We left the dock with high hopes. Everyone had their flatfalls and their 40 and 50 lb bait rigs tied up and ready to go. The guys drove around in the dark looking for fish but only saw scattered sign, not finding any solid schools. With the Saturday fleet all spread out and the spotter plane coming, we felt we would eventually get on them. Unfortunately, by the afternoon it was apparent to the fleet that the tuna were down or relocated. We were fortunate to find kelps holding small yellowtail, allowing everyone to take home some fish. Hopefully today was just a hiccup in the fantastic stretch of early season Bluefin fishing we have been enjoying.
