    Great report and pics and NICE TUNA guys. Glad your friend caught his 1st bluefin, ate the heart!!
    Your friend is too young for shoulder surgery already. I've had 8 since 2008, on the mend again.
    Let him heal up some more and enjoy some sashimi. LOL LOL
    He injured it in a freak accident at our high school baseball practice

    Super cool trip! When I read the title I thought the tuna was maybe a ginger, like a golden color phase in grouper or something.

    For those who don't know ..... a 27% BETTER hook up ratio....running a short shanked double stainless Mustad hook on the center ring.... no swivel needed. Points out. Don't forget the tie wrap around the shank.... after sliding it on... for insurance. This from 10s of thousands of hours trolling and logging catch and hookup ratios. Try it....you'll like it. Good luck.
    27% better than a single, or trebble?

    I'm to smart to figure out how to edit this.

    27% better than a single with b.bearing swivel. For those who haven't spent days and weeks working a lure "test tank".... the problem with the single and swivel in the middle.position is the hook riding "tip up".... along side the lure while it's in motion..... leaving the center position with a bad hook up ratio... for tuna. Saw it hundreds of times.... in The rank.... and on the water.

    I would like to see how a test tank works! Probably interesting! I could yell "Hoookup!" Over and over.
