    We left the harbor at 6:30 after getting two nice scoops of bait. Bar was lumpy so we cut the S jetty even though we were heading West. The water was lumpier than hoped, we averaged 22nts for the 75 mile run out which took 3+ hours. Water improved a little but got worse towards the end. We stopped about 40 miles out for a bio break and setup the boat, we were devastated to see the bait pump was off with most the bait dead. After many 4 letter exclamations we decided we were gonna make dead bait work. Got out 75 miles and went on a slow troll with swim baits. After an hour of nothing we saw birds and jumpers. The jig men got two on and we were then able to get 4 on dead bait. We caught 4 more chasing jumpers. We took to the radio Around 2:00 to ask if we could buy anyone's remaining live bait if anyone was heading in soon. @Cornfed boat saved our day as they gave us half a scoop of livelies and his buddy boat did the same as they were plugged and headed in. They did a great goldfish bag job for the exchange. Can't thank em enough, I am willing to pay em if either wants to send me PayPal. After we got the bait we went on the hunt, we found a bunch of birds at 3:30 and the game was on. We landed 17 big fish. I had to threaten to cut lines at 5:30 to get rods out of the water. Earlier this year we caught 38 and had space to spare. Yesterday we had no more space after stowing 27 fish, the fish keeping getting bigger. We caught my boats biggest ever yesterday but we did not have a scale so it will continue to grow. We ended up being 80 miles from port and ran in at 35 on greasy lake water, the sun set about 5 miles from the bar. Awesome day with a great crew. Big thanks to Mark Coleman for pointing us in the right direction. Anybody fish SW yesterday?

    Nice to have bruthas on the water to help when you need it!
    A hand to CornFed for hooking you up with some livies and Mark Colman for pointing you in the right direction. :appl:
    Mark has been so good about sharing the wealth, there has to be something we can do to make his day!:cheers:
    Did you go straight out West? Looks like there has been some warm water closer in the last few days.
    Good job, by the way on sticking with it until 5:30 out there. When the sun on your six disappears, it starts to get a little harder to see the crab pots.

    Sounds like a great day, sorry to miss out! We ended up east of a 40' restricted Columbia bar and had to make due with a bunch of hatchery coho. Those that made it out headed NW (SW of Westport) and apparently did well.

    NIce lookin water. Definitely made the run pay off. Wouldn't caught any sitting on the dock! Nothing wrong with a slow slug out to end with that kind of water.

    Congrats.

    Where'd you find your fish? We are headed out this weekend.

    Nice report. Great to see the brotherhood helping each other out once again. I think you may have passed me out there. I decided to stop at about 70 miles due to fuel concerns.... Looks like I shoulda kept going.

    One of the fat piggies... And while I may not be as big as Eric AKA Hawksfan75, I am over 6 ft. Great day, and a great crew. Tons of fun on an incredibly flat sea. tuna!.jpg

    I was burning up after that first fish, and my grundens are too thick for summer fishing. Also Kurt said he was into feet, so....

    That's a pig for sure!!!

    Lots of toads showing up this year, I saw a gal weighing in a huge 38 pound Albacore at the weigh station the other day, (for the charters derby), and it dwarfed her, just huge.

    We didn't have a scale handy on the boat, however while carking last night, after I had started (cut the belly off) I drug out the bathroom scale and that piggie in the pic weighed 33 lbs. guessing 35 whole. we had at least five that size or larger. I know that Dave's big pig was at least another inch or two longer than the one pictured. Thanks to Halibut Herb and Cornfed! And Steve and the rest of the "Hawaiian Tropic".... Inside Joke!
