Default Good Start for 2012

Can't believe Sept 2011 being the last time I've been fishing offshore! Maybe BP oil messes up the weather too. Had some ATL people down and headed toward the steps. Very bumpy on our way out and then it looked like a lake. As soon as we arrived, a commercial boat captain with a thick European accent pushed us off our fishing ground while his other boat was towing a 4 mile long cable net at the steps. The boat name was Amber 3 and can anyone inform me of what the rules are for long lining for our area? It really sucked see them just ruin our fishy like that.

After being pissed, I moved over a few miles. The ocean rewarded our kind act with 2 very nice swordfish. Amber 3 can kiss it! With 2 swords on board, we headed to the Marlin rig with little success. All the tunas were small and very picky. We caught 1 and left for Horn. Horn had more and a little better grade. Most tunas were caught chunking due to scattered weeds making trolling impossible. There are some amazing weed lines form 15 miles east of Marlin rig. We caught small mahis but it should be epic soon. Lots of bait forming on the weeds. We finished with 2 swords, 7 yellowfins and 1 mahi. Good luck to all and hopefully we will have a great 2012 season.

Jeff, thanks for the post (and the call) looks like y'all had a good trip, nice job on the swords! I love the steps for swording! Last time we were out scattered weeds killed our efforts at trolling as well, hate that!!

Did the Amber 3 actually tell you to leave or just stay clear??

Robert, they made me feel very unsafe. They bullied us off and I moved out for our safety. He came within 30 feet from us with his spot light blinding us and would not explain why because his English was so bad. No one could make out what he was saying. No matter what, I'm never putting my crew in harms way.
