Thank you for the wonderful report. Actually hearing about the fight, especially when it is written very well, provides a great deal of enjoyment for those of us who will never see, must less catch, a 300+ tuna.

Congratulations and kudos.....both for the fish!! and the report.

[ If I may, one question: Do the huge tuna (which must be quite old) taste as good as the 40lb youngsters? I've never heard anyone say.]

I use the Eagle Claw 8/0 2005’s at Cedros with Macs and the guys say they’re too big until they end up borrowing mine... I always take extras!

I love the Excel!

I wanna be Tim when I grow up but I’m working on it in the meantime!

Tim,
I have read your advice on Wahoo many times, in fact it helped me catch my first ( 2 ). This trip report was excellent. Thanks for taking the time. The admiration shown to you on this forum is very much deserved. Good Luck to you sir. Sincere condolences.
Doug

congrats Tim!
many trips and many hours at the rail paying off in spades.
not all trips are a trip of a lifetime but you gotta go on as many as you can to hope to experience being right place and right time.

i guess i can always wait for second or last call for meals on on my next trip and hope for a good bite and maybe a fish of a lifetime!

Sorry about the loss of your Mom ..nothing is more important than family.

Always good to do something you are passionate about while you are in the long grieving process.

Congratulations on an epic trip and the 2 supers on Stand UP gear ! it is great to hear about that part as well . The Rail has changed things but the Harness still has it's place and applications.

Tim, sorry to hear about your mom.

Loved your story, felt like I was there. I’m sure your mother was there also.

3 supers in one year, crazy. Just wondering how many supers you have under your belt? Thanks for the report.
