Sami's group had three bluefins (61", 58" and59") on poppers today. One on proto-type big popper, one lipped Shibuki and one on unknown popper.
They saw 300 - 400 lbs bluefin jumping near the boat.
25 giant bluefin caught by commercial rod and reel boats yesterday near the area they fished today.
I am going tomorrow and post the report as soon as I come back.

Capt Dom said he hooked up a big bluefin estimated about 300 lbs today, but lost the fish after fighting over 3 hours.
TJ, you like this. :) The big tuna took OTI Wombat on OTI's 80 lbs popping rod and Saragosa 18000F.
Even though they lost the fish, fishermen took turns to fight the fish and were so happy for having life time experience and gave $700 tip to Dom.

I know it is going to happen.
I tried to fish with him quietly, but it lasted only one year. :)
How many guys are coming ? If one or two come, I can arrange a private boat or other charter boat if you want to come in Aug.
