    Underway today with 19 anglers in good weather and a great vibe. News of the day is the live bait we took on was beautiful, nice large sardines and some mackerel mixed in. Also have plenty of chunk bait pre-cut, more than I've ever seen, ready to go. Will report more as we know it.

    Go get some big ones, Basil! 19 on the Excel is a great limited load amount on a 17 day trip. Most will have one person per stateroom. Not cheap at $7500, but worth it if you have the budget...

    Went through 12 hours of rain but this morning it's looking clear and we have sunshine on the horizon. We'll be fishing tomorrow. All is well on the XL.

    Steady action all day on the tuna with a 218 onboard for Bob Motheral, and many in the 60-150 range, plus 20 or so wahoo without a very long effort. The sharks moved late afternoon and I caught 3 sharks in a row on chunks. I landed 4 tuna earlier on sardines and 100lb Yo-Zuri pink fluorocarbon. Bob's 218 was also caught on Yo-Zuri pink 100lb and a fly lined sardine. Hasn't been the first time I've seen YZP out fish all others. Let's see what the night bite brings.

    Steady fishing the last 2 days on 80-150lb fish, most on 80lb or 100lb. Balloons worked well as did the kite and fly lined sardines. Sharks became a nuisance later in the day so the crew backed off the chunk line. One angler fought his kite fish for 2.5 hours and then had a heartbreaker as someone right next to him hooked a fish and promptly sawed through his 200lb leader. Conditions change trip to trip and even day to day. Last trip down here featured great nighttime fishing especially on jigs while this trip has seen no night bite due to sharks. Tuna folllow the moon so a few days from now things will change again. So far I have 6 tuna, lost one to a burn off, plus 2 wahoo.

    Steve Lindsey caught the first tuna of 2017 on the XL.
