Well gang we rolled at 9pm w/Capt Scott, 2nd Vinny, Tad,Rob,Matt on deck and Buddy making awesome food all trip, like killer Lasagna Dinner! Many a regular like Norm, Hammer, Justin, Kevin, Mike, Stu, many more and next thing you know we got 34 hot sticks ready to go rockin'! The wind was about 15-20+ so after loading a big load of mid dines with a few bigger, some mixed macks, we tied up off the end of the receivers until midnight for the ride out to the 43. We arrived just before dawn, and after a meter mark started dropping the flat falls, Tady9's, butterfly jigs, the whole tackle store down to 300-400ft where some big bluefin were hanging out. Long story short, it was scratch all day, 1 here, 1 there, but some some bigger model bluefin, then yellowfin started coming over the rail. Most over 50, mostly 70-90+, no small schoolies. The bait was hot, and we found a LOT of meter schools of tuna, many with lockjaw. The only real flurry was a sundower for about 8-10 fat yellowfin, and like all day, there was carnage. Many battles lost, some won. See tackle. We ended up with 19 Bluefin and 17 Yellowfin for 34 winders. Many lost. I and many joined the 0-fer club losing fish in crossovers, tangles, just fishing! HAPPY BIRTHDAY Norm Engle who got his PB 75lb yellowfin at dusk. AWESOME! Even our one veteran lady angler got a nice 75+ after a long long fight! Too cool. TACKLE some go to info if you're headed out hunting these brutes: Don't even bring 30lb or less....like bringing a pea shooter to a Lion hunt. Some tried 30-35 for a 2+hr butt kicking, most got sawed off in the end. With 30+ people on a sportboat, in crossovers, light line the first to get sawed! 40lb w/flouro=got bit more often maybe but the fights lasted 2hrs or more 50 w/flouro got bit, more hit or miss, but got some bigger fish on deck 60lb we tried it, especially with iron, butterfly and flat falls, etc worked fine but never got a bite with bait, even with nice macks pulling it out far & fine. Hooks, some used 1/0-2/0 J's and many also unbuttoned/lost fish too. A 2/0-3/0 Owner ringed or regular circle hook worked best for most landed. Sinkers...2oz sliders or 2-4oz torpedo with rubber bands 2-3ft up the line. Some had single speed reels, the fight was way longer, and brutal too. Bring 2 speeds, or borrow one, the less time on these beasts the better! Tady9. TLC Blue/Chrome, all/any Butterfly, Flat Fall, Colt Sniper a shot. We never trolled, although had the kite up for awhile, and even had a school of 200+ bluefin jumping 200yards from it, but no takers. On a big yellowfin meter mark, Justin hooked a 100lb Marlin, jumps and released. All in all a long hot brutal day on the rail. Some won, some lost-FISHING! Remember what I've always said...YOU NEVER KNOW, UNLESS YOU GO!! I'll let the pics do the talking for the fish, this old winder is beat up and tired now. Time to hit the jacuzzi and a long long nap! See you in a few weeks maybe. THANKS to Scott and the whole crew, we had another wild time on Condor. OTHERS ADD YOUR PICS to the report as I couldn't get them all!
