It's that time of the year again, Fishn for the Mission tournament. Fishing for the Mission is an annual tournament for Dorado with an "other species" category, that benefits the Mission and people of Loreto. It's a great event for our community. It is a two day tournament, yesterday being the first day our team decided to go out far with big hopes of finding big dorado since everything closer in has been small. Day one ended up being a long boat ride, not being able to find any sargasso left us with some small mahi-mahi mahi-mahi we caught while trolling. Day two started off with a bang, this morning the sun was barely even up  as we came across our first paddy loaded with dorado. We had some fun for awhile but weren't getting the size we were hoping for continuing on with not a lot of luck a team decision led us to shoot for the other species category. So off with wishes to land some big alma jacks and or yellowtail. Our plan paid off and we landed some good sized yellowtail and cabrilla. Off to the scales we went. We ended up getting 3rd place in the "Other species" category but had a great two days on the water and caught a lot of fish. Overall the weekend was good for all participants. Thanks to all for organizing and participating in this great event hosted by Chris Wheaton.
