First day on the water in KW this year. Beautiful day...seas flat. Went out a little past Western Dry Rocks looking for yellowtail. Scouted around the reef and bar, and didn't mark any fish...at least no obvious schools. Meanwhile, saw some nice weed lines, with fish busting... false albacore/bonito and ceros mainly. We chased those around for a while and caught this nice cero probably at least 5 lb and a nice flag yellowtail under the weeds on a spoon near the surface. Went out scouting along the bar, didn't mark any fish out there but a school of chubs found us, so I figured since there was some life I'd drop anchor and chum. Caught a few nice yellowtails...they were way back in the slick and we never saw them in the slick. My wife caught this large remora that came into the slick...was probably 10 lb or more and around 3 ft long.
We had a couple of boat issues though - the Humminbird screen backlight went bad, and the IPilot trolling motor got stuck on and we couldn't shut it off without unscrewing the lead from the fuse. Hopefully reverting to the old head will fix it... VHF also not working...have to rely on a hand held unit for now. Gotta love boats.
