    Unbelievable! No doubt the 2016 Tuna champ! You certainly have the talent. Very jealous.

    Now let's address the Elephant in the room....

    Do you have a side scanner on your rig?

    Can I be part of your "Fishing Network"?

    Lastly and probably most important....

    Where the heck do you put all that fish? You are like a mini Seiner

    I know I know, I'm headed back to the shallow end.

    Billy, are you thinking of starting the 6 pack again? I think you are gaining a lot of followers if you do. Nice job.

    Great Job Billy. Been reading your stuff all year. I caught a 60# bluefin in early June when you were holding class below the border. Haven't been out since until this week with my new boat, your still teaching the course. Thanks for keeping it real.

    I believe 61 gallons. Its a custom one made. Mark sells a stock one which is 2 inches shorter than this one. Ill carry all the bait i can while keeping my fuel efficiency.

    I put a lot of planning into my boat when i got her bare. I know this boat very well. Have cost and receipts of everythign to the t.

    Great choice of boat.

    Last year, I asked my dad while we were on a 2 day if he wanted to go on a super long range trip now that I'm finally able to do so financially…. He declined and said he would rather have a 18 foot boat and do local trips than go on that…..
    The following month, I found my parker and its all thanks to him.

    Also, i havent been fishing for over 5 years….. it was him that started this all up again for me with a simple "will you go fishing with me?'

    so i totally get where you are coming from.

    Thanks for all the support.

    Ive just never even looked at any of that… Im sure it will probably make me better, but at this time, just not worth the effort for me vs the amount i catch now.

    one day.

    Thank you for the kind words!

    Now let me answer your questions:

    1. I do not have side scan. i have side structure scan but dont use it for tuna.

    2. Sure, youre part of my net work now. lol

    3. I dont freeze any fish. I keep just a few pounds for myself then share the rest.

    GoPro videos?

    Share the love!
    some of us can't figure out whether to throw underhand or overhand, and myself a boil sounds like a thing reserved for the M.D.

    Great report; photos worth a thousand mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm's
