    A simple Yellowstone Cutty. Thanks to the suit for setting this up. It has been overdue.

    Jigs?
    The only thing worse than the feeling that you are going to die is the realization that you probably won't.

    Every day two hours after sunset we'd turn on some pretty serious floodlights pointed at the water in order to attract little fishies for our prey field assessments. Our main targets were halobates (pelagic water-skimmer bugs), flying fish, halfbeaks, myctophids, squid, and the like. We also caught baby mahi, baby sailfish, bullet mackerel, pelagic triggers, and other fun stuff including olive ridley sea turtles, sea snakes, and the occasional storm petrel.

    It was always useful to have someone jigging a bit deeper than the dipnets to dredge up the squid that were more boat-shy like the big Dosidicus. If I was doing the jigging I'd use my megabait jigs since they'd catch fish as well as squid, but most others used squid jigs only.

    Here's the dipnet station. I velcro-d my camera to the end of a 7m gaff and put it on self-timer.


    And here's Chief Bosun Chico with a little football yellowfin.


    Here's a sailfish that got away. This guy was hanging out with us while we were chasing down some killer whales. That would have been a cool battle!


    Another football. The biggest yellowfin we caught was a 65# beast at Clipperton. The majority were in the 10-20# range.


    More footballs.


    These bottlenose dolphins were the biggest score of any dipnet station.

    Might as well continue since I'm on a roll. Here are some more pics from STAR 2006's Clipperton Island stop. Whee!

    Jose battling a Clipperton yellowfin.


    Bringing it to gaff (always fun in an inflatable boat).


    And the result? Another football!


    This one was the 65# trophy of the trip.

    And the final installment of STAR 2006 pelagic fishing action!

    Me dealing with a bullet mackerel. These guys were super fun on light tackle.


    We had a whole bunch of these guys (silky? I never was sure) one evening around the dipnet station. Good fun as well and she went back over the side a second after this pic was taken.


    Part of a Dosidicus that got munched by its kin on the way up. Don't fall overboard with these guys; they'll ruin your day. This was during the big squid night.


    Mahi in flight. This one was probably in the 25-30# range.

    Looks like you ate pretty well on the trip. I am heading out for small stalked stream trout on Saturday.

    First LMB of the season. Kayak + Wind + Camera Phone = shitty pic.

    Not much to show from my first outing of the year, that and I was by myself and have a new camera, which my wife informed me would get me banned from the house if I happened to drop it in the river so the pics are pretty bad. That said, here you go.
    Five minutes into the drive and you're already driving me crazy...

    Since then it's been a book you read in reverse, so you understand less as the pages turn.
