At 8:08....."yawnnnnn, just another yellowfin", I think many of us would kill to yawn like that.

Sad to think nowadays when a boat comes home with 50 fish, we call that wide open.

I see nothing but cheap jigmasters and senators in that video, oh what have we become?

You don't even have to go back that far for that kind of fishing, it will happen again.

You know, I've been in a few bites like that, three at least on yellowfin tuna, and one on 40lb albacore. The difference isn't how wide open the bite is, or the numbers of feeding tuna around the boat...the difference is in how many we choose (or are allowed) to take before driving away from the fish.

Personally, I would stay and fish all day, but after four or five of the little schoolies, I would be using 15lb line and releasing everything.
