March 29th 2010 The Yellowfin tuna are still boiling in Puerto Vallarta but way offshore 20 miles past El Banco right off the islands We hit the fishing grounds about 9 am anticipating a late afternoon bite since there was big full moon the night before. There were 2 boats already at the fishing grounds birds were everywhere but no bite. We starting drifting with a big shool and about 11 am it was like christmas yellowfin boiling and circling everywhere! We had our first hook up shortly after 11 am. Scott Allen's son was up and he reeled in the first Yellowfin of the day in about 20 minutes it was about 100 lbs. about 15 minutes past and we had our 2nd hook up of the day this time Dad Scott Allen was on the reel pulling in another 100 pounder, after that we caught up with the heard and it was bite after bite totalling in 7 Yellowfin tuna's all about 100 lbs with one that was about 125.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
