Ran a couple overnighters last week with Dan Smith and friends. We headed south on the first night and as soon as we got to the rig we put a 30 pound dolphin in the boat. Thought it was looking good at that point. Started waiting till dark for the yf to get active and it just never happened. We chunked our butts off all night and only caught blackfin. These guys put a whupping on the blackfin like I have never seen and I ended up cleaning around 40 of them the next morning not counting the ones we saved to chunk the next night.

On night two we decided to head a different direction and got to our rig of desire right around nightfall. The bite was a little better over here although it wasnt on fire. WE managed to chunk up five yellowfin during the night and caught a bunch of blackies. Around 4 am I made a move to a closer in rig for the morning bite and found myself in green water It was kind of wierd because there was not a bit of surface current and we ended up staying in one spot for about 45 minutes and just picked away at the yellowfin on chunks. Caught 2 yf on the 50 wides and then the guys hooked up with their light tackle and caught one on a torque and another on a penn 8500. After we landed those two fish on light tackle we took it to the house and called it a trip with 9 yf.
