It has been a while since our last report but that is because we are just starting back into another fishing season since November of last year. Last Tuesday was our first day back at it in 2013 and so far it has been OK. The weather in the first two weeks of January was pretty bad, a lot of wind and rain, but last week the weather could not have been better. Calm seas and temps in the 70ís offshore. All of our customerís faces, arms, and necks went from pale white to bright red in just a few hours. Well, it looks like we are right on track for another great Tuna and Wahoo season this winter. The Yellow fin Tuna have shown up. Not as many as there will be in say a week or two but it is just starting. There have been a few bigger fish caught 100+lbs. but most of them are smaller than that right now. That will be changing very shortly though. The Wahoo made there normal January appearance, our largest one came this past Thursday which went right at 74lbs., caught by Dr. Lee Grafton. That group went 4 for 4, all of them being 40+lbs. So the big Wahoo are here now and should stick around for a while and the bigger Tuna are starting to show up. Capt. Willy B fished the Conelly crew from Pa. last Tuesday and Wed. and they ended up with 4 Yellow fin, 2 Black fin, and 7 amberjack in two days, and pulled the hook on a 100+lber. I had the Potts crew from Detroit on Wed. and Thursday and they ended up with 4 Wahoo, 6 Yellow fin, and 2 black fin. We broke off two big Yellow fin that ate right next to the boat. Looks like our next weather break will come this Fri.-Sat. and will report then. We still have open days in Feb. and March if anyone is looking to get out and catch some big fish.
