    Capt Dom said action was very good today. He landed 4 bluefin all on slugo.
    I am going to use non-slugo tomorrow to compare the effectiveness of my lures. But I doubt my lures can outfish slugo. :)

    If there are some surface action, I am going to experiment new 3.5 oz custom pencil popper. Guys who use these poppers for striped bass love them and they should work for tuna too.
    My journey in search of ultimate lures continues... :)
