Sat. kind of a Guy Harvey moment
We launched right after Cha Ching and trailered up at the end of the day right after him an alluminator. A slow day over all except for some fun about 2 miles south west of the 421 spot. We are trolling west and spot diving terns and troll towards them..then we see breaking and boiling fish and go into the fire drill. oh and what a fire drill. I was fishing with Kryzs and an old childhood buddy from back in Ohio, I haven't seen in over 20 years, Andy. He has never been offshore and had to endure a sloppy slow morning for the first time, he had never baited a hook in his life but he had a great attitude and after this he was hooked. Kryzs had actually got some sleep the night before so he was on it. Anyhow, after alot of loud encouragement from me, we were cranking in the trollers as fast as we could, I spun the stern right into the action. In about a 200 sf area we had a paddy, diving porpoise, diving turns and boiling yellows, man it was like one of those Guy Harvy or Chuck Byron paintings. We brailed bait and got our sardines into the action. The wind and waves shoved us off fast, but we let the baits spool out. Kryzs hooked up and we land a schoolie yellow, get it aboard and the boiling mass has moved we run to it drop and drop bait again, Krysz and I hook up again, Kryzs ends up with just a sardine head and I wind up with a sardine with 2 deep parrallel slices about an inch apart on each side of the fish. It seemed like maybe those marks would match the marks from a porpoise mouth, perhaps someone here would know. Then it all went quiet so we trolled north then trolled the butterfly. We gave that up and ran for home.
After about five minutes we stopped on a paddie and I picked up a decsent yellow. Stopped on 2 more dry paddies, then the third one Kryzs hooks up and hands the rod to Andy and eventually the fish got farmed but he got to enjoy a stout fish pulling and he was thrilled. Well Andy is hooked on saltwater fishing. Nice chatting with you all on the radio too. It was a long slow sloppy day with one electric moment, can't wait till next week!

We had that going on all week... Lots of boiling fish and only 1-2 bites.
I can't believe 60 views and no replies to your report. Lots of lurkers and non posters...

Jim glad you got a couple for such a tough day of fishing. Tried to pick you up on the radio, but, we were having radio problems.
I'm a mushroom cloud makin mother fucker................
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Nothing like boiling YT's to get your heart pounding.
When they don't bite it makes you start looking for those 1/4 sticks that might be left over from the 4th.

Nice job showin' the out-of-towner some hardcore, the fish have really been off and on lately, so a captains skill is no small resource on the water. Great Job.
