Motored out to US waters last night arriving at our spot around 3:30 am. Was hoping to corral some BFT around the boat during the night but was not happening. We trolled our asses off in 71/72 deg water with all the right stuff for nada. We finally found a small bush that produced some fish - dodo, tails, bft & yft. When this spot dried up we trolled again for nada and got a call from a bud with some info - motored to the numbers and caught bft & yft.

We had enough fish by 9:00am so we decided to scout a different area - caught a couple more yft's and headed in.

NO TROLL FISH - not even an attempt to taste a jig.

Bottom Line - 5 of us brought home 9 bft, 13 yft, 3 yt & one dodo.

Great group of knowledgeable guys that were super cool to fish with - this by itself makes for a great day IMO.

Here's a few random pics.

    It's seems to me that these fish are much more interested in bait then they were a week ago. Caught both my Yft on bait on Friday as well. No jig strikes.

    Its becuase there is bait now. Two weeks.ago all there was chovie. Deans would have worked a few weeks back too. Every tuna I have caught lately has been plugged with brailed deans. The sports brailing the dean has really got their attention now.

    ^ its becuase we have deans now. Two weeks ago all there was chovie. The sports have been chumming like.crazy and they have a taste for them now. All the tuna I have caugjt lately have been plugged with brailed deans. They were hitting mac before the.deans arrived just most people were not taking the time to make bait.

    My boat? A 52' Hatteras? don't think so! My retirement income is good but not THAT good! This is a boat a friend of mine runs - this was a rare crew trip.
