Day 1 of the Huk Big Fish Classic was a slow one today.  We only had one boat come to the scale today and that was Fish in OC charter Rhonda’s Osprey with Captain Joe Drosey and mate Sasha Lickle.  Rhonda’s Osprey pulled into the dock early this afternoon and weighed four nice yellowfin tuna.  The largest fish of the four was a 49.5 pound fish that is currently in first place for biggest fish.  Rhonda’s Osprey also holds second and third biggest fish and heaviest stringer.  Rhonda’s Osprey also currently holds every dime in every added entry level of the Big Fish Classic.  If the leader board doesn’t change over the next two days, the crew of Rhonda’s Osprey will be looking at over $330 Thousand…..but that’s not gonna happen.  Barring a cataclysmic event the leader board is going to change.  Boats are permitted to fish one of two 32 hour windows in the Big Fish.  Only 6 boats chose to fish the first window from Friday morning until Saturday afternoon.  The other 61 boats have chosen to fish the second window from lines in Saturday morning at 7 AM until lines out on Sunday afternoon at 3 PM.  They are permitted to come and go as they please and fish as much of that 32 hours as they would like, including overnight.  With 61 boats left to fish an entire 32 hour window there are going to be some fish caught.  The scales will probably be busy tomorrow while they are open from 4PM-9PM and will probably be slammed on Sunday from 4PM-8PM.  Good luck to all of the crews left to fish and congratulations to the crew of Rhonda’s Osprey for their fish from today.

Mate Sasha Lickle of Rhonda’s Osprey did what any good mate would do and decided to give the sardines a taste check to make sure that they were good enough for the yellowfins.
