Trolled Hidden Bank west, to north of the 1010 Trench, to the 390 for absolutely nothing! Trolled for 6 hours using almost every color in feathers, plugs, etc...you name it we through it out there for nothing. Saw one other boat and a possible tuna spotting plane all day and that was it...Should of took that as a hint, anyways? Had a goodtime with my cuz, uncle and family friend, but fish would have made it better...

Seas were 2-3, wind chopped washing machine style from all directions, reminded me of the Gulf, no bait anywhere, we stopped on a couple of paddies, saw a nice yellow that messed with us for about 20 minutes and then we rolled on...Wind needs to settle...Soon!

The fishing is very hit and miss right now. It seems as were in a transition mode right now.

Ryan - it sounds like you went right instead of left. Apparently, there has been a decent bite above the Inner Bank. We'll see what happens today (Wed). Should pick up if the wind ever lies down. Marty

at least you got out there and tried brother! From the info I've gotten, I was told that the seiners were out there scooping up everything and wiped out the whole school that everybody was getting their tuna from this past couple of weeks!
These guys are serious, they're making their living from the fishing grounds out there and the way the economy has hit them too, they'll hit everything that comes their way this year! Catfood is made from albacore tuna too!

I would have traded my day for yours. "No Fish" reports are just as important as WTFO reports.

Thanks...

Headshot,
Your absolutely right. The seiners are working the school hard. We were around three different groups on a hugh school and these guys were working it hard last Wednesday. Three spotter planes, 2 heli's and you know the fish are screwed. They probably scooped up a 5 acre school of Albie/bluefins in 12 hours. That's just sick and very sad.

It was reported rough again today. Sporties seen working the area Marty Morris is talking about 31.38 to 31.41 117.10 - 117.14 Counts are very scratch. Wish this wind would come down!

Buoyweather is calling for wind all week. :(.

The Bluefin that are up north are pretty much mopped up or they headed out of the area yesterday. None seen today from anyone I talked to.

Marlin in the warm water on the ridge.

302,371,425,390. Don't waste your time! Nothing seen this week. Paddys empty!

When will this offshore season really start???

Jason just summed up everything absolutely perfectly. I keep seeing people asking about where to go, what they are doing wrong...more people should read this post.

Spot on, I'm going to wait a couple more weeks before I head out again, try to keep it closer to home next time, hopefully the wind lays down...
