Day 3 SIBT

We made a long run west looking for water only to find it sucked wayyyyy offshore. We did manage a blue marlin bite out there but no connection. The wind started to come up so we picked up and ran back inside to end the day structure fishing and went 1/5 on sails in there. Tough tournament for us. Congrats to Magic Lady on the well deserved win! Great times, always a fun tournament to fish!

Day 2 SIBT OUCH

Today was a tough one for the entire fleet, and we were no different. I ran all over creation looking for something special only to find green green water! We had some bites but didn’t capitalize today and I didn’t feel I ran over what I’m capable of today so frustrating day all around. At least it was calm (I hate when I have to refer to that for a positive – haha). Lay day tomorrow then we need a big last day Thursday!

Day 1 SIBT

Tough one for us today. The morning started off great with some action going 2/5 on sailfish finding the birds on radar and raised two others that didn’t eat. Then it became a desert for us big time. We ended up getting caught way out of position at the end of the day (how I feel at least) and a few boats got into some action that we couldn’t get to. Hopefully I can put the boys on a better bite tomorrow!!

1/21

Fished a 5 hour this morning and started inside looking for sailfish and marlin. The water inside was green and we kept pushing off trying to find better water and life but never came across it inside 6000 feet. We switched gears for the last hour and a half to try and get some wahoo and finally we got a quick melee but unfortunately were only able to keep on one the hook long enough to get into the boat. Tough morning but still squeezed out a catch.
