I was lucky enough to witness one of the best bigeye catches in party boat history when I fished on the Viking's three day trip on 08-26/29.
We had four bigeye on troll, 2 on jigs and one on bait on a single day.
The biggest one is 296 lbs weighed three days later after the catch. The second biggest one was 234 lbs dressed. It should be around 260 - 270 lbs.
The smallest one was about 120 - 130 lbs.
I fought the 300 lbs bigeye along with two other guys and it fought much harger than 283 lbs yft tuna I caught in PV a few years ago.
