I had John, James, Matt, Toby and Shaun for a day of jigging and popping. Headed offshore early since winds were supposed of pick up in the afternoon. Started in 300 feet looking for Backfin but the water was up to 78 degrees and no tuna. The Jacks were around and ate pretty good. The sharks took a few but were not as bad as the previous trips. While moving up for a drift had a plug out on a spinning rod and a nice Wahoo started screaming off line. Toby and Matt did a good job bring her to the boat a fat 42 lber. We had another Wahoo bite later but pulled the hooks. Toby had 2 different Wahoo bites on the jig but both cut off the assist hooks. Decide to move into 200 feet and found some decent AJs and Almacos. Also released a couple nice scamps (1 more week and they won’t be so lucky). John landed a small African with the long streamers. The winds started blowing 20 plus so around 1:30 we headed for shallower water. Ran in 40 miles and found a pack of hungry AJs. They we nice fish and very aggressive on the jigs. Shaun landed a good one on a popper also. Matt hooked something different on a bucktail and landed a 29 lb king on straight mono. Unreal sometimes how things work out with the teethy critters. We had a great day with lots of different species.

Finally got another small weather window and headed off shore in a big east swell. We took our time and started fishing in the deep looking for Blackfin. The water temps went up to 76 degrees and not a lot of flyers around. The tuna started crashing on top later in the morning. We have a lot of strikes but young Luke was the only one that was able to keep one hooked. We moved around the rest of the day jigging looking for some Aficans but no luck. We eventually found a small ledge loaded with Almacos and Bonitas. Moved back out to the deep at the end of the day and found a decent school of 50 lb AJs. We then hooked 2 different Wahoo on a swimming plug while going up for drifts but both pulled the hooks with in site of the boat.
