    dolphin and blackfin tuna 10/10/12-solo day

    left sandsprit at first light and stopped at bullshark and bait,but caught the sunrise.Headed to PBH south and put out tuna lures and feathers in 160ft,didn't take long for a double hookup in some scatterd weed.trolled aroun the hill for a bit without any takers.I switched out the two short lines to Zucker feathers and small balleyhoo and trolled around alot of scatterd weed without any bites.I pulled up stakes and ran into 160 south where i saw lots of weed,put out 4 lines and 1 downrigger bait and it was non-stop catching and gaffing fins.By 1pm i was tired and covered in blood from a few gaffs that got loose onboard,but with a big smile i hosed down and re-iced the catch-7 fins about 36" + and lots of peanuts that i let go-kept two bft for my cat
    Of course i was 10 miles south of the inlet in 180 ft and the northeast swell made for a bumpy ride home but not as tuff as heading back after the other days of no catching

    Looks like the Finz have finally showed up in numbers. Wish the wind would stop blowing so I can get back out there. Maybe next week.
