It is all going to go away soon. take advantage while you can. It has been since 2002 that this has happened for us. It has been a great year of fishing. Spiny Lobster season opens on the 27th of this month..Wow! Where has the year gone..............

Go to Vegas. Your luck is better than most everyone else's. We couldn't buy a YF stop yesterday.

Where'd you fish? The day certainly didn't start like friday did for us. Friday we limited before 0800 but kept catching and releasing til 1450. We were thrashed by then. Sat started slower and we had to look hard for paddies holding. But when they did, it was game on! One of the paddies we found later in the day that finished off our bait was just east of that "africa" size paddy people were pounding. That paddy was bigger than anything I've ever seen. Anyway, we found 2 side by side paddies just a mile or so east of it and it had all the YFT you wanted. Killer days people!!!!

funny you mention about taking advantage. i guess mike originally mentioned it. anyway, yes, i keep telling my friends without boats that this is quite possibly a once in a lifetime event for some of us, and that we need to fish as much as possible. i'm actually bugging some of them but it's hard to find people with the time off i have and with the lust for offshore that i have. i don't think they actually understand what's happening right now and just how infrequent these things are. i'm jumping on a 2 day on the pacific dawn tues night and then the day after i come back i'm taking my boat right back down again. i can't get enough. i'm vacuum sealing right now and eating seared belly coated with toasted sesame seeds and dried ginger as i seal fish. i just can't get enough. i just wish my friends understood the significance of this season. :(

Mike,
I understand all too well...unfortunately my boat is down and, although I'm pressing my engine rebuiler and mechanic, I don't know if I will be back up and running in time to get some. If you need a fishing partner.....

Glad you're killing it this year, but I'm trying to figure a scenario where you guys weren't WAY in excess of limits? Especially if all that took place in Mexican waters? If what you are writing is correct, you were 17 over limit on one day and 50 over limit the other.
