Hello everyone; Well we didn’t stop at Alijos rocks, since the other 3 boats hadn’t caught a Wahoo yet, so we headed west. Once we arrived to Alijos bank, we made a quick withdraw. With only limited time to troll, we made our time worth while. We boated 11 Wahoo in the hours we trolled and now we are headed for points south. So until tomorrow, good luck and good fishing.

We have had a great time fishing down in the zone this last week. Everyone on board has at least 1 Tuna over 100lbs and all the Tuna they wanted in the hatch , some hot sticks have several over 100, throw in some cows on top and you have a great trip so far. There are many new personal best for this group and that always is a great feeling on any trip. The 6 father/son combo's on the rig have made for a very special time out here. What a way to spend some quality time with your father/ son than being on the water and fishing at such a beautiful destination. The forecast calls for some wind in a couple of days, so we hope to make up some miles in the good weather before it blows...Now would be a good time to get down here with all of the great fishing going on.
We had another action packed day today. The school size tuna (15-25#) bit steady throughout the late morning and early afternoon. We only stopped when we had enough of this grade tuna. We also had a few stops on wahoo which kept everyone's adrenaline level high.
Two photos today. First, from left to right, Gary Ishii, Riggs Smith, Fred Lee, Tom Walker and Brian Maggio proudly display wahoo they picked out of an after lunch stop. Second, John Finneran with a bright school size yellowfin.

Another great day down here with the morning being really good on these Big fish. Things started out in the dark with the big baits and kept rolling until around 11am when it finally shut down. Lots of new personal best on this trip which makes for happy times in the galley and on deck. As with most Big Fish bites we had some casualties on the big-uns, but you don't always land them all. The evening bite never got going today. Our Hoo's Tuna Run & Gun group is all smiles and having a great time. Plenty of Tuna on board with a decent score on the Hoo's so far as well. Looking for more.
ITS GETTING BETTER. Hey gang, here is what we know so far. Today things got going early on, and kept going till about 1200 hrs and then it virtually evaporated for the rest of the day. Bigguns and more bigguns for us here. I looked at the tally board when the dust settled, and 38 tuna was the number for the am hit. They had 10 fish written down for the cow column , but it was really really busy and I think 8 cows for sure, maybe 10. Everything we caught today was over 100 lbs, and the bulk was 130 to 190 lbs , just incredible fishing down here. I wish I had more pictures, but we were on the ropes for hours, and I did get a few, see them on FB , the 2 stand out cows were caught by Jeff Larson , #255 and bob riddle with a # 250, the weather is as good as the fishing, outstanding. Thanks for checking in, I hope we can keep the ball rolling, Jeff
Today we changed locations and our target species. We were after steady action on yellowfin tuna. What we found was very good yellowfin fishing throughout the day, with yellowtail and wahoo biting at selected times. Our weather is flat calm and predicted to be the same tomorrow so we are staying and will be here again tomorrow. Chip Koehler gets the honors today with a 40 # wahoo.
Capt Justin called in from the Excel with an update, they have been working their way down the Ridge hitting some of the high spots. We have had pretty good action around, the school sized Yellowfin Tuna have been willing biters, as have the Yellowtail and Wahoo. Whatever we have targeted has been biting, we even hit a couple of our honey holes for Grouper and had some good Grouper come over the rail. The weather is perfect and the only thing that would make this trip better is if we can find some of the bigger tuna to bite for us. We will check back in again later.

With the 2014 offshore season in the books, we are now looking forward to 2015. Rick and Dina are putting together the open party schedule and reaching out to charters for their next season bookings. If you already made your 2015 reservations for Ocean Odyssey, we thank you. If you haven't even thought about it, now is the time to start. Most charters groups are now putting out feelers for dates and requesting quotes, with these dates firming up by January. If you wait until May or June, you can almost be guaranteed to not get the date you or your company really want or even worse, not being able to book a whole boat trip at all.
Ocean Odyssey is accepting reservations for offshore fishing trips of 1 day up to 3 and a half days in length. The Double O will begin offshore trips in June and will run them through October 31 to get those late season tuna.
If you have questions about whole boat charters or you are ready to make your reservation call Dina at (619) 889-4535 or email her at E-mail. We appreciate your prior business and look forward to sharing the rail with you again next year!

Not much to say about Tuesday other than we picked up this morning where we left off yesterday. This morning started off in the dark with light winds and we happened to be in the right spot at the right time again. The fish this morning were the 100 to 200lb plus. I did have time to take a few shots for todays photos of Ken, Rocky and Brian. These past few days have been awesome and we’re feeling very blessed with all this good luck. We are making a move and will be traveling for the next few days, so will check in later.
Everything is great here on the Independence. Well, day # 2 here, and we had another banner fishing day here on the Indy. Beautiful grade yellowfin tuna, flat calm weather, and everyone is a happy camper. We had a couple of excellent drifts today that resulted in 75 tuna, 50 of which were 100 to 200 lbs, most being 110 to 170 lb fish. Things look good around here, and we are eager to see if more bigguns are around. Sea ya all later, Jeff
