Left around 6am headed to the 425 saw the tuna pen there. Found couple of paddys but they were dry. Saw boils but no biters there. Then around 9am headed to the 371. Found a paddy for 1 yellowtail and 2 fat bonita. On Live bait. Then trolled around for nothing. Saw a nice size paddy with few jumpers and long soaked live bait with chum. We get bit 3 rods go off. I guess the key was to long soak and chum. Metered tuna everywhere but it was patients that got us the fish.

Yeah those are funny looking bonita. Definitely not skipjack, almost have some kawa kawa markings. Maybe just the angle or how their stripes faded. I don't see the 60 lb bluefin though?
