Met the crew at the Ilwaco boat ramp at 0600 this morning. I told them all 0615 but they were waiting for me when I pulled in at 0600, I guess they were eager beavers lol. Launched the boat and the bait dock was not open yet, called DG and he said it was opening at 0645 and I needed to bring bait lol. Picked up bait at 0645 amd we headed west The run out was really nice, no fog and it was 25-30 mph all the way out. Water started cleanig up around the 40 line but water temp was not real warm, 59 degrees. Ended up at the 46.22 x 124.43.

aroun the 42 saw some jumpers and Jeff hooked one with a jig. got it in and we started trolling west. went not even a mile and hooked up on the troll, started converting on bait and iron and ended up with a nice stop 12-15 fish. Back on troll and hook up in same area and again convert on bait and iron. we did that same routine two are three times more. Hooked four troll fish and landed three. The rest of our fish were split between bait and iron, almost equally.
Ended the day with 55 fish, largest was 35# and best part was we were headed East at 1300 at 30mph and only burned 40 gallons of fuel for the day. The whales put on quite a show on the way in also..

This was the best day tuna fishing that I have had in 12 years, Most fish ever and first time done so early. I have caught a couple of fish over 40# but that was quite a while ago. Jeff (Ironman lol), Emery,Randy and Tony, thanks for a great day on the pond
