Nice weather window on Sunday and Monday, so I hopped aboard Sea-Duction with Mike Avery and headed East.

Stopped at the Triangles for some Bluefish for bait, but no blues at home, instead we kept pulling up nice sea bass was frustrating, considering the sea bass closure. Mikey ended up getting a nice 22" flounder as well.

Off to another wreck where we found more nice sea bass, but some nice blues in the 32-36" class. I caught a nice 33" blue, then had a monster on to the boat, when he decided to cut off my 30# wire leader.

From there off to what we wanted to try for in some Tuna and Swords. Put out the spread, but nothing and no signs of life, so at dusk we get set up for swords.

Drifted the canyon for 12 hours and not even a bump! Only life was a few small schools of squid in the sword light and some dolphins at the 2am window.

At daylight the sword spread comes up and we head off to find some golden tilefish and try some new spots. Second spot we tried, we found them and took home 7 big tiles (could have had more if we wanted). My first Golden Tilefish and man what a workout from 90 fathoms plus! Cranking them boys up is a chore, but worth it!!

Beautiful weather and nice time out on the water clearing the mind and soul!

Here's a few pic's curtosey of Mike Avery:
