Due for a calm ride and some fish. Got the calm ride. A long friggin' one. Looked for paddies while draggin' for tuna. Heard about a couple jig strikes here and there. Everybody's metering fish but can't get them to come up. Paddies were few and far between with plentiful bait, some speculated too plentiful. Couldn't get fish to go when I saw them...Did see one boat stop on a NICE paddie and they got at least 3 dodos. I hope they post. Early afternoon see 3 pairs of military small boats haulin' ass. A little later another pair. The US Navy evacuated a 5 mile area by the 230 for live fire exercises. Hearing the noise from a distance while fishing a paddie, I did not want to be there. Left about 2:30 and get to the 9M. Navy evacuating area for live fire...WTF? Had to stop and let a sub go across my heading. Jeez. I hope the guys that stuck it out till later have something better to report. It was one fantastic day to be on the water and so much better ride there and back than last Thur.
