OI report (late 8-24)
Fished the whale hole again. Crew was, Conner,Craig,Ron,Stan,James & me.
Stayed docked sat & sun to continue on the house project. (Thanks Joe)!!
Water had cooled off a bit, 79 & a bit cloudy. Their seems to be a reverse change from about 50fat out, with the blue hotter water shoved way inside all the way to about 13 miles off the beach.
The whales,bait & fish are still there but were just not biting much on fri.
We managed 3 tuna bites for the day with 1 never comming tight , 1 broke off (again) & 1 fatty in the box on the WWB spreader.
Also managed a big White one on the left middle. Looked like someone or something had tangled with this one before. It was missing it's entire bill almost flush with it's lower jaw tip. Conner had a heck of a time pulling out the hook & getting it into position for a good photo. She swam off strong & healthy so I guess they can still get by just fine with broken bills. (Tommy was this your dirty work) LOL.
Stan took pics but they were really bad. He used the view finder + full zoom & all I can say is, WoW he must of lost his glasses. Poor Conner struggled to get that perfect shot & all the pic shows is half & fish & half of Conners head & as for the Tuna, it was just a shot of it laying on the deck but not even facing the camera at all. We missed Beck great camera work for sure!!!
I't won't be long now till the fall air will pick the bite back up. We will be back out next weekend.

I just got back last night and I'm already planning the next adventure.
Only the truly ate up understand the maddness.
