Sorry for the late report but we have been busy! Sunday was a great first day at the Ridge and Monday was looking promising. There was some small yellowtail and tuna action throughout the night but nothing exceptional. As the morning dawned the chum line started and the fish found us. Right away charter masterEric hooks a nice fish that turned out to be an estimated 100
Pound sailfish (released). The rest of the guys picked away at the wahoo and a handful of nicer tuna. Shortly after breakfast we put the jigs in and trolled around for wahoo. Several short stops and anchor jobs produced 24 wahoo for the day. In the afternoon we anchored up on the high spot and the better grade tuna really got with it. We dropped
Over 200 tuna for the day mostly 15-25 pounders. We made another move in hopes of some tasty bottom grabbers and we're rewarded with a pair of Black Sea bass that were released and a nice grouper. We spent the evening on the anchor with plans of motoring north about midnight. At about 11 pm the pargo started biting so Frank gave the guys that stayed up a chance at a few more. We ended up with about 25 fish between 3-8 pounds. Tuesday morning we looked at the Uncle Sam bank for grouper with a few guys getting rocked but no other luck. We worked north looking for kelps in hopes of dorado and wahoo but found only dry ones. Late in the afternoon a kelp was spotted and we collected 16 nice dorado to finish our day. Working north on Wednesday. Weathers is great.
Crew and passengers will post and provide images but back at the office Jen is the one who makes it all happen!
