Six This Morning
“Yesterday it started off very good in the morning," Andy Cates reported aboard Red Rooster III December 2nd. "With about 24 tuna, biggest being at about 195 pounds. It got a little tough in the afternoon and early evening with heavy shark problems. But today it seems to be going better with already six tuna, hopefully throughout the rest of the day, it will stay the same."

"What does a fisherman ask for before he makes a trip?" the Independence said December 1. "Good fishing! Good Weather! Good friends on the trip! Big fish! Lots of fish!. The last three days have had it all. Today we had great weather again to go with excellent biting fish, at sundown we posted 55 more beautiful yellowfin tuna for the day, again the fish were in that 120 to 170 range. The guys today to land cows were Dale Lethcoe with a 238, Joseph Solomon with a 220 and Ron Barron with a 210. Everyone is tired and sore and sitting down to a nice dinner in the middle of the pacific. If you want to get on a trip we have only the last trip of the season departing on Jan. 6th with 19 anglers signed up to go. Give us a call as this is usually sold-out a year in advance but due some unforseen events several people have had to cancel."

Pain In The Skippy
"Today started off with yellowfin putting on a show just after daylight," Intrepid reported December 1, "and a couple of bites to follow. We landed a few fish in the 70 to 90 pound range as well as some more lunker yellowtail, then the skipjack took over. The skippy's here are ferocious, they seem to have big eye's and big appetites, sometimes choking down 10'' mackerel. We decided to go offshore a ways and look for bird life with no success, so we came back in and got the anchor down for the afternoon. Time would not change the skipjack issue, the hungry little striped things were back in full force and we could only try and deal with it. We managed to land another 7 fish before dark with a few finding their freedom. The fish this evening were a little on the larger size with Mike Lovelle landing a 135 pounder to end our day. We will be here again tomorrow, we have lot's of bait and hopes of no skipjack."
