Going out of IRI Saturday morning. Probably head deep. I might stop at Massys and the Hot Dog on the way out and make a couple of swipes to see if there is any life. This time of year it's easy to run past them. I have a 30ft Proline CC. Boat name is Lucky Catch. Give me a shout.

I think I’m going to cancel for this weekend. Showers, thunderstorms, fog in the morning, etc. Oh Well... Hopefully this crappy weather stops. Shooting for next weekend....

Friday 6/8 went to the hot dog out of OC. Left Sunset at 6am (a little late) to nice seas with swell. After lines in we had a good bite taking line on a flippy floppy but somehow lost it after a few. About 20 minutes later another bite on a flippy floppy. This time blood on the deck with about a 30 lb. bluefin. Only about 15 other boats and a lot of radio chatter with no alot going on. One boat in the deep had 3 yellowfin and 3 bluefin. When asked he stated he was in 1600 feet. Left for home and about 20 miles from OC inlet the south winds starting blowing stronger and made for a bumpy ride in the rest of the way. Did see a large whale , group of pilot whales, turtle and an ocean sunfish along with tuna busting water when we first got there.. Water temp was low to mid 60's.

Brief report. An eventful day for us. Fished the Baltimore. Got to the east wall and it was a steady pick of false albacore and skippies. Had one small skippy that could not pop the release and ended up snapping my outrigger in half at the base. Salvaged it and jury rigged but it was damaged and broke again so had to fish with just one rigger. I was actively debating moving inshore and circling through the notch area when we get two quality rigger bites at 11. One on the wide tracker with green machine and the other a green skirted ballyhoo. Both are clearly nice fish and my first thought is keeper yft or keeper bft but soon after getting the crew strapped in it becomes clear these are bigger fish. Pretty soon became clear we had a pair of bigeyes. They mostly played nice and only crossed bad once and we were able save the fish. Boxed the first fish and put the heat on the second. By 1 PM had both boxed, both were ~64 inches and guesstimate 150-175 lbs each. Hoping to get more pics from the crew but here are a few. Cooking some steaks up tonight for dinner.

Wow, way to go Cletus. Looks like there was quite an epic bigeye bite up around the Wilmington as well. Maybe this year is lining up to be a good year for the bigeye bite.

Thanks diesel meat. I know the one is a bigeye as the pec fin went beyond the first dorsal. The other one upon very close inspection might be a bluefin. Since they bit at the same time I thought eyeballs especially after boxing the bigeye first. So we’re good - I think. Took the pic down to avoid any headaches and back and forth.

From the pictures I seen they look like big eye to me. Looking at the pec fins. None the less good catch

Sent it east on a friend's boat Friday, stayed outside the fleet and found some decent blue water. We had a nice tuna bite right off the bat that spit the hook, can't figure out how as big a hole he left in the water when he smashed the chain, but I guess that's fishing. It got slow for a little bit, then we ran over a school of skippies that we could see under in the boat right before they tore the spread apart. Cleaned that up, then hit a school of little football yellowfin. Went 3/4 on them with a small under bluefin coming right after we put the spread back out. Trolled a little bit longer and picked up a couple alberts before dropping for tiles for an hour or so. Tried two spots with nobody home, then went to an area where I have some numbers. Ended up hitting them on the head, pulled up two bluelines at a time for six straight drops and average weight was 14lbs, biggest was 16.5#.

Fun day to be in the ocean, so much life out there right now.
