Capt Jerry reports another FINE offshore adventure that started off great, but the weather took a turn for the worse on Wednesday forcing us to head in a bit early. We caught a couple of Yellowfin right away the first morning as we were getting ready for bottom fishing. Bottom fishing was very good, with plenty of Golden Tiles, some Barrelfish, and plenty of other deep bottom dwellers including Hake, Cusk, cod, Pollock and more! We had plenty of meat on the boat as we started looking for a place to anchor up for the night. Right before dark, we trolled up another big Yellowfin and set the anchor there for the night. Conditions rapidly deteriorated making fishing tough that night with just 1 lost Swordfish. Then next morning, we trolled up 3 more Yellowfin Tuna right away and decided that enough was enough with the weather, so we headed back in.
Tuna – Pete Ferguson – 80 lbs
Tile – Nate Johnson – 22 lbs
