    We left early this morning on our Pelagic two day trip so we could be on the tuna grounds by lunch. I can honestly say that the bluefin population is extremely healthy in this area. Derek was lucky enough to take this 195.8 pounder on 60 pound test with an Okuma Andros 12lla and a custom seeker rod. Great job Derek! This fish was caught only 46 miles from home!!!
    WOW!

    I have slow pitch jigs that look like that. There are a lot of jigs in that style not made by Shimano.

    Flat fall or Shimano flat fall knock off. They have split ring and I've replaced mine with a 7/0 7691DT hook too.

    Nice fish!!!!
