    Well we ended up staying at the rocks all day. I had a lucky day with lots of wahoo as did many other angles. Nice grade of these speeders that nailed the JRI jigs and Capt. Jimmy bombs in almost every color but green was the hottest color. Live bait was
    Not that productive with only a handful caught. Total today for the Excel was 106.

    I caught a couple on the iron. If you get down to it I think what really works great was FAST. The faster you reel the more wahoo nail your lures.

    We’re tuna fishing tomorrow. Weather continues to be great. Everyone is having a great time here on the Excel. Tonight dinner was fresh wahoo with a mango sauce. Simply incredible tasting. More on the water reports to come.

    Another cow hits the deck of the Excel. This fish went about 223. I might be off but later the Excel will have the total on there web page. Fly lined bait on a 80 lb outfit

    80# seems to be the new 130#

    In a flyline application I think 80lb is the sweet spot for max abrasion resistance combined with light enough line to allow the bait to swim.

    You might be right. With the recent reports of 80# line fish I'm sure there will be a lot of people dropping down, be nice to also know of the people that lose fish on 80% also.

    The “light line” was responsible for some big ones on the recent Rooster trip, Lower Banks. Like a Super Cow at 355! Stamina will come into play as well as confidence in our gear, connections and knots. Sano will be the name of the game. Pretty much a drift fishing deal or slide one back if run’n’gun. I’m so frickin ready to get on the boat!

    Another cow hits the deck of the Excel. That’s 3 for our 1st full day of fishing for tuna. This one came in on 130 chunk. 203 was the mark. A few of the 70-120 makes a day you want to fish. Naps are good in the middle of the day but you might miss a bit. Stay tuned more to come.
