Default Thursday 3-12 Tuna's

Me, Angelo Depaola, Shawn Clemons, and Dave Dorsett left Perdido Pass thursday am around 5:45 and decided to run on out to try and find some warmer water that looked like it was being pushed as far in as over Petronius visa vie a strong 2.5 knot current from the warm water eddy over Blind Faith. Arrived at Petronius only to find a very slack current, and not the water we were hoping for. Kept going on to the Marlin and the Trans Marianas but still didn't mark anything worth fishing. Radioed a crew boat at the Ram and they reported scattered flyers, but no surface action. We headed on out to Horn and found some birds working over hardtails and marked some decent returns on the sounder. The fish and bait were all holding up almost a little down current of the rig corner. We trolled a couple different patterns but only the naked swimming hoo's got any love, and the tunas only wanted them pulled downsea. Put out a spread of hoo's and on the first three downsea passe's we hooked up with nice schoolie yellowfins, and on the fourth pass doubled up. After that the fish went dormant for a little while and we tried to chunk them up. Boated another on the chunk. Rainbow runners started to molest our chunk, so we live baited for a little while and were considering pulling off when some 100+ pounders took flight after a pod of flying fish. Started to work at them with two poppers and put a nice fat one in the boat that was pretty determined not to come to gaff. Fish was pretty beefy and was guestimated a good bit over 100. Ended the day with 7 good yellows. All of these fish were caught between 10 am and 2 pm. Nice daytime bite with no other boats in sight. We set course for home and collected some bottom fish en route. Was nice to see the spring time pattern warming up with good fish crashing flyers in blue water. Hopefully a sign of things to come.

Andy

Man that sure is a good looking boat, I mean those sure are good looking tunas. Its always the trips you sit out that they end up hauling in the fish. They did let me come to the marina to help clean the boat upon return, so I don't feel totally left out. Nice haul ladies. I hate you guys.
