A bitter end?

Thought we had a great day in front of us yesterday until the patch of fog off the point blossomed into a front. It was alright in the fog and we caught a small dorado and missed another. Then Adam got impatient hearing other people catch fish farther in. I wanted to run south to warmer water and hopefully more dorado and tuna. The day before we caught five good bulls, had a good Blue in the spread, and saw a sail. I don’t like seeing summer go. We were coming back when a splash happened behind a bait. Then a bill came up and a take. On the second drop the fish stuck and took a couple nice leaps – a Blue of about #170-180, but after thirty seconds it came undone. Still lots of marlin just offshore, so maybe we can still get a Stripe. Lots of wind predicted. Plenty of med. sized yellowtail out front, but they are tough to catch. I’ll miss those glass calm days chasing ripples caused by dorado. Another boat went 3 for 7 a couple days ago, and I guess the three were Blues. But where were the tuna this Fall? Some big yellowtail are showing at the Island. They should blow in this week, and the marlin probably out. We’ll see.
