Well a great season for ducks is behind us but goose is still open in my area till the 26th so my buddy Mike and I set up this am hoping to decoy a few in. Well it turned out ok. All morning we enjoyed widgeon, mergansers, blacks, gadwall flying all over landing in our decoys. Finally had some geese commit, we downed 2 nice birds and mine had a band (my first banded goose) All in all a great day on the water. New storm coming intomorrow more snow and ice.. Rich Figlia
We steamed all night and contiued passed Clarion island to the buffer zone. The marauders were set back behind the boat on the trolling gear. Just minutes later the rods started going off.
All the commotion attracted the sharks making it nearly impossible to fish
Tomorrow morning will be our last shot at the cows before heading back to Cabo.
We left the fish biting back at hurricane bank. we should be back at Clarion where the "Cows" graze by afternoon.
The last Sixty hours on hurricane bank was a productive one. two hundred and twenty yellow fin caught with many of them being released. We change course and work our way back to Cabo San Lucas but we'll stop near clarion Island first where we saw the largest yellow fin taken earlier in the trip. For now the tired and battered Fisherman relax on the deck and look forward to sleeping in.
We arrived at hurricane bank in the very early morning. The wind was blowing 25 knots, but that was no match for the excel. We were greeted by flying fish and the deckhands displayed their hospitality by inviting them aboard.
The mayhem started immediately and captain al Lorenzetti was hooked up on his first drop. The big yellows kept coming.Eventually the sharks crashed the party and it became difficult to get the bait out to the tuna.
The Excel should be at Hurricane Bank at about 3am local time. The bank is a sea mount 600 miles off of Cabo. The structure is only 90 feet below the surface.
Although the Tuna fishing has been red hot We are back on the move again. Captain Justin Fleck believes he can find bigger fish. We're off to hurricane bank 1000 miles south west of San Diego California and an eighteen hour steam from our current position.
