    Tuna Off The Hook

    Went out with Coleman on Monday and had an epic day. Plugged the boat and made it back to the dock before noon. On the first stop we slid into some boilers and put 45 fish in the boat. Trolled for a few minutes picked up another one then slid in on another one of his boats to finish it out at 52.
