We departed the slip on one of the club’s Cobia 22 center consoles at Dana Landing about 6:45 AM this morning. Got a full scoop of bait (some went into a bucket) and off we went towards and 302. We picked up 3 yellowtail on a paddy halfway to our destination and then settled in near the 302 drifting and soaking baits. Finally got some yellowfin busting around the boat and hooked and landed one decent 15 pounder. That was it for most of the day. Around 3:00 we headed for home and as we were crossing the 9 mile bank we came across a big foamer of tuna. We had a good approach and were able to get 4 or 5 good casts off with the poppers and colt snipers for nothing. One of the other guys threw out a sardine on 20 pound test and got hooked up. It was a long battle but we finally were able to get the fish up. Turned out to be a nice sized bluefin tuna. Those bluefin are close! Best part, step off the boat and no boat cleaning.
