    Well, Ive been lacking with reports this year on this forum but life has been busy. With fishing, working, and family, it leaves me very little time to post on here. Many times, I just call in to Fishdope and leave my info on their as well as posting updates on my Instagram (billykfitness) and Facebook page.

    This year has absolutely been incredible with trophy fish. I stopped keeping track after 30-35 of these bluefin.

    Last fish was just a few days ago at the 381. Plenty of fish still there. Most of my fish have been yummy fish but still quite a few bait fish included.

    To be able to do this in a 23 foot boat and catch tuna in 100-200-300 lb class in our back yard is increble.


    Many, myself included, do not have the resources to go on 10 day plus trips, travel far, or away from my family to go chase big tuna. So to be able to do it here and catch them consistently for months has been a blessing.

    By all means, I am NO expert at this However I feel as if my approach has been able to yield many fish not just for myself but for my other friends with boats as well. I've been invited to do a seminar, this Saturday at 12:30, at Fishermans landing to share my methods, gear, tactics, and anything I can help others catch a fish of a lifetime.

    my way is not the only way but just some little things I've found that has worked consistently.

    I would love to see and meet some of you there.

    This Saturday, Fishermans landing, November 4th, main stage at 12:30.

    Here is a little sample of some fish from here past few months.

    Billy, I cant make it to the event but hopefully someone is able to tape it so many of us can watch it at a later time. Even if only we learn a small percentage of what you know, it would be awesome. Thanks for all the posts and great stuff on IG.

    Another great season for you, Billy! WTG...Many of us live vicariously through your posts and videos. The pelagic season is far from over back home and wish I could make your seminar. Best wishes onstage, I'm sure you'll do fine. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and tactics with us "common" anglers in what has been an unprecedented season the last 3 years on our local BFT. Looking forward till the day we cross paths but until then I wish you BENT rods, BIG smiles, and even BIGGER fish! Continued success, brother and keep it coming...

    Your operation seems definitely one of the best. Your early season attention to preparation was obvious and commendable. Your reports are spot on and informative. All good stuff. Great season. Congrats and thanks.

    What a year for you, I look forward to see how long these fish stay around for this year. They might not ever leave and we will be in for a bluefin filled winter.
