We took Kodak out to chase Tuna for only the 2nd trip this season. On board were three seasoned fishers, one second timer Danan and newbie Gary. South winds and confused waves made for a long trip out, the rain cleared about 20 out but the chop stayed around all day. After one 'fire drill' stop on a sighting of something with no results we got a peanut on the pink clone for the newbie and converted to a bait stop for nearly an hour before the sharks took over. Here's no longer newbie Gary bringing in a good sized Albie Master gaffer Darren was really dialed in with multiple head and jaw gaffs. After another troll fish we got another bait stop going but really had trouble finding chovie swimmers, 3/4 of the bait was scooped out from the bottom of the tank. With weights on the line to get below the birds and some patience we were able to get some biters. Grid was 37 over 50 No longer semi-newbie Danan learned the gaff skills quickly Buddy Mike brought in several nice ones- one was weighed at 28# and there were others larger and fatter. We heard a call from a Grady White crew several miles south willing to pass of an active bait stop so headed that way and joined two other boats converging including one nice Osprey. Every one slid in nicely and got on fish. The GW crew even floated a 3 gallon bag of good swimming anchovies that we netted and really enjoyed using. I didn't get a picture of the handoff and the pictures I took of the other boats didn't take. Wish I'd written down the name of the boat... A BIG thanks to the BD crews for sharing info and opportunities. We headed NE at 2 PM and Mike took the helm while I rested my tweaked back. Good day, good crew, great fish!!
