Curtis, FKG, & I made the run out of Shelter Island Saturday evening around 8pm at a comfortable 7kts per hr. Ran 70nm on a 207 to the 1067 zone. Great seas, very little wind, and 50% of a very bright moon for several hrs. Our 24' Skippy was sipping gas at 2.5 - 2.8 mpg all the way down there. Dropped the jigs in the water a little after 6am, got our first yellowfin tuna at 7:00, then about every 20 minutes would be fish or short bite. Ended up fishing our way zig zagging up the inside of the 213 before heading for S.D. around 2pm. We landed 2 fat albacore, 3 small YFTs, & a couple rat yellowtail's. Sure was nice being back out on the water again, last weekend we made a short run to test out my leg. I tore 60% of my calf muscle while playing tennis 2 months ago.... the day after my injury the yellowfin tuna showed up in 1 day range. Ugggggh! Leg is about 95%, and Tean Hanna are at 100%. Hope the fish stick around for a looooong time this year, I remember a few years ago catching albacore the weekend prior to Thanksgiving, hopefully history repeats itself.
