    Left San Diego bay at 5:15ish and went straight south cut through the islands and made a bee line for the knuckle. Stopped on a bird school and threw poppers for probably a 18 pound bonito and threw it back. Kept going and made and stoped on more birds this time they were bluefin so we threw on them for nada so we had the grand idea of busting out the brand new mad macs and taking them for a spin. Put them in one on a 80 pound set up the other on a 100 pound set up. I shit you not 15 minutes later and we are bit these things work. 10 minutes later 50 pound bluefin in the boat. Our friends first bluefin. Put the mad macs back out 10 minutes later BIT AGAIN this one was bigger so I get on the rod and put the wood to it pulling as hard as I can for the most part and kill it in 20 minutes. First 100 pound bluefin for me and the boat. It bent our gaff as well. After that no more troll fish. We look around and find fomers and I louse one on the popper and about a hour later my dad nails one on the mint tady 45 get him up in 10 minutes and gaff his ass another 50 pound bluefin on the boat. Now we have a problem at this point we have no more room for fish so we decide we had our fun for the day we all boated a fish so we go in happy as can be.

    That is a great and well written report, short and to the point, I guess it helps that it was a great day on the water.
    10 years ago, this would have been a fairy tail of a report, and nobody would have believe it. THE GOOD OLD DAYS are right now!
    Well done brother!

    I think we were talking to you on 72- madmax endorsed by Mel Gibson? Strong work! What is the difference in the madmacs, 240 and 140?
