went out with some buddys and got on the yfin. 12 out of Oside
Total count for the day was 21 yfin 1 dodo.
Got my buddy on video with his gaffing "skills" our poor friend Andre with the Orange hat on lost 3 fish in a row and looks like someone peed in his Cheerios.

Whats the best way to gaff a tuna or a yellowtail? For the best quality fish. I always seem to get them near the gills and they bleed everywhere.

At one point it looks like he's getting ready to shoot pool,at least all you guys seem like good sports,I prefer a much longer gaff,good times!

Foul tip on first tail shot, two swings and misses, that was a strike out. Execellent video and attitudes, wish we could see the other 20 at bats. Good stuff and congrats on your catch.:D

Yeah I fish to have fun, if I loose one no biggie. I don't understand ticked off fisherman?
I'm Blessed to just be out there instead of on the freeway in rush hour traffic.

    In your defense, you guys need a six or eight foot gaff.

    And a smaller hook might help. These arent swordfish.

    Damn, that was funny.
