The Northstar fishing team headed out early on the estrella for a half day of fishing.  primarily fishing north towards the direction of the tournaments on the eastcape.  Lots of striped marlin on the surface.  At one point had a double hookup, Tio Jaime casted a caballito on his stella spinning rod, and choco on a light weight jig pole.  We had both fish to the boat in 15 minutes with a nice catch and release session of two pretty stripers.  Saw, many many more on the surface, decided to roll on past them as our sights were on tuna and dorado.  Found a nice large grouping of dolphins, and pulled hochies and cedar plugs.  Three footballies yellowfin tuna at one time…always nice to have fresh tuna on board.  No luck with anything of size…but a stunning successful day on the way, very sunny but a cool breeze.  Back to the dock by 1215.
