The PM bite has been better than the AM bite, so we decided to sleep in and leave at 9.
We ran out to the fleet at the 125 line and heard nothing but lousy reports so we decided to take a chance and run WAY out, like 60 miles out.
We saw some commercial boats and some two day charters from Westport, so we dropped in.
We picked them off one at a time and got a small bite going and eventually ended up with 11 fat tuna.
On the way in we heard lots of repots of skunkings and apparently we did better than everyone else, making us the tallest midgets today.
On the way in our starboard CAT threw a code and we shut down for awhile and then it was fine.
We are shut down for the next two days to get this sorted out before we head west again.
A great crew, great ocean and not horrible fishing.
