    Diane and I met Capt.Chip at 4:15AM and launched around 4:45AM. While the conditions were not perfect, there wasn't a lot of fog, which had made the last trip nearly unfishable. Although the visibility was good, there was not a lot of activity to be seen. The morning was quite slow aside from a wide-open striper bite that lasted an hour or so. Around 1PM we spotted some birds working an area pretty hard. We started casting toward them and caught a bluefish and another striper. I thought we were on another school of stripers when the Saltiga slider went bye-bye. The fight was on!!! I was using the BD100 (wishing it was the BD200) with a 20K and PE6. Its first run must have taken at least 250 yards with about 20-22 pounds of drag. I could tell this was a different animal. After 25 minutes I saw color. A lot of color. Chip sank the first gaff and I followed with the second. When 68 inches of tuna came over the rail I almost threw up from excitement. For anyone who hasn’t had the chance to fish with Chip, you’re missing out on a tremendously good time… oh yeah, he’s also very, very fishy! Enjoy the photos…
