This is unheard and unseen for me (10+ years of San Diego area Pelagic fishing).
Yes!! 5 miles from the OC harbor - Tuna!! most are 30lb class with ocasional bigger models,
live, dead sardines, chunk, everything worked.. fished from 7:30 to 9:30 with bunch of boats on the paddie, 11 total body count 8 YFT and 3 - "Chicken" BFT, did not have a proper time to "light up the cigarette".
Left them biting, ran out off fishbox space and bait.

Trick was - 25 lb floro with circle hooks, better butt pinned dines..
This is insane season.... 5 miles...

What am I going to do with 200lb of tuna? (good problem) :) ...

I noticed your fish are still whole.I like to gut all fish before we head in.Just makes cleaning a lot less messy.

I like the 2 lb rat yellow in your avitar. I'm sure your kids would appreciate you leaving that one for them to catch in 5 years. With all those fish why would you keep that, then post what you did?
