Spent three hours early this morning chasing around some good sized BFT. They were up crashing around bait pretty good, but we couldn't buy a bite - we threw everything we had at 'em. Fun to watch, but pretty demoralizing :finger:

Ended up running inside and found a paddy at 17 over 20 that was loaded with small 5 pound yellowtail. Screwing around with the 20 pound test and ended up almost getting smoked - like down to the last 20 yards of Spectra - before I was able to finally turn around the only tuna we would boat today.

Okay, respectful but “ Big ones”. ??? Reminds me of a Whore that says “ that’s the nicest one I’ve ever seen”

Everyone's a critic...
To be clear, the "big ones" were the big boys that we found in the morning by the 425 that we couldn't get to go (the screen shot of my Simrad). But I'm sure you probably figured that one out...

Nice job on light line!!! We had trouble getting them to chew as well. Took a lot of live chum and chunk to get 2...

All those Sundays at Church finally paid off cuz that's a miracle on 20# bet you were really confident about landing that one about halfway through the spool.

Nice catch Thanks for the Intel!

Today was my 60th, I kept saying to myself, just let me see it and I'm happy. Next thing you know, it's in the boat.
Better than the dumb shirt my wife got me for my one and only present :rolleyes:

In the last 50 years out of San Diego that "little bft" would have won a hell of a lot of tournaments.
Just saying , don't get too cocky about local tuna.
In my book that's a hell of a fish.

Nice one Ron!

That thing probably ate one of the 5 lb yellows you hooked :)

Didn't you get a 100+ on 30lb last year? You're just a glutton for punishment aren't you....
