Recently, Bloodydecks sponsored a 1-3/4 day trip aboard the Tomahawk out of Fisherman’s Landing. Our own Jake Zalesky and Rodney Marquez were on board to pass out the goodies and get a taste of local bluefin tuna action for themselves. We asked Jake his thoughts on his first overnight trip; “I guess I would say simply how addicting this type of fishing was. This was my first adventure on a multi-day trip for big bluefin and the fight was like nothing I’ve ever experienced. It was truly man vs. beast and that feeling of battling a 70-pound fish on the end of that line is a feeling I want to continue to pursue.”
They both were able to check the local bluefin box on this trip!
Rodney described the trip, “We had 1 drift on the bluefin tuna that lasted for 4-5 hours. We got tuna to bite on fly lined 30-60# floro, deep sinker rigs, 80 gram colt snipers, and 120 gram flat falls. Everyone was following instructions, crew members working, everyone respecting the game of charter fishing. It was a great feeling landing my first bluefin, however an even better feeling when capturing everyone’s stoke on the boat. I can’t wait to go again.”
