Lundahl, a fishing guide for Nordic Sea Angling, was reportedly fishing for blue halibut off the coast of the island of Andoya in Norway when he...

As soon as I hit the mega millions
Branson MO today
Meanwhile in Aberdeen
That’s just wrooooong!
Cedar plugs and Mexican flag clones
Live anchovies and #2 live bait hooks
This gets my vote, if you have rod holders mounted on the rails just put the rods in those not on the downrigger
I just puked in my mouth
Thanks for sharing
That’s the fact jack! There are enough tuna in the ocean for everyone there is absolutely no reason to crowd up, especially this year ! But then...
Yeah, I usually head towards a spot and drop in as soon as I see temps or something I like then trollaround till I find them. I see Vance posted...
I just ordered some off amazon, I have one that lost its insert somehow and it wasn’t even on the line! It was just frikin gone!
22 45 and go sw
Fuck them assholes kai! Ha ha ha
It’s all about the fun!!
Shari is D shiznit for sure, we started talking about putting your autopilot on the nmea 2000 bus and she knows her shit:)
I’d take you in a second if I hadn’t already packed up for the year and moved back home :(
I’ll bet they have fish over there:)
The thing to watch out for is that on that side storms come from land
Agreed, I’d use them for trolling if they came is a longer version
My uneducated opinion is nope
I use 4 Okuma Albacore special’s for bait rods with avet G2’s
Man do I know that feeling, I just retired this year and have been suffering from the same problem:). My main fish are Hali, lings and primarily...
All my trolling rods are line counters for that exact reason, I assign a distance behind the boat to each rod holder so my spread is consistent...
Last week they were hitting the Mexican flag but I still run my standard spread, 2 cedars and 2 flags. One each way back and one each up close:)...
Interesting, I catch at least half on plain cedar plugs, they either bite one or the other for me every trip:)
Cedar plugs and Mexican flag
Why use anything else?
On the way in there was some commotion at the spit, someone ran out of gas right at the spit and was calling for help. When we came by there was...
My only advice it to enjoy this fishery, take lots of pictures and pray it lasts forever;)
We didn’t get back until about 7 o’clock, we were at 20/43 got 12 fish ranging from 22 to 28 pounds. It was rough as hell
I heard from a charter buddy that it’s kinda flipped, the bite is around 11 and on:)
It’s a WFO kinda year, I’m sure there will be some
I’ll be down in the 20’s and then go wsw
This really is my last trip for the year, what a year it has been, I hope all the tunaholics got their fix, I know I did:). I think it was the...
There are other ways to do a repower!
Sunday,I’ll post my coords and results:)
Hah, pretty much where I have caught over 100 fish this year in my little sport boat:). Although I have been 42-43 but it looked like the temp and...
Have you tried to get out early? Notice in the video we have 6 fish on the deck at 0730, 15 total on that stop, we were headed in by noon
And like @Nineball said, I have used floaters with a little weight on the line and it worked good.
I also cast jigs and let them fall, I think...
Monday it’s a lake
Yeah, it starts picking up after 2 and gets good at 4 I just got tired coming in at 7
I hear you brother
Yeah it’s going to be sucky for sure, the biggest drawback to waiting till light is that’s about when it’s the worst... unless you wait quite a...
Any thoughts on the o530 bar on the 1st?
Another question, where is everyone who is on the water getting their bar reports/forcast?
I went out...
No way, lol
Looks like someone posting drunk
I agree completely! This year is old school great, short of being able to catch tuna from fishing bridge:)
The whole disability thing is out of control, every MF and their brother are on it. I see people all the time parking with disabled tags and...
I know, the fishing is the best it’s been in years and here we are, eating each other. Where were all the fights last year! I guess there were...
Winter is coming
Late for gas
Saturday looks sweet too but one of my crew can’t make it.
Leave some tuna in the ocean for the rest of us:)
Ok, just one last trip
I rearranged my deep freeze
See you at the bait dock!
I might start doing that, I usually keep my bait “just in case”. But the truth is once we are stuffed we are done, I have never stopped once we...
But then I’m at the opposite end of the spectrum from the “big boys” :)
Ok, maybe 30 feet:)
I used to troll around at 150 feet but not this...
I think this thread is a good reminder to pay attention and stay clear of boats on a bait stop.
Although the people here probably only represent...
I put mine on 20’ and only watch for bait, if I see heavy bait I work the area, no bait, I just keep on rolling.
I’m just glad that boat don’t say trophy on the side:)
Hah I always transpose those two acronyms
NEMA enclosures vs NMEA 2000
This is how 2 ft itis starts:) ha ha
It’s a different game all together:)
Think of it like fishing from the shore while some kid standing next to you is throwing rocks in the water:)
Stay back 1/4 mile if you see someone on a bait stop! Troll around and find your own fish unless they specifically call you in. If someone calls...
10% unuseable =36 gal
36 gal keeping 30% reserve = 25 gal
Worst day waves wind 50 mile range
Best day wind and waves probably 75 miles...
I have a 150 yammi on serenity, it’s 22ft 24 w offshore bracket and those numbers are what it gets.
Bought the bags from amazon, used them today sealing up some salmon, worked perfectly, good quality product, thanks!!
The bad part isn’t the $1000s of dollars, it’s the month/s off the water while your boat sits in a lot somewhere waiting it’s turn
Can’t wait to hear how you did:). Thank the tuna gods for this year!
Ooh, cheap! I’m going to have to try those!
You don’t know if you don’t ask:)
For me, I use a high end food saver, mine will do 100 consecutive seals without overheating. I have had it for 6 years now, but they don’t make...
Fuck, lol, I already committed to go somewhere with my wife, Friday looks like a beautiful day on the water, best day for a while.
Ha ha ha! I was just thinking that I could re-arrange the deep freeze, lol
That’s an unnamed tuna town resident doing the tuna dance
Yeah that’s pretty much what I’ve been running into, fish swallowing the hook so far you can’t see it, I have been tying up hooks on short leaders...
Took a couple vets out during WTC. Mike

