East Cape - Keep skipping 'em

Calm seas continue to prevail but we are starting to feel more humidity in the air.  Water temperature has crossed into the 80's and conditions couldn't be better.

Striped marlin and yellowfin tuna have been providing most of the action but dorado and roosterfish are also getting in the game.  Noticeably absent for a time have been wahoo but not many have noticed or had time to miss them.

Last week two tuna over 200 lbs came to the scales.  One fell for a cedar plug and the other came skipping a Yummie flyer.  Skipping baits from a fishing kite is one of the most effective ways I know to catch cow tuna.  For the cows we turn to the kite.  When there is no wind the AFTCO kite with a helium balloon  works well.  When there is a stiff breeze I like the Boston sled kite.  Over the last few weeks we have had some monsters crash on the bait and miss.  It is a heart stopper to watch it happen but so far we have had to settle for the schoolie 20 to 30 pounders.  We will keep skipping 'em and I know there will be a cow in our near future.
