Second Day on the Water
The Tag-A-Giant team had it's second day on the water today. We fished three boats and saw a little bit of action but ended the day without deploying any tags. The F/V Leslie Anne, with Luis and Jake aboard, had a strike but pulled the hook after about 5 minutes. They also had a couple of false albacore caught and released. The Sensation didn't see any bluefin but did get three false albacore, which added a little bit of excitement to the day. The weather was good and there was plenty of life in the waters in which we were fishing. We saw some large schools of spotted dolphin, several good sized groups of feeding birds and we were marking plenty of bait on the sounder but the bluefin were few and far between. Only a handful of fish were landed by the entire fleet. Tomorrow looks like a day off due to high winds but Tuesday and Wednesday look good, so hopefully we'll get some tags in the water in the early part of this week. Wish us luck!
