Pushed east today with Jim Anderson and his crew. Set the trolling spread at a little area that was good to a buddy of mine yesterday. After 30 minutes the long rigger takes off. As I hand the rod down to Dave the line goes slack. Inspection of the leader points to our first wahoo encounter of the season, the wahoo won this round. Another hour passes and nothing. All morning the radio is extremely quiet but then I hear two boats talking about a hot chunking bite about 12 miles away. Dave clears the spread and the diesels see 2400 rpm. With only a tiny amount of butterfish on board I put out a call for some and thanks to Capt. Johnny and Capt. Luke they hook us up with what they have left over for the morning slaughter. We start drifting baits and for the first 20 minutes I’m thinking we missed it but then the fish find our chunks. The next couple hours are great, all except for the stupid light leader. By the end of the day we have 8 yellowfin in the box and at least 5 others that should have been.
