We arrived to our destination at 1:30 this afternoon. It was a lovely ride out here. Hot, hot, hot. It's steamy and hot out here. Once again we had great wahoo fishing today. If you wanted to catch a wahoo, all you had to do was try. There was no wind out here today, and no current. No wind+no current=bad tuna fishing. We couldn't anchor up for one thing. Without severely risking our anchor gear that is. And even if we could, getting a bait away from the boat would be tough and flying a kite was impossible with no wind and all. So after trying that and getting our fix on wahoo, we made some drifts. It's hard to say how good the fishing was because we have 7 guys, and it's really tough to get them fishing. They see the 2 guys fishing without a fish on and figure it's not good fishing so they just hang out on the rail, sometimes with a cigar, sometimes with a beer. But I think we could've scratched good at 60-140 pound fish. We caught a handful in that range. Then came the rain. It rained hard for about an hour after sunset. The boat got a nice fresh water rinse.
So we're going to drift out here tonight, and hopefully by early morning we have some conditions and can anchor up for the morning hit and figure things out.
