great write up and as usual, absolutely amazing pictures
Thanks again...it was a blast.
Hell yeah! Way to do that homework to find 'em and way to throw the whole arsenal at 'em to get 'em to bite!
I have a 3.5 day trip and a 10 day trip coming up, so I've been out practicing throwing/working poppers pretty much every chance I get.
Way to go man you scored! What size/type of line do you run on your Gosa 6000?
Just keep popping
Good stuff man!
I just got back from a trip to Troncones, Mexico, where I spent an entire week throwing this same popper (blue and silver medium sized halco "roosta") to big roosterfish and jack crevalle.
To be able to fish the same exact way in my backyard and catch tuna like this is so awesome.
Thanks. I use fishdope for chlorophyll and water temp (as well as other incredible info - my favorite of which is when the spotter plane has a report with pics of where the fish are).
Thanks Billy. We all have to try to up our game with your awesome reports and videos now....lol.
Your welcome Chris! I had a great time fishing with you as well. Considering these were the first tuna you have ever gaffed, I would say you are a natural. Your photo skills ain't half bad either....lol.
40# maxcuatro, 2 feet of 50# fluro leader.
I call BS.....that you found a fish that was unwilling to bite any of your offerings (damn uppity YT). As always, great pics and post.
Dafug camera or phone is that? Your pics look better than everyone else's!
Nice work Dad!!! Your little one will be smashing the popper off the bow before you know it !! My little man is 8 now he Loves it!!!
Your the best Jonathan, way to get er done!
That's a popping good time right there! Thanks, Jonathan!
Damn! Nice work... that's why we have so many lures in the tackle box. Keep trying until you find what works. Great job.
Nice catch! Is that the 165 size or the 135? Looks like the 165...
