Once again, today we had a good day. We started our day off fishing bait. Wide darn open on the small greenies. I was singing the Who song "rain on me" because it was raining bait. It didn't take long to get what we needed for the day and we headed off to the bluefin grounds which is right there. We had one OK stop but right before lunch was our good one. I remember because I ordered my lunch when we didn't have anything going and when I walked outside we had 4 going. I can power down a meal pretty fast though and that's what I did. We were able to drift with that school for hours before it stopped biting. We had a couple per round of those 30-40 pounders. I call those the perfect grade. They are manageable, meaning they're fairly easy to bring to the boat while at the same time when you do you always end with a smile because they're big. The perfect grade. After they stopped biting say around 5:00, we looked for another school unsuccessfully for an hour so we ran back to the bait grounds and had a little start on our re-bait. We'll finish in the morning. Having this perfect bait right next to the fishing grounds is the most special thing about this area. It's more special than the beautiful bluefin we're catching. Sometimes where you caught your bait is more important than where you caught your fish. No bait, no luck.
