks!)
I mean damn, I'd have traded for a dodo or another yellowfin-geez!
All in all on a hot sunny day, this might have been the most fun
trip of the whole season, even all summer. One thing for sure,
some of us that have been out on Condor the last 3 weeks, have
enough fish to last...until NEXT summer. Even the mailman!
All too soon the sun set into the ocean in a giant ball, and it was
time to HIT the hot showers, wash off the blood and sit down to
Tad's killer Chicken Teriyaki & Veggie Stir Fry killer dinner. WHEW!!
THANKS AGAIN TO THE WHOLE CREW FOR ANOTHER AWSOME TRIP!
THE FISH ARE MANY AND THE ACTION IS HOT! GET OUT THERE NOW!

Ron, I added a few more photos to the mix. What an awesome trip. In addition to that epic fishing trip, (with a much better grade of fish), was.....the rush on those stops n kelps......with a super crew, and the other visuals that took place, thoughout the whole day.
Check out that sunset......and Moon rising. Oh Yes!, that next pic IS the moon right at sunset about 6:45pm. The best of both worlds. Seems like the season is just beginning, not ending.
Lots of sea life out there yesterday. Not only those dolphins putting on a couple of shows throughout the day (10-15' leaps) but that pod of humpback whales was rare, and a first for me. So glad I got a Yellowfin.
Hopefully, there will be enough to do it again Mon. nite, as they are on the schedule again for next week. M-W-F nite.
