    Finally after a year of chasing blue fin, broken line,being sawed off by a bigger model on Lighter line, being spoiled on 20 lbs because they won’t bite the bigger line. Finally the first tuna to hit the deck on my boat. Was out Wednesday early morning chasing huge foamers around Carlsbad area. For no biters… all show no go,until about 3:00 in the afternoon. I find one of the liveliest sardine left in the bait tank,pinned the circle hook in the butt and let him go .. this guy was hauling ass and suddenly I get picked up… let him run for a good 7 seconds and I start winding come tight,and the fight is on … it felt great.. after about a 15 minute fight he hits the deck and I feel a huge relief… finally after so many times of getting up at 3 am to go chase them… I finally got one on my own boat. The smile on my face says it all.
