Default MSviking rig trip 3/20-22

Went out towards Horn Mt / Noble Tom Madden area this past weekend to tweak our new tuna tube pump setup. The water around Sportsman's is so shallow and foul that we really can't play with the tuna tubes at dock. Seas and weather were perfect just no takers on our live baits. We spent most of the day Saturday soaking blackin fin around Tom Madden. A school of porpoises showed up and proved to be masters at taking blackfin off our bridles! Got so bad eventually had to quit live baiting.

Numerous boats were out there tuna fishing; Recess, Born2Run, Annie Girl as well as a few LA charter boats. I did not hear or see anyone tearing them up. I did hear back at the dock that a few tuna were caught. In two days of fishing I did not see a single tuna sky but there was tons of bait at night which would disappear at daylight. Where does all that bait go!?!? Back under drill ship?? Who knows but they flat disappear with the sun.

Pics are of some of dolphin that ran by as well as a Whale that gave us the tail.

In the Bone Head of the month category I bent my starboard outrigger on a cable hanging down from the BeerCan rig. Totally my fault as I knew the boat was well off the rig, but forgot to remember there were one or two low hanging cables. Lesson learned !





Whale Saying Goodbye


Using FLIR to watch Barret deploy sea anchor, FLIR actually helps quite a bit in this situation as I can clearly see his hand signals

Nice Blue water at Beercan

While the marlin were absent we still have a great weekend on the ocean.

I think that fish is saying " don't you know what's in these water...don't you even think about it sucker".
I take it that the Tuna Tubes worked well? Nice report great pix.
