Well I put together a quicky trip up to chase the toona yesterday. We did a bunch of rigging the night before and just had all sorts of problems rigging up my buddies rods. He got some JB Hollow and I was rigging him up with some windon's but I don't have the needles yet so i was using my sewing needles. They work perfect for splicing the braid into the JB but getting the 100 lb. leader into the braid is a nightmare. The JB he got was supposed to be 100 lb. but I think it was only 80 lb. as it was extremely difficult threading the mono into the hollow braid. Finally just gave up and used bimini/Uni connection as the JB kept getting all torn up attempting to get it threaded with the mono. I am going to order the needle kit from Charkbait to make this easy. As for the report. Really nothing to report other than lot's of fog, bait, birds and whales. We had one monster giant BFT chase a bluefish right into the side of the boat as we watched in amazement. I didn't see the BFT but did see the bluefish and he wasn't looking very comfortable with the situation. The BFT according to my fishin bud was truly a giant with a tail that was several feet wide. The whales were giving quite a show as well. and the amounts of bait were insane. We did have Capt. Dom's assistance in finding all the life but it didn't pan out for him or us. Thanks Cappy D for the calls very much appreciated and will reciprocate in kind when I can. The sea conditions were also somewhat lumpy, in my little 20 ft. CC it was a long ride from Green Harbor to the grounds. 20 mi. in a 20 CC in 2-4's isn't my kind of fun but also wasn't unreasonable just not comfortable. Also experienced some minor engine troubles with the Honda which was a first in 8 years of trouble free operation. We did get her running again after some impromptu troubleshooting by me on the water. I think I know what the issue is and will be rectifying today. I don't like not having the peace of mind of a trouble free engine. Looks to be a minor wiring issue with the main battery cables to the engine and as usual the harsh marine environment has reared it ugly head. Shouldn't be a tough fix and i should be good to go shortly. will be back at it again once the weather calms down and the fish get back into a more predictable pattern. Nice to meet GMan as well as Capt. Dom at the ramp at the end of a frustrating day for all of us.
