Figured we would try and repeat our BFT & YFT success from yesterday ~ so we hopped back on the boat at 6 am for a trip back the area where we scored 24 hours earlier. Threw 'em in at the Bacardi ~ nothing doin. Then we found our draggers from yesterday and headed towards them. Within minutes ~ skipjacks. Then a few BFT rats as we made our way down to the Tower. Water temp ~ 72.5.

After an hour there ~ with no signs of life ~ we casually made the troll to the Tip. Upon entering ~ we saw a 2 of the boats we heard on the radio! It seemed as though they were the only guys catching fish today. Within 30 minutes ~ a dozen boats were trolling the Tip with moderate success. We had a 2-banger of YFT @ 40-45 pounds ~ Green Machine & purple Tuna Clone daisy chain.

Highlight of the day was the mako that wouldn't let me keep my skipjack! Damn thing chopped my skip in half as I was bringin' him to the boat.

Seas ~ SSW 2-3' tight chop. By the end of the day ~ 3-5' very tight chop.
