    I know its been a while since my last post but I actually fished 20 straight days so its been a while since I could coherently type as well. Most of these will be pics as I cant remember all the stories to go with them. One of the best stories happened early on. I couldnt jig up any chum which is fairly unusual so I started trolling with cedar plugs for bait. first pass was a half of blackfin. 2nd pass I figured I would get a whole blackfin WRONG. The rod bent over and a nice blue starts jumping. We fought him for about 45 minutes before he chafed the 100 pound leader at the boat. After him we caught two more blacks trolling and then proceeded to put a whipping on the tuna. We had 15 yf in the box in about 2 hours and were done well before dark on an overnighter with the big one weighing in at 135 pounds.



    Overally I had a bunch of good trips and a couple slow ones. The snapper are committing suicide everyday which is nice. I have been picking up limits in less then 10 minutes on the way in. OTI jigs have been producing a lot of blackfins for us and most of the yf were on chunk baits or live baits on 60 flouro.