I have plugged my...
I have no idea, it did not seem to be attached to the meat or the skin

I’m soooo confused? They make an outboard that doesn’t have a small hydraulic cylinder bolted to a short lever arm? Whadahuh?
I know! Let’s take...
To be correct it needs to fill you tank in 4-8 min
2gal a min would be 16 gal in 8 min, pretty short of the goal. So it may work marginally.
Easy, I retired from the Air Force:)
And yet I tie lots of knots:)
Ahh, got it:)
I get mine from Merino’s the day before and load it
But I thought they opened at
Like 5 for ice? You should call
Holy crap! What’s that for? Salmon,tuna,rockfish,ling cod and Hali! Ha ha
And your just nextdoor:) I live in enumclaw:)
im telling you it’s phenomenal out there, that was the product of a single bait stop that lasted almost 2 hours:)
My current setup is 6 in the back and 4 on top:)
I just need a couple more for the backup rods, ha ha
Right now we put a person on the troll fish...

What sharks are about the size of blue sharks but they are grey?
I’ll stick with jars:). It makes me happy to see rows and rows of them lined up on the shelves. Same thing with my deep freeze filled to the brim...
Mine too, is your buddy my buddy:)

The Pabst T-shirt gives it away

Last year I put...

It was my pleasure, the one gentleman had a prosthetic leg which I was concerned about but he did good and he caught some tuna:)
Stuffed the boat on two bait stops and headed home at 1030.....am!
Yeah it was like the old days out there! Plus it helps when you head out at 530 and the run is 90 min:). Trolling by 7
67 deg water
They had never been tuna fishing before and they got the full experience, trolling hookups, Jumpers, boils, bait hookups and jig hookups:)
Killed it, 17 fish by noon
filling in at the last min due to others breakdowns.
Anyone got some good intel to help me get these guys some fish would be greatly appreciated....
I’m just trying to get some vets on fish tomorrow..
By the end we were out of fresh bait so we just took the floaters and weighted the line and the weights sinking made it look like they were...
these guys would make a good WTC crew, if I were so inclined, ha ha

In keeping with our name:)
I’m going tomorrow as well:)
I can’t believe you said tides
You trying to screw us poor little guys?
Thanks for the food and the chat! We had a good time:)
We will be coming by:)

There’s always Tacoma marine repair if you can’t find something local.
