8/19/13 Another Tough One

Today we ran out on the Boss Lady to an inshore area that has had a pretty exceptional tuna bite.  We made our way out at 18 knots in the short period swell that was in our face, but made it just by sunrise.  We had lines in and were trolling in 75 degree fairly blended blue water.  Bill worked the area hard all day, and we had some tuna marks and sand eels, but no bites.  At the end of the day we decided to try to jig up the tunas but no luck there either.  We did manage to see a free jumping blue marlin which was unusual for being so far inshore, but there are no fences out there.  All in all, very frustrating day without a single knock down.  The weather was fairly nice all day other than the 15 knot West wind that came up middle of the day.
