.........cuz I've been following reports for a while and the weather and fishing has been, well, at times dismal. But things are starting to look up. Here are a few quotes.

From the bridge of the American Angler, 6/6-7:

"We made the long run down and found warm water and some of those small Albacore but no BFT'S. After many hours of searching we did find the zone, right before dark. It seems we got in here a little on the late side, so we are going to be here all day tomorrow and see what happens............Today we stayed very busy running from spot to spot of Bluefin Tuna but most of them weren't very eager. We did manage to catch 18 BFTS and 1 Albacore for our efforts. We are enroute to an Island spot and then we'll just take it from there. Despite our score today, there is very good sign around and the conditions look very good for our upcoming trips and the summer. We are going to give the offshore scene a rest and take a look at it again later."

From the Excel, 6/5-6:

"When describing good yellowtail bites we frequently say that "they were biting everything" but thats exactly what happened. Flylined baits, dropper loops, yo yo irons, and surface jigs all got hammered. There is definitely a good sign of fish here...Today we fished offshore to try and get on some albacore and possibly some bluefin. We arrived at the area at first light and put jigs in the water. We didnt get a whole lot for the morning but after a few hours we got into an area of water that was holding some longfin. We scratched all afternoon with single and double jig strikes here and there with a few bait fish mixed in."

And finally from the Independence, 6/7:

"The weather has vastly improved over the last few days. They fished offshore today. Bluefin tuna was the score for today. They ranged in size from 20-40#. Ended the day with 43 total."

So we look very much forward to departure day on Friday for our threepeat of the Zuker/G Loomis sponsored 7 day on the Angler. Yellows at the Island or on the Ridge and favorable hunting conditions offshore. None of these reports are about the offshore fish chewing the paint off the boat and eating the props, but they're scratching out a good day here and there. I like our chances. We need all of you to wish us some luck as we'll certainly need that as well. Keep and eye on us at:

yeah....make em pay Steve.;) The wierd part about this 7 day is that I might boat one fish the whole trip....or not.....the rest of the time will be hook and hand to the boys and taking pictures of the entire thing.

Steve,

Your Ulua is ready to roll and the Rangpur is secure. I am also bringing the 10ft models just for a bit of variety.

Thanks for the recap of reports Steve..I don't leave until July 5th on the Rooster but I'm already getting excited.I hope the Bluefin are still around in another month and not all wrapped by then...
and mogandave says, "See you there!" I've never done an 8 day in July. Hopefully it's all about bigger tuna at the Stones? Have you guys done this trip before. Look like you'll be watching fishy and Ray unload from their 8 day if you get there early.

Good luck to all of us. Let's hope those strays continue to escape from the seiners so there are a few left for us. I think two or three of those nice 30-40 lb Bluefin would really make the trip. Heck, just one would put me in Sashimi for a while. If the weather lays down for us for a couple of good days of offshore hunting conditions, I'll be stoked. Also looking forward to having some fun next to a pile of dirt, catching Yellows on the long rod.
