    I don't know how to say it, but this was incredible. It started out as a 6 hour striper trip and ended up with a fat tuna on the deck. At one point, we had an acre of fish out of the water at one time next to the boat! I'll have the video up on my site soon. (Tuesday). What an incredible day. Thanks to Dom for telling me to screw the stripers. Thanks to OTI for making the 8'6" Tuna Sniper rod. It is incredible. We used the 60-80 and 40-60 today and casting was a breeze. And fighting a fish...my customer's smile is burned into his face.

    Casting and popping was the way to go today; trollers just got teased. Single hooks...they hook and hold. We did, however, lose our first fish as a tuna spit the hook after a 10 minute battle. That very rarely happens with my tunaCandy hooks. Plus, I love the single hooks...

    Great day on the water and it felt like summer!

    Rich, Yes, tuna were everywhere. We hooked up a 64" tuna at 6:30 am and landed at 6:50 am and went whale watching. :)
    Pametfisher caught and released 68.5" tuna by 7:30 am and he said he is done and go for breakfast. :)

    Video should be up in moments. Addicted to tuna, I am. I miss codfishing, though! It's not nearly as exciting, but it's still fun. You don't get as sore or have the persistent images in your brain....
