what a great day on the water..........a little cool but still a great day......fishing on the other hand was real slow. but, i guess that was good for my crew.....catching was more like a chinese fire drill.........lmao. missed alot of bites.....errrrrrrrr. guess i gotta hold a jigging the lines class b4 next trip. first fish in boat was a wahoo, about 20lbs. while i was unhooking the fish my buddy who was steering the boat forgot he couldn't see were he was going if he was looking @ back of boat......ran under left long rigger, trolled it across back of boat, hook caught my right index finger...ouch. pulled all lines in, had a meeting. then started over. got all lines in water planer tripped,3 more knock downs hooked left short rigger. got two nice 35-40 tuna. made another pass of same area, nothing................saw jimmy k arriving late...he put lines in about where i had my hook-ups, saw him hook-up....made a couple more passes through area, nothing. trolled change till about 1:30. called it a day, my finger was needing attention...ride in was great was. a little choppy about 8 miles from beach.
