9/12-13 — Dolphins and Yellowfins!

Fished the toms canyon Saturday-Sunday and had all the dolphin you wanted.

We caught some dolphin on the troll inside the canyon on saturday afternoon, then pulled the hook on a white on the troll and caught another dolphin before setting up.

At night we picked up 2 yellowfins on live squid on 50# flouro rigs and we pulled the hook on a nice swordfish. We had dolphin in and out of the lights from time to time and we even had a tripletail swimming around. we tried like crazy to get that tripletail in the boat but it didn’t happen.

On the morning troll we picked up a bunch more dolphin trolling by the pots.

We ended up with 2 yellowfin and 22 dolphin to 20 pounds.

9/4-5/09 — Big Swordfish!!

Fished the Carteret and Lindenkohl canyons with the Alves charter and had slow fishing in terms of quantity of fish. The quality, however, was right on the money! The charter requested that we target swords at night and we put this one in the boat:
