    Those southern tuna are just stupid it seems, maybe they all got caught. We still have plenty of tuna here at Cape Cod (not till may) Our tuna are much more difficult to catch and require's less luck and more skill. It seems you had no problem last year bringing a couple hundred jig & pop tuna to the boat while most were crying the blues of no tuna. I'm sure next year will be the same. We had them right in out back yard all season and only a few knew how to get it done. It's good you don't run your mouth on every single tuna you catch, it keeps the crowds down and leaves more for us

    You can't catch fish sitting on the couch....

    Every great fishery goes through dry spells, that's why they call it fishing, not catching. It is really all about getting your shots when mother nature and life's schedule allows, and having a good time. Chasing tuna can be very frustrating, but it is this frustration that leads to the challenge, and even greater enjoyment of the bite when you are fortunate to be there at the right time.

    Nice to see people taking a chance and just going for it, looking to make their own luck instead of report chasing.

    I live my life by that statement.

    Evan thanks for the trip I had a blast and will remember it for years to come. Even though we didn't catch fish the time spent forging new friendships and hanging out with existing friends is just as important.

    I had a great time with our fishing team of Big Tom, Tom (Doc), Adrian, Jomal, and Evan; it is always a pleasure to share a boat with all you guys, and cannot wait for next time.

    Meeting all the other distinguished anglers Friday night was a treat and having Konishi San autograph my carpenters was a true honor.

    They do, but who want to tangle up with those class of fish on a spinning outfit :)
    Captain Ned Ashby from Sea Breeze is holding the North Carolina state record when he landed an 805lb 2 years ago,
