Thinking I'd called it a season, then seeing bigger model yellowfin as well as bluefin now biting on 30-50lb line got my attention, as well as 16 other Condor regulars Friday night. We rolled at 9 with Capt.Rob, 2nd Vinny, Scottie & Miguel on deck and Mike cooking great food all trip. After a load of nice 4-6" dines and meeting it was OFF to the backside of San Clemente Island. We pulled in still dark around 5:30am and a few us started the glow flatfalls up and down for a few metered bluefin. After an hour, 3 of us left on the bow, the guy in middle rocks a 50lb Bluefin. LOL Luck of the draw, go figure. Soon no bluefin to be found we started the hunt for yellowfin, boxing a wide area all day. We stopped on many meter marks, jumpers, porpoise schools all day, but only 1 school stuck with us awhile around noon. One guy got bit on 40, but 30, even down to 25, 20 was needed to even get bit. #2,,1/0,2/0 hooks too. OK season winding down, some Blow by Blow! LOL My 1st hard hit biter screamed line off my JX/700MH then WHAP broke off. After retying another Owner 2/0 ringed circle hook, I underhanded a butt hooked dine on a big boil off the stern and KAWHEEE off to the races. This was a beast, ran me up to the bow 90ft, with 2 other guys in a 3 way battle back around the anchor sprint umteem times, to die for. Pinned to the rail, making inches, the fight was soon to end, one way or another. Rob gaffed 1 guys fish on stb. side, and I yelled I saw my beast at color (he was for me!) and a few winds away, here he came with the gaff, then POOF, hook pulled.!! OUCH Oh well, for damn sure my biggest battle with the new bionic shoulder and fun while it lasted. Many more had carnage due to bad knots, pulled hooks etc. The 3rd guy on the bow, a former fly fisherman he said, was on 20lb a good 2hrs before landing his 40+ brute yellowfin=Good Job! This ended up the JP I believe. We found lots of big schools all afternoon into the dark for few more biters. We ended up with 18 Yellowfin 25-40+ 1 Bluefin 50lbs for 17 winders. Not bad for October. Who can complain fishing with 17 on a 90x26 big boat in shorts in October? LOL Soon it was time to lick the wounds and hit the hot shower and Chinese Egg Roll/Veggie/Rice Dinner and hit the rack for a smooth ride back to San Diego. THANKS to Rob and Crew. We had a blast! Also Thanks to all the fine people I fished with Saturday, and all season on Condor. YOU ROCK! LOL Here's a few pics. I think this is it for me with Cataract Surgery 11/15 so HAPPY HOLIDAYS ALL AND EVERYONE AT GET BENT SPORTFISHING!!
