Today felt like we got away with murder. It's not often you get a slick calm December day. And then on top of that have the fish committing suicide. But the stats aligned and we had a great day today. We went 2 for 3 on yellows to 110. And 4 for 7 on good wahoo. And the white flag of surrender was raised at noon.

Well with hunting season winding down. It's time to get back to work. I ran my first trip of the year with the Milstead group. I had two father's and four 14 year olds. It was a great day with the boys getting to experience things they have never seen or done before. And maybe unfortunately hear a few words that hopefully won't make it home to mom. While wahoo fishing we caught plenty of yellowfin. It was doubles and triples on every pass. The downside was the jack cravelle were wearing the yellowfins. So we moved on the see about some real yellowfin. Now the next hurdle we had to overcome was the world mother load of 25-40lb kingfish. If they were good to eat we could of solved the world hunger problems. We took the hooks off of the top waters and watched anywhere from one to five separate fish sky on the lure on each cast. The next hurdle was and the reason we didn't complete our humanitarian misson was the sharks were extremely large and starving. And before we removed the hooks we lost a few lures to sharks eating the hooked kingfish. So basically we drifted along looking at the aquarium underneath the boat. Finally we saw what we came for. And here is where the boys heard a few excited off color words. But we had a super deluxe jumbo mandingo stud of a yellowfin under the boat. I finally got him to eat but he spit the hook. AGH stupid fish. No worries we had four or so others under the boat now. It was tough feeding them with the sharks but we got the another one to eat and we quickly went through all of the boys. And went on to the fathers and then the approximately 120 lb yellow got eaten by sharks. By this time it was late in the day and out of bait. I retraced my steps while looking for wahoo. And manged to troll up about a 45lb amberjack and when I went to gaff it a 50 plus pound aj was following him so Chaz grabbed a rod with a X rap on it and made some figure 8's until he ate it. So we salvaged a clean fish box at the end of a epic day of catching with a couple fish for the table. It wasn't a full fish box type of day. But the opportunity was there for it. It was not to be our day for a tuna slaughter. I look forward to the next trip with the Milstead's.

The Yellowfin and Wahoo fishing is still going strong. On days when they don't cooperate we are still catching big blackfins as well.
