Team AliG went out wide on Saturday and Sunday.
My plan was to chase a patch of warm water on the SSTs out from the Cavallis in 350m. I put the lures in at approx 220m at 19.5' and trolled out to 450 where we found 20.5'. From here we turned North and headed towards the Seamount where we eventually saw water as warm as 21.4'.
On Saturday we had a double strike on two Albacore in the morning which helped to settle the nerves and test rusty processes (and keep the crew awake...) and a strike in the afternoon which I didn't see and the hook pulled after a 30 second run (again it probably didn't help that the rest of the crew was asleep...).
Sunday was more trying in 1m swell with 15 knot winds and ended up turning into productive snapper mission.
Here's hoping the weather plays ball this weekend coming...
