7/21 Low Profile

I mated for Captain Joe Trainor today on the 55′ Gwaltney, Low Profile. Lots of thunderstorms moved through early, but were gone by the time we pulled out at 3 am. The ride down to 19 fathom lump was fairly nice but as the sun came up so did a stiff 15-20 know WSW wind. It got kind of nasty and stayed choppy throughout the day. 19 Fathom lump showed is no bait and ugly water at first light so we trolled over the lumps towards Massey’s Canyon and worked our way to Masseys. At 11:00 we finally got into a few fish and went 1/2 on small yellowfin and caught 3 decent dolphin. We had two more solid tuna bites but the fish completely missed the bait. That was it. Tough fishing. The water looked better and conditions were starting to look better with a few slicks and chick birds at Masseys when we left. Joe pushed the 12 hour trip a little longer trying to get one more round of bites but no luck.
