284 yellowfin tuna caught by Jay fishing 16 oz sinker rig. The big fish hit around 630Am. Couple other smaller models caught flying. Day just started. More to come. Beautiful weather.
You might be right. With the recent reports of 80# line fish I'm sure there will be a lot of people dropping down, be nice to also know of the people that lose fish on 80% also.In a flyline application I think 80lb is the sweet spot for max abrasion resistance combined with light enough line to allow the bait to swim.
Sounds like life at it's finest on the Big X!! Sweet. Keep having fun !Today team hoo on the Excel scored 4 cows and many tuna in the 80-140 mark. Not a bad way to start the first full day of tuna fishing. We are now watching the chiefs/new England overtime game on the 2 big screen tv’s onboard. Life is great on the BIG X.
80lb was also the cause of a lot of losses on that same trip.The “light line” was responsible for some big ones on the recent Rooster trip, Lower Banks. Like a Super Cow at 355! Stamina will come into play as well as confidence in our gear, connections and knots. Sano will be the name of the game. Pretty much a drift fishing deal or slide one back if run’n’gun. I’m so frickin ready to get on the boat!
Flat Clam weather and Cabo within sight, I love that fishing destination.Today team hoo on the Excel scored 4 cows and many tuna in the 80-140 mark.

Thanks for the on the water play by play color!Ok the tuna showed up around 10. Maybe they were partying to much on the eclipse. . Most of the tuna are smaller in weight than yesterday. Tuna from 20-80 lbs with the average going 50-60 lbs. lots of fish in the area. Let’s see if the bigger grade moves in. Stay tuned.
