Had a great time with Captain Josh of Outermost Angling, Raymond and Sami yesterday. After hearing the results a few days ago, we just couldn't resist heading up North. We left the dock at 0330am and had the sun slowly peeping across the horizon when we reach tuna town. We saw fish feeding on the surface and started casting for them but were greeted by monster Blue fish, they are so aggressive the tunas had to make way for them!
We move to another pod and Sami came tight almost instantly on the Saltywater and Carpenter Gamma, this time a tuna for sure cause line was peeling out of the 18000SW.
"Get my belt!" he shouted and as we scrambled to have his belt on, he felt the fish doing its head shakes and lost tension on the line...and the fish was free to swim again.
When Sami reeled in the line and inspected the lure, he realises he was using barbless hook that we normally use for GTs, lesson learn.
We could hear on the radio that everyone was catching fish or the ones that away every minute and moved on to look for a fresh pod.
There were so many boats yesterday and it was tough to have a shot before others showed up but we kept searching for them.
Approximately 0715 we saw a school of fish breaking the surface about a mile away and screamed at Josh "GO GO GO"
Hit the school, made the cast all three of us about five feet apart and BOOM, I was tight! The fish was feisty for its size but i managed to whipped it in under five minutes.
The fish had no chance resisting the Hot's Keiko Ocean lure or against the Hot's prototype Cape Cod Special BT-73XXXH.
Took some quick shots and it was back to fishing, we saw many more scattered pods but other rival boats got to them before us, the usual suspects includes Captain Dom, Eric and Jeff and many others.
It was fun listening to everyone shouting on the radio.
"I just had one swam right beside the boat!" or "@#$% this is the fifth fish i @#$%ing lost!" or "Oh we had three fish after the Siren and they are still chasing!"
It was hilarious!
Can't wait to get time off to head up again, Cape Cod never ceases to amaze me, even when the fishing is slow(that is why we call it fishing and not catching) the beauty of the place, whales, sharks and just listening to fellow anglers yelling away on the radio makes up for the fishing.
Cape Cod's fishing is definitively getting better.
