Hell of a fish! Congrats!

Thank you! Still riding the stoke from this weekend, yesterday was my happiest Monday in the office in my entire life!!

Seems like the yellowfin are starting to move in now as well and they are much better size than last year.

Who wants to buy a boat?

Biggest Halco popper that they make, mine actually inhaled the thing and fisherman;s processing ended up cutting it out of him.

Color did not matter, all fish we caught on different colors. My buddy got 2 over 100 on the biggest orca they make in blue mackerel.

Epic my friend. Saw some spotter plane pics on Fishdope that were incredible. It looks like you found the big boys they were talking about. Thanks for the post. :appl:

Evan is definitely an up and coming 'Fresh ' skipper He works hard at the profession.... Now - how many people were on the boat? Limit style Bluefin fishing is awesome.... Remember the limit is '2" per person.... Congrats on a EPIC day on the water....

I was on the trip with Matt and we had 6 people on board. 4 anglers, captain and deckhand. We stopped short of limits as we ran out of room in the kill bag.

Very aware of what the limit is but appreciate the heads up.... We all made a decision to stop fishing early out of respect for the bluefin/not wanting to see fish go to waste sitting on a hot deck

Awesome.great report glad you had fun. My buddies got them around 6:00 pm in rough conditions. 3 for two guys. They let go two 60plus fish wanting to land one of the VWs eating out of their hands. They could have free gagged one. Lol but not there style.
