Stayed close to the shore this morning as the sea was pretty choppy. Didn’t need to go far out anyway as there were fish, baitfish and seagulls diving everywhere. Had a few Scad and 20 to 30 of these chunky Amberjack, all caught by either trolling or spinning small metal lures.
Back at it today making full use of the seasonally kind warm weather. Pulled 4 rods all with small Williamson trolling lures and got pretty much the same as last few outings… Amberjack, small Tuna and a very lucky Dorado…
Impossible to catch for someone but thankfully not for me..! It has been scorching hot these last few days and there are plenty of nice sized Dorados about right now – I had 6-7 this morning along with some small Amberjack and small Tuna.
Tuna caught casting Halco Twistys. Dorado caught on small Williamson trolling lures, modified slightly, with double instead of single hook.
Daytime temperatures have dropped from the madness of August, its a little cloudy too but offshore the water temperatures usually peak at this time of year. Warm water means only one thing – Dorado – so I took a long anticipated run out this morning.
Sweetest spot was finding a floating log in the sea – fish lurk underneath floating debris like this. I just knew that as soon as I passed it one of the trolling lures would be hit and sure enough, the nearest rod arched over and the first Dorado of the day was on and soon in the boat.
Circled back and cast a small, silver Halco Twisty past the log, pulled it back fast and sure enough, first cast, I was on with the second one..!
Ended the day with three Dorado and dozens of Little Tuna and baby Bluefin Tuna – so many I lost count – and there ain´t many days I can say that…!
Was windy and quite choppy today but on the basis that “if it’s blowing we’re going” set out to see what I could find… Tuna, Mackerel and 7 baby Amberjack all taking on small trolling lures. Arch Nemesis was nowhere to be seen but I suspect he’s around, laughing …
