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.
