Headed out of Shelter Island about 0930 Saturday night. Got bait and confirmed our decision to run to the Cross. Buddy boated with Saltdawg. Got to the spot just before grey, and dropped in the jigs. First jig strike around 0630...Albacore. One on jig, one on bait. Back on the troll and hit a paddy for a couple YT. They quit biting so we got back on the troll. We would repeat this pattern most of the day. Boxed that area all day with a stop now and then on our only paddy of the day. Ended up with 4 fat Albacore (28 to 35 pound), 5 YT...farmed a couple, (18 to 24 pounds), and the kicker fish was a small YFT, (app. 10#). We called in Scott, Progress 1, on a good early afternoon bite, and he picked up one or two Albies in the same area. We couldn't get Bill to come outside...he was to busy loading up on some nice YT on paddies a little inside of us. We called it a day, and headed in early. Boat cleaned, fished cleaned, on the trailer and headed home app. 1730. Probably could have scratched a few more if we stayed later but both of us needed to get home early. All of our fish were caught within five miles of where we got the first jig strike in the morning...quite a variety out there right now. Definitely not WFO but there are still a few Albies around if you get lucky. Don't think they will be for long if we continue this warming trend but looks, and sounds like the YFT, and Dodos are moving up. Also lots of YT, and some Dodos on the paddies reported from the fleet coming up the inside yesterday...not many willing to play yet but they are there. Two things I think...moon phase, and they are spawning. All of our YT were full of eggs yesterday. Hopefully they will bite better as the full moon fades later this week. The spawn could keep them busy for a couple weeks though. Seas were flat with 10 to 15 knot breeze...a little popcorn once in a while but overall great day. All fish caught in 68 to 68.3 clean...blue water. Much warmer the closer we got to home. Heard a couple hookups on Marlin, and watched one from about a 1/4 mile away exploding on bait of some type. I think it may have been a school of small YFT like the one we caught. White water everywhere, and this thing would just surge right on the surface for 30 to 40 feet at a time. Pretty cool show. Saw a little Pod of Dolphin but they sunk out when we tried to get into them to troll, and that's about it. Hot jigs yesterday were the old standby Zuchini broomtail, and the hot one for me this season so far, a Star Lure Zuchini Knocker. The Channel Island Chovie Fish Trap tricked a couple YT into biting on the troll by of our Paddy du Jour. Curtis has the pics so you will just have to wait for those. Good luck to anyone headed out. Go get some!
