Take 3 on the Trade In

For my third trip this week we sprinted down to the Washington Canyon to get the 2pm til dark bite.  We arrived at 1:45 and from radio chatter it was dead there all day as it has been, and I thought, “Great, we didn’t miss anything.”  We got on the chunk and it was slowwww.  A few boats started to pick at the yellowfin tuna around 3:30pm but it never got red hot.  We finally got our bites all at 5:30pm and had a triple header and got all three in the boat.  The fish were right with the pilot whales, trouble was the whales were scattered throughout the canyon and most pods had no fish.  We managed to get one more bite but it swallowed the hook and the teeth sliced right through the 25# fluorocarbon.  Once nightfall set in we headed for home.  Unfortunately it seems like the yellowfin tuna bite is finally coming to a close…
