Check out the HOT DOPE on some Outstanding Fishing on the American Angler Website. Looks like someone turned on the Fish Switch at Guadalupe Island.
Kub Ito got this year's first "local" wahoo which he graciously donated for an upcoming wahoo dinner.
Soon afterwards we saw a small school of tuna on the machines and they showed immediately. We had very good angling on [get this] 40-60lb tuna with a few pushing 70lbs as bites were very easy to come by. We kept 4-12 hooked for several hours as everyone aboard was on the ropes. We ended up with 100 of these good grade tuna for the afternoon and our other guys that were here all day also had big days.
Art Taylor on the Searcher said that this was the best fishing that he has ever seen on this grade tuna and he has owned a long range boat for over 25 years.
Obviously we don't know if they are going to bite like this for long but what we do know for a fact is that they are here right now. I know that there are lots of people that walk and breath for this kind of fishing so call Lori. At times they were biting heavy string, but the rig of choice would be a castable sized 2-speed reel with spectra and a flourocarbon 50lb topshot with a choice 7-8 foot rod for fishability.
