Default Overnighter on 08/11

Me and six buddies went over night fishing the meekend of August 11th. We headed in the direction of the beer can, marlin, and the ram powell. The water looked beautiful the whole way out, when we arrived at the Beer Can there was schools of yft jumping every where mostly between the 40-80# weight class but there was an occasional big one. Within five minutes of dropping are baits in the water we hooked two yellowfin in the fifty pound class lost one after five minutes and the second one at the boat. We kept fishing but the bite had turned off just as fast as it turned on. We then headed out to the Marlin and trolled until sunset we were able to raise one billfish that played around in are spread and then dissapeared. Once it got dark we started chunking at the marlin had no luck there, so we made a move back to the beer can and the bite was off there as well, so we made a another move and ran over to the rampowell where we had no luck with yft but did catch some blackfin. We jigged and chuncked until morning time with not much more success. Once daybreak hit the bite got better and managed tohook another yft around 60# at the ram powell this time but yet again we got this one right up next to the boat and lostit.:banghead We continued fishing and after another thirty minutes we were hooked up again with a yft around 50# this time we didnt waste any time boating the fish and finally put are first fish in the boat. The bite seemed to turn off so we moved back to the beer can where the tuna were jumping again and again within approximately five minutes we were hooked up on about a 40# yft and after about fifteen minutes we boated are second and final fish. After sitting and fishing at the beer can for approximately another houronly catching little schoolies on a popperwe decided to put her in the wind and head home to make the trip even more interesting just as the beer can was getting out of sight are port engine stopped working due to trash in are main fuel filter, and after eight hours of riding to get home we finally made it. It was a fun trip and definately encouraging that the blue water was finally at the tuna rigs.

Below are a couple pics from the trip, Am planning to head back out this upcoming weekend, wondering if anyone else will be out there?
