All three caught on poppers and light gear...not recommended for the faint of heart. Here's the last one over the rail, check out what's already on the deck. Here's hoping everyone gets a day like this!

Right boat, right skipper and crew, right anglers, right place, right boil of BIG bluefin. Stealthy, no power slide in front of the foamers. Cast in front of them, take up the slack...BOOM! There were no knots improperly tied, no slack line, fish always straight out from the boat while fighting them, up the rail, around the bow, back and repeat, work with the deckhands.
Everyone knows what the hot lure or bait is for the moment it changest. This lure, that line, that outfit isn't what gets the fish to gaff.
No secrets: line, lure, etc, it's in Western Outdoor News.
Good luck, go get bit, have fun, repeat

Caught on poppers with lighter conventional gear... go figure ;).

Right place, right time with limited (skilled) anglers fishing. Doesn't get much better than that... so awesome to see those big BFT back in local fishing grounds (combination of favorable conditions and way less than normal pressure from the commercial purse seiner fleet!).
