Took some buddies to fish and dive the front side of SCI on Wednesday 5/12. Water at the island was 63-65 and crystal clear blue with little current. Fishing was pretty slow.
We decided to head home around 2PM and ran into schools of bluefin and bonito foaming on anchovies just a few miles off the south end of the island.
Got a couple decent shot at them and stuck one on the surface iron.
Running low on time and fuel, we decided to keep heading for home.
Didn’t see much on the way in, lots of dead water from inside the 43 all the way to the coast.

**Edit: forgot to mention, we did see a couple schools of breezers in the morning between the N9 and the 182 **

Nice! On the surface iron. I have yet to catch a tuna on surface iron.

Josh- So glad your story didn't end with " came unbuttoned". Bad ass picture right there! Congratulations on that one for sure.
