    Bruce and the crew put us on crazy fishing everyone caught all they wanted,the highlight of the trip was 2 old guys from Illinois came out for a bucket list trip.benny 78 yrs bill 79 yrs two close buddy's never tuna fished.i could see bill was having trouble getting his bait out so I would cast my rod out bow and hand him the rod,bit right away,I followed him around until he landed the fish.after about 4 yf in a row his hands cramped up like far a claw and his tuna catching days are probably over.the 2 old boys never fished the second day,but props to guys that age to travel that far to do a bucket list tuna trip.it was awesome to be a part of it.great weather,great fishing ,great company.i am still stoked about those 2!

    Good job. Nothing like getting someone, who's having trouble, into fish.

    Awesome that a handful of schoolie yellowfin can get some old-timers stoked like that. That's what we all love about fishing. A lot of times it doesn't matter how big they are or how many you catch that make a trip memorable. Thanks for doing what hopefully we all would have done and helped those guys realize a dream.

    Now this is a great story, and a good read. Great boat and great crew, nice to read a thread that is positive, instead of someone crying about this or that.

    Isn't it great to be unselfish? It seems like when you are young (whatever the age is) it is all about personal bests. At a certain point, different for everyone, you finally wake up and realize that killing another fish or bird or deer or whatever for yourself doesn't begin to equal the satisfaction that comes from helping someone else have a special day. You did it right!

    Just as an aside, I have found that the solution for the cramping older hands is to switch-off to spinning gear every couple of fish. That way you change the gripping and winding hands, and with the quality of spinning tackle available now you still can fight them effectively.
