Just got back from another amazing trip about the New-Low-Ann.
My self and several of my good buddies along with my brother in law booked a spot a few weeks ago. Trip started down at Mitches with some Sword fish tacos along with multiple beer’s. Jumped on the boat around 9:15 it was running a bit late coming back from an overnight.
Marcus was running this trip after a Safty rundown we talked fishing. Plan was to turn around and take a look at an area that produced on there previous trip. It’s no secret where the fleet has been fishing. Marcus said we should be on the spot some time around 1:00 AM. Continue to bull shit and drink beers on the back deck good times. Around 12:30 Am captain says he’s marking a good school the 8 or 10 of us starting dropping knife jigs and flat falls. We fished well into the night five or six different stops with no bitters. Finally around 3:30 AM I Decided to go down to my bunk for a nap. Around 5:15 Am I woke to the sounds of bluefin hitting the deck apparently right after I fell asleep the captain found a school that wanted to play. My good buddy Sean lost one and boated another fish during my brief slumber. Along with a few more people getting it done. These fish were slugs our biggest fish of the trip came during the wee hours of the morning. All fish being taken on some sort of flat fall jig. At grey light I continued to droop my sk jig got bumped once but didn’t stick. Around 6:30 AM I switched from the jig over to a sinker rig glad I did because on my first drop I get picked up on the slow fall. Click my talica 12 into gear and wind, fresh one. This fish was pissed he took a huge first run after multiple trips around the boat avoiding many tangles fish settles in in the stern. Put the real in low and start the game of inches. After about 45 minutes my first fish hits the deck solid 130 pound fish. Around 8:00 AM and after a quality breakfast burrito the boat made a move we stopped on multiple breaking fish and meter marks picking up 3 or 4 per stop. All day fish were taken on bait I fished the colt sniper and smaller sk jigs with out a bite. Didn’t see any day fish on the jig opposite form three weeks ago. I managed to scratch another 3 more fish through out the day all of my fish taken on bait either fly lined or with a light sinker. 40 pound test worked well for me during the day with a two oz rubber core sinker. My brother in law never fishing tuna had an epic battle on 30 pound test and after a little help from me and the deck hands a 75 pounder hits the deck Nice first tuna for his first fish. Sun set provides me my 5th fish sinker rig 80 pound test talica 16 killed an 80 pound fish in like 10 minutes. Sinker rig before dark was the hot ticket a few guys in our group all hooked up at sun down. After a great dinner of scallops Rosetta and vegetables . Marcus keeps on the hunt we stop on a meter mark i cast my knife jig down wind and sink it out about 350 feet it stops. I turn the handle as fast as possible fresh one!! fish hits the deck in about 10 minutes another 80 pound fish. Back on the hunt I managed to get another bite on the knife jig passing my 7th fish off to one of my buddy’s who didn’t fair well during the day. Another great trip aboard the NLA! I can’t say enough good things about this boat definitely my favorite boat for this style of fishing. Great food good times. The quality of the fish out there right now is incredible and if you spend your time at the rail good thing’s will happen.

Great report thanks for posting. Looks like the night fishing is falling off some and turning to grey light bite.
