Found the fish 10 miles west of the 209. Spotted truns dipping and started brailing bait. Tuna charged boat, massave boils all around the boat. I got bit on the 40 pound, dumped it 10 minuts lator. Rebait and get bit instantly got, short story almost 2 hours lator get chewed off 30 feet from boat.


This is where we were, note lil yellow bird.

Went looking again, spotted a singal turn working, bunch of bait goes overboard, game on, boils everywhere. My buddy Kendall gets bit on a mack using 60lb. 40 times around the boat and 2 hours lator, fish is as close as 20 down. And pow. Fuck!


Here are some action shots..

Ah Man Simon!!! What a rush and bummer all at the same time!!

You guys still did good though........ getting in the area is one thing....... getting bit (and more than once) is another thing.

There is something about those little yellow birds!!

This report gets me pumped!!!

Even though you didn't get one, you guys still did one hell of a solid job IMO!!!

The unknown fisherman:p:
