I only have minor details at the moment. I haven't fully debriefed my boat partner Frank. He went out yesterday( I couldn't go, son had hockey tourney) with his buddy Bob. Later in the day he answered my text "How'd you make out?" with this; "It's Big"!

They were having a tough day landing YFT. A couple break off and missed gaffs. He said Bob dropped a blue and white jig down deep(200-300'). He felt something but wasn't sure it was a fish until they got it to the surface where Bob got his ass kicked. It took both of them to gaff it and get it on board. I'll post more pics and info as I get it.

Tell him congrats and "welcome to the club". The one I caught earlier this year was similar story. Dropping a jig for tuna and up comes an Opah. They are a strange fight and you just cant tell what it is until color.

We heard this on the radio as well. They weren't far from where we were. Not very far out, I want to say we were only 10 miles off mission bay at the time.

Nice catch, the only thing as good as fishing is hockey
