Got out Monday for an all day, multiple species fishing trip. Started at Wood end in P-town for Striped bass. Caught one for the freezer at 39" but that was it. The blues had invaded so although Stripers were there, the blues won the race to the eels almost every time. At about noon we started out to Stellwagon for the Tuna search. Got there to find no action. Did a 180 and headed back to the bay where other tuna sightings had been reported. We were on a small pod of feeding tuna within 10 minutes. My buddy was up 1st as I drove the boat. 1st cast....he was tight for about 2 minutes then we thought the hook pulled...but it broke. WTF! I casted to the next pod and again was on with the 1st cast but unfortunately I saw this fish hit...He was bigger than we had bargained for. Not sure what happened but after maybe 3minutes, my 65lb flouro leader snapped. He was taking drag with ease set about 1/2. Arrrrgh!! Chased and casted into pods of pushing tuna till 4:30 with no takers....except one that I am soooo glad missed my surface plug 3 times....it was easily a 70" fish. Man was that awsome to see...but way too big for my experience and tackle. Friday got out for one more try. Changes to an 80lb leader today. Got to the same area and found fish pushing right away and these were much smaller which was great to see. Many of these were 40-60" fish and perfect match for the gear I have. Many casts to these beauties but no takers. For my 1st attempt I consider it a total success. Learned alot and got to feel the power of these awsome creatures. Can't wait till next time I can get out and chase them around.
