freedom boat club; light load open party where the fish are
My most awesome deckhand gave me the dope on where the Bluefin were yesterday so we headed to the West End this morning. chased lots of small grade Bluefin jumping out of the water, eating all of our live chum right next to the boat and splashing us when they landed without eating anything we offered them with a line and hook attached. chased them around for five to six hours for no luck. Tried everything. we weren't the only ones in fact we didn't see the single tuna hooked for the first 6 hour or so hours of the day. made a decision to run back into the island from the Northwest positions we were given and when we got to the major bank for the island saw some bent poles so we set up a long drift outside of our neighbors and two casts with hot Dean's= 2nice grade 40 to 50 lb bft!

Before setting up on the long drift we dropped down to 20 lb fluoro with some sort of trout hook I dug out of my tackle box I guess it was a # 4 copper mustad but barely looked like an earring on sardines nose.

Stay closer to the island...

We metered huge fish while trolling into the island to look for yellows...only found fun light workout bones galore.

Sushi off the knife tonight was amazing!

Sorry for the voice to txt translation typos in the original post, long day and i wanted to get our info out. Gps #s in meter pick is where we caught them after a lot of hunting.

It was a zoo out there today. Don't even need GPS spots, just look for the gazillion private boats surrounding the cattle boats.
