Today we started off finding birds and porpoise about 6 miles out and gave it a try for tunas for 45 minutes but we didn’t see what we wanted to see. So with that we ran off another 8 miles and set out. It took too 10 to get our first bite, sailfish on the left teaser, perfect switch then weed piled on the switch bait. Sandy shook it off, the sail found the bait again and then weed again and the sail faded. Ahhhhh. Hate that but ok.
We ended up getting a sail off the left long and hour later and got a clean release. After that it was quiet. Not normal for here. Around 1 we found. Some birds and porpoise again and tried to work them for awhile before getting a double header Mahi and Tuna! We boated the 30# bull and then a half hour later got the 130# class yellowfin on deck! SCORE! Love those big tunas!
We pressed on and at the end of the day found some floating debris we pulled couple Mahi off of to round out a solid day of fishing here in Grenada!
Well the last two days have been interesting, 1 weehoo then a snapped outrigger off the bat Friday which made us call that day a loss before we could even really get going. I lucked out getting what was needed to repair the outrigger which was pure luck having the right friends with random pieces and we sleeved the outrigger back together with plenty of cutting and grinding and replaced all the cables that went bad since I had the spares.
We fished yesterday (Saturday) and had a great flurry of sailfish bites in the morning but unfortunately went 1/7. First tries at hooking them didn’t go so well for the guys. Wish we had another day to teach more. Tried for wahoo in the afternoon but turbid green water moved into the zone making that a no go. Tough couple of days.
Today we had a lot of rain fronts with gusty winds blowing through. It made fishing a bit difficult but we still managed to go 3/5 on sailfish today. Had one that was LIT UP. Really wild looking fish. Did manage to get all first sailfish today so perfect!
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!
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!
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!!
We got in a quick pre fish trip this morning before the SIBT starting tomorrow. The day started very quiet but then we got into a few bites. We ended up 1/1 on spearfish, 0/3 on sailfish and have a nice 400+ blue crash the teaser twice then never come back, OUCH!
