Fish Report for 10-8-2017

Solid Day

Bill Cavanaugh

Hi Gang,

We awoke this morning to calm seas and a gorgeous sunrise. The weather was even better today than it has been with less than 5 knots of wind and clear skies all day. Just after sunrise we hooked our first tuna, a 35 pound yellowfin. For the next few hours, we were busy with one to six fish hooked the entire time. Most of this fish was 20 to 30 pounds and a few that were close to 40. Impressive grade of yellowfin for this place. The best bet today was a 30 or 40 pound fluorocarbon and a 2/0 J hook like an Eagle Claw 118 or a Mustad 94150. Finesse worked best today. Smaller profile hooks, fluorocarbon that doesn't reflect light as much as standard monofilament, which in turn is less visible to the fish, getting more bites, catching more fish, getting more pictures taken, more posts on social media, and looking cooler to your friends. All of the little things in your technique made a difference today. We spent mid day catching some wahoo and had a little sundowner on 25 to 30 pound tuna. All in all it was a great day. We are staying here tonight and fishing this again tomorrow. Wish us luck, Captain Bill Cavanaugh and the Intrepid Team
