Living in SoCal most of my life I've been spoiled with the tuna fishing.
I've been here on the East Coast for 15 years now and have had some great fishing, but this Vessel, crew and weather spoiled me again!!
Got lucky on this invite :cheers:



Owner and Captain Jason put us on the fish, and called the weather just right.
Stopped on the Tails at sunset and fished until sunrise.
I was amazed at the small piece of water we were fishing and the amount of boats!
Had to be 150-200 vessels and all drifting in sync and very close(I'm sure people had fender ready):D
Never shut the fish down!
Fish were on the jig and bait and most between 70-90 lbs
Bite was on until 3-4am and for us, off like a switch at 4 or so.
The boat had limits (15) for the first trip and went 9-10 on the second.
Back in Montauk for bloody's by 9am.

What a sweet ride!!!

Some pics and video from both trips.
