Couldn’t stand it anymore.

After putting off prospecting for early tuna a couple different times, Todays forcast was too good to pass up.

pointed SW & put lines in @ 20/10..
30 seconds after the troll rods were set 2 reels start screaming.
What a great sound after 10 months!

Would convert 1-2 on bait on each troll bite, then had to reset & troll again.

did this for about an hour until it just shut off.

with just me, MrFish11 and another friend on the boat, It worked out pretty good, since none of us wanted a pile of fish to clean anyways.

Nice!! I'm still trying to get out on the water. I'm new to saltwater fishing and have never been before! I'd love to catch some tuna! I saw there were 428 BFT caught today..

Nah .my July gas is only for salmon. I'll wait till August.
I don't need to be the first for tuna or the last, I just need it to be productive and reasonable.
I’m on 12 all of August:)

I heard someone did a lot of chumming to help get all those fish in the boat.

You write that like it is unexpected or something.....

I CANNOT go back to back 3am mornings on 2 hrs of sleep. And my equilibrium does not do well in a bean bag. I need the captains seat and I am good to go. #8

Fuuuuck, I'm getting too old for this shit....

until this Thursday I guess.....

Awesome, so glad it is time. You say the 20/10 line, how many miles out is that for us noobs?
About 53 NM from the GH bouy. Figure another 10 or so to the marina?
