I won't go over all the details again (Matt covered them in his posting). It was a steady plunker bite the whole drift with 2-3 fish being hooked up at any given time. There were a lot of casualties due to lighter lines, way too many tangles, and some lack of experience. There was even an asshole out there with an Ugly Stik bass rod (the kind you see at Walmart with the clear tip). This guy was so dumb he didn't even have the reel clamp on his reel! When he hooked a fish, his reel came off of the rod! Another angler and deckhand grabbed the clamp from his tackle box and put it back together with the fish still on. There were people getting broke off on 30 and 40lb test and this guy was using 25! After what seemed like an hour of running up and down the rail and around the corner and back... color. A little bit longer and that Ugly Stik bent in half, they gaff the fish and it makes a beautiful thud on the deck. About 45 pounds. Biggest tuna I have caught. Why? I wasn't getting bit at all on the 60 or 40 Fluoro. Was frustrating to watch for hours all the people around me get bit while I wasn't. Sure enough as soon as a cast that 25lb test out, Wham! After that I went back to 40lb and never got bit again. Crew was fantastic. Especially the younger deckhand named Kale. I would not have landed that fish without their help sorting all the tangles (and there were a lot).
