Busy week!

 Alrighty folks here's a run down of this week's activities at YBC:

We had one good Salmon day on Monday on the CJ and then the next days were just like old times, a.k.a. slooooow. Some boats went back to our exact spot as Monday and got nothing the next day, so those salmon are being quite elusive. There have been a few caught here and there, but no one is posting big numbers or even nearly an average of one fish per charter customer. We are still keeping our eyes out and hoping there will be another good day that will stick around a little longer!

Bottom fishing was a little slow this week as the water temperature remains a bit cold for them. When the water gets cold the fish metabolism slows down, so they don't want to eat as much and don't go for our jigs as often. Yesterday was a much better day though, the CJ had a few great drifts early in the morning and caught sea bass limits for everyone and a couple ling cod. The SQ caught a good amount of sea bass as well, but only found lings that were too short to retain.

Thursday the CJ went out on a special* 14 hour tuna trip and went a bit past 60 miles looking for the longfins. Capt. Jack came back in with about 2 fish per person from that long day since the fish were so far out. On Saturday he took a private group of 8 out for 12 hours and brought back 3 per person. Those guys said they had a great time and plan to be back next year so we're looking forward to seeing them! The CJ is back on tuna today with a full boat of 10 and planning on going out about 45-50 miles. Looking forward to seeing some albacore on the docks tonight!!

Here's a picture from the men from Saturday's trip having a little fish duel on the dock. Someone apparently puckered up for a tuna but I don't have the photo evidence! Next time…
