October 13, 2012 BFT on the Lady Di

Had a BFT Charter on the Lady Di, a brand new Henriques 35 express.Capt Diane and myself were a little perplexed when the charter did not want to sail early Saturday morning. With the boat ready to sail, and running on some good intel, we trusted the weather forecast and decided to fish anyway. A short time later, we were putting lines in the water. Pulling a 10 rod spread, I thought we had the bases covered. IT took a hour until the first bite, a feisty little false Albacore, then another one before it died. We trolled and trolled, changed the lures and put fresh meat on to no avail. As the day went on the water got better and better, but I could not find a bite. BY time the afternoon sun made its way to the western horizon, all we had were the 2 falsies, and a suntan. Then it happened. WE got covered up with the False Albacore. For the next hour, we could not keep these fish away, no complaints from us, it is still very exciting to have the line get pulled out of the rigger clips and have the rods  bend. Despite the slow mid day bite, we ended up on a high note and left them biting. Captain Diane’s boat is as comfortable as it gets. Very very sturdy, and is a dream to be on when off shore. It fishes a 10 rod spread extremely well. Last trip we were pulling 11 lines!  We will catch the BFT before the year is over, just wait and see…..Anyone interest
