In the South Pacific & Indian Oceans that's called a Spanish Mackerel-lateral line & all.
How's Victor? Last I saw him was the day before Odile landed.Hi Larry, I can't add much good news, other than there were lots of rumors -- tuna north around the 88, and tuna and marlin south (Frailes, maybe Gordo Banks?)
I CAN say things felt a lot more alive today than yesterday. Couldn't find bait this morning, which didn't bode well, so we started jigging -- had a dozen bites in a couple hours, landed four nice Pargo, lost a few more (still knocking off the rust), and some Skipjack -- they were EVERYWHERE today, we ended up with a dozen or so. Maybe not the most glamorous of days, but I had a fucking blast!!! I'd take today, over trolling all day for a Marlin, anytime! I brought down some new jigs (FC Llabos), and had "that feeling" about one in particular. And it crushed! Victor chose his favorite, and I had 7-8 hookups before he had one. I'll never be half the angler he is, but it's nice to know my intuition is decent!
Between the chatter and signs of life, could be the start of something? Curious to read reports over the next few days -- I plan on some surfcasting. Best and saludos -- Dave
