    Ran a day trip with Jeremy Epps and his customers yesterday. Tuna was the target as always and they were cooperating today. We made our first stop in close and caught a 30 pound yf on a topwater popper and saw enough fish to know they were there. Couldnt get any bait there so we ran about 20 miles to get some good live tinker macks. Came back to our original spot and lit the fish up. Instantly had a double and caught one. Then teh next two baits we doubled up again on 65 pound yfs. Caught both of them after a half hour battle. The fish slowed down after that although we did double up once more on 25 pound class fish. Later in the day we had one more fish pop up next to the boat and the guys managed to get a 50 pound yf on a frenzy popper to end our day with seven yellowfin. Most of the fish were on live bait with 60 pound frenzy flouro and 6/0 circle hooks.
