Sorry guys, I posted this in the wrong section earlier this morning. Fished with my son and friend David yesterday. First stop was the 371 got there around 6:30, lots of birds working, saw some BFT's puddling around the area but didn't have any luck getting them to go. Did manage a small Mako that once hooked gave us a little air show which was cool. Had some nice guy on a boat called "Tight Lines" run over our lines and strip about 50 yards of spectra off my reel. Clueless. After that decided to make a move. Headed south. About 15 miles south/south East of the 371 we ran into the fleet. Trolled around for a bit and saw many of the sport boats with their kits up and drift fishing. Found a spot close enough but far enough where we would not be "That guy". Put up our kite and a nice mac, had four lines off the windward side of the boat 30#, 40# and 50# rigs. We were metering fish 40 to 90ft. You can see example in pic. So we used the rubber band method with our rigs to get our baits down. 3 and 4oz sinkers did the trick holding them down. Unfortunately during our drift we were not paying enough attention to the kite and it got bit, but think it was a shark or seal...clean with just the head left. After about an hour into our drift a smaller CC off our bow hooked up and was in for a battle. They drifted close enough that we were able to talk to them. Apparently hooked up on 20lb. They stayed around us and I did my best to keep our lines and kite away from them so we wouldn't be the reason they lost the fish. They took turns handing the rod back and forth to the three of them. We watched them for about 35 mins and got the fish close several times. Unfortunately they lost the fish, don't really know what happened but you could see the defeat in their body after it was over. Been there and done that. We decided to put out some lighter lines to see if we could manage a bite since we were not seeing much luck. Within 10 mins of having my 20# in the water I was on. Lasted all of 35 seconds and almost spooled me, I had to put some thumb pressure to try and turn the bastard. No luck. Snapped off. My buddy David did manage to get a small blue shark but that was it for us this day. We saw plenty of fish being pulled over the rails of the big boats. If I were going in the next couple of days. Find the fleet and set up using 30# with 3 to 4 oz, chum the heck out of the water once you see them on your sounder. We moved once and tried flying the yummy...looked great but no luck. Weather was a little snotty in the afternoon. So we left heading back in hopes of finding a paddy with YT. No such luck. The further north we went the water temp got cold. We were fishing in 67 degree water...by the time we got to the islands it was 64. Hope this helps some if they are heading out over the next few days. Good luck.
