Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2021-10-14

Location: Guadalupe Island

Weather: Clear Skies, NNE Winds (5-10kts), and NNE Swell (1-3ft)

Yesterday was s great day of sharking from start to finish. So many sharks making very frequent passes by all cages and hitting the bait. Everybody was able to spend significant amounts of time getting close looks. The conditions for the afternoon were similar to those in the morning, but the current opposing the winds made the ship sit pretty well in all of it so aside from some active rides in the surface cages the experience was not negatively affected.

Today we woke up to almost no wind. Finally. seas still have some roll to them, but overall conditions are wonderful. The sharks started a bit slow this morning, but by the time we were dropping submersible cages there were three-four in the area, mostly staying down deeper but as the morning progressed we have gotten more and more action upon the surface. And even when there aren’t any sharks right in front of the cages there are some extremely active yellowfin tuna. They are making runs at the mackerel and even at our wrangling bait. groups of four-eight tunas making passes right in front of the cages. It’s amazing. guests are all extremely happy today and have loved this trip. Hoping to continue with good activity until we begin to pull cages at 1630.

Visibility: 70-100ft+

Water temperature: 69°F
