Headed out of SB at 6 am. Made macs easy in 40 feet in front of the pier. Also caught little yellows on the sabiki, beyond unreal! Made 20 pieces and headed to Yellowbanks. 2 miles out of the harbor my steering gives out, hydraulic line has a tear so I caulk it and hope for the best. Finally get to yellowbanks area at 8. My buddy already has a 5LB YFT onboard so I'm stoked thinking it's about to turn on. I see the Aloha, Sea Jay, Island Spirit and tons of Marlin boats working the preserve and yellowbanks proper. From here for the rest of the day I trolled all over from the preserve to almost around Blue Banks. I didn't see any Marlin, although I saw one hooked up. Trolled tons of ponies for nada finally I headed out to where my buddy had his only fish only to be turned around by a helicopter saying they were doing live fire drills, oh well guess it wasn't my day. I decided to use the remaining macs to catch a YT at the rigs and lost 3, 2 to the rig and 1 to a seal. I certainly hope I am able to get out this weekend and get an 805 Marlin. Also hope someone scored today.
