Sitges

Back out this Friday morning after some great days over these last few weeks.

Was neither cloudy or sunny and it felt like a final day before the season here finishes, winter draws in and we have that long wait till Easter.

Had several small Tuna along the way… also had another Dorado casting at floating debris… missed something big that arched a rod over as we passed more debris (likely another late season Dorado)… but all is well…

Childs play right now…

Had a great day at sea yesterday with perfect weather and plenty of fish. One of the first up was the nice, round small Bluefin you see above

Then by lots of fortune, miles offshore, I found a tree…

Was full of life below it and I had several Wreckfish, a new species for me…

Bit best of all 6 really nice Dorado caught spinning a small baitfish lookalike casting lure…

Here are a couple…

I eventually moved on but before comingĀ  home took a final drive past and sure enough the rod closest arched over for the biggest of the day…

Had a long day out in the sun today and it was great just to see these small Blue-Fin Tuna smashing into baitfish, flying out of the water, going totally airborne and cartwheeling through the sky.

They are the same age fish we caught earlier in the summer – but when they were much smaller – this is how fast they pack on the pounds and mature.

Underwater they seem to be almost made of metal…
