    Just returned from a 1.5 on the Aztec. Morning fishing looked like it was going to be good. We slid on a good size school of bluefin had a few strikes but a seiner showed up and crossed our chump line. The seiner was close enough that we could see their crew giving us the finger. As soon as the seiner showed up the fish dove down. The rest of the day was tuff fishing but the captain didn't give up. He kept heading south looking for albacore. We were ready to give it up when at 7:30 he found a school and we landed 28 albies in 45min for 14 guys. Hats off to the captain for not giving up.

    If you haven't fished with Tom on the Aztec you can't imagine how hard he works...He's got great pride in the boat (he completely re did it a couple of years ago) and he just doesn't give up...
