Hurricane Bank

We arrived at Hurricane Bank at 4:00 - 5:00 am after cruising almost 4 days from San Diego.
I got the first tuna on the trip on a jig at dawn.
I probably had about 5 - 6 yft along with many skipjack on jigs around dawn, but bites on jigs were shut down when sun came up.
Fishing was petty good on live sardines, but most tuna were smaller except James' 256 lbs cow.





skipjack for bait

I lost a nice tuna on a jig when it got dark. But tuna didn't bite at at all on jigs or baits at night.
I started jigging before dawn next day. I caught skipjack on every drop of my black color Sevenseas Hooker jig with occasional small yft. I must caught half dozen small yft around dawn, but bites on jigs were shut down again when sun came up.

Bites were slow in the morning. I lost a nice yft within gaffing range when tuna pulled my circle hook.
Shin didn't bring any heavy gear and Ken let Shin use his rod/reel.
Shin got a 258 lbs cow on live skipjack which turned out to be a jackpot fish, but fishing was pretty slow in the morning.




I tried to cast Carpenter 125g BY-y lure and had a big boil behind the lure.
Capt Justin didn't like the action in Hurricane Bank and announced the boat would leave for Clarion Island by noon.

Is that a PE8 reel? Congrats and can't wait for more pics. Looks like you are the only one without a harness and even a fighting belt.

clarion Island : hot tuna bites

I was a little bit disappointed because I have been waiting for the opportunity to fish Hurricane Bank for years, but we fished only one and half days in Hurricane Bank. But hot tuna bites around Clarion Island let me forget my disappointment easily.
As soon as we arrived Clarion Island Buffer Zone, we were greeted by hungry tuna around in 100 - 150 lbs range.
Hot bites continued in the afternoon.
Next day, Capt Justin decided to search for big tuna offshore and finally found a big school of bigger yft.
It was a spectacular scene to watch everybody without exception fighting big tuna around the boat.
