Awesome trip!!!!!!! Capt. Matt and Crew are the best!!!
We started at 61st trying to catch bait. No luck there we caught one smallish piggie.
As Matt said bottom fishing was rough. I don't think I even had a bite. No big deal though this was a tuna trip. Bottom fishing is just a side bonus on these trips right.
Tuna fishing started kinda tough for me. Inspite of big tuna being caught left and right I couldn't buy a bite.
Throw the same Halco, same color, same distance, same retrieve and the guy next me hooks up. Happened over and over. Shoot I was standing right next to the guy when the big one hit.
Then it turned on for me but I couldn't keep these big bad boys pinned on.
On Halcos I lost one that ran under the boat and cut the braid. Lost one after a 15 minute fight. Following the fish we got in a tangle with a small fish already showing color. A liitle slack in my line and when we tighten up my fish is gone. Oh well back at it.....
I pulled hooks on two more and then hit another slump.
After seeing several hit frenzys a fellow fishermen convinced me to change over.
First cast with a pink Frenzy and fish on!!!!!!!!
I saw this fish come full body out of the water a slam on top of my Frenzy. Couldn't have been 25- 30 yards from the boat, we saw it all!!!!
Ater a tense battle we got this one over the side.
I tied on another frenzy and first cast BOOM!!!!!! Fish on!!!!!!!
Another right at the boat full out of water tuna beat down on that Frenzy!!!!!
Two casts two fish hooked up!!
I couldn't stop this fish. I had 65 lb braid with 100 lb. bite leader and 25 lbs of measured drag. The line popped😥😥.
I'm not having trouble with breaking fish off. Out of six on one rubbed the boat amd one flat broke off. My trouble is keeping them hooked till gaff time.
