Default Spur trip 9-24-11

We fished Sat and Sun in hopes of putting some Wahoos on ice and we caught everything except a wahoo. Seeing that green water had moved in at the oil rigs, I headed toward the spur to find the clean water. The water north of the Elbow was the cleanest I've ever seen. We arrived near the spur when we ran up on a trawler like others I see. The yellowfins (20-30 lbs) were boiling all around the trawler. We put 10 on the boat and tried to get one of the bigger ones to bite. There were a few yft over 150 lbs mixed in with the other tunas. Towards the end, one of our yft we hooked up get crushed by a BIG fish. I'm thinking shark on 150 leader will not last but it dumps the 50w down to 20% line left. The fish head straight down and then the angle of the line changes really fast toward the surface. I'm bracing for the big jump and then slack line. We check the leader and it's bill chaffed 4 ft up the leader. This is the price I pay for tuning all my rigs for Tuna.

We set the rest of the night for swords and get one the first hour. The blackfin tuna made fishing for swords a hard time with no more sword bites . We did get some triple tails come by and caught one. I later learned that I had been chumming them up the whole night. I ate Publix hot wings all night and threw the bones overboard. Well, It's great triple tail bait as we found 3 bones inside the stomach when we filleted it. crazy!

We ended the trip with a pomfret, tiles, scamp, mahi, yft, bft, progy, beeliners, sword, and triple tail. The calm seas were perfect!!

The chicken bones really work..!! Iv'e had the same thing happen with a different fish years ago. We try to take fried chicken and cheese puffs all the time. Cheese Puffs are lucky..!!
