I believe this is the 3rd or 4th year these three have fished with us as a group, Bob and Barb have had some of their family on before that, but recently these three have fished together.
Over the last few days the fishing has been challenging to say the least, some good, some slow, therefore yesterday I decided to head right for the hump and get an early start on the tunas. The wind was picking up as the sun was rising and the closer we got to the hump so did the current.
We had no bites initially and I begain to think I'd made a bad decision to start this day but all the sudden it was as if someone threw a switch and the tunas started to bite. We caught our limit of tunas plus a mahi, went in to calmer seas, caught our limit of vermillon snapper and finally made it back to the reef (and the calmer water), where along with a few less memorable fish we caught a decent mutton.
As always a fun day with these great folks, looking forward to fishing with them again next year.
