Just got back from a trip on the Chief. Had a case of bluefin fever that needed to be cured. Left Monday for the Cortez. Fished flat falls that night for no love. Morning found us on the hunt . Schools seem to appear around 8am and it was game on. No jumbos but steady action on the 50 to 75lb stuff. When the dust cleared we had limits for passengers and crew. Great fun size. Captain Rick and crew worked their butts off. TheChief is a great boat to fish on ! Meals were quite excellent, thanks to Chef Blake. Most fish caught on 30lb with a 1/0 hook. Get out there and get yourself so of these beautiful fish

Nice job. Noticed the crew slit the throat to bleed on your tuna. Goes to show the Chiefs crew knows what they are doing. You have excellent sashimi ahead of you my friend.

Can’t count how many times a boats crew hasn’t done that to my fish. I ended up having to do it myself and they ended up learning a lesson.

    What lesson did you teach them?

    Very nice. Rick Russel was on our crew years ago, and is very conscientious, as well as being a good guy. He always delivers 100% and I heartily endorse all his endeavors. Congrats on your limits.

    Congrats on a great trip! And I agree with you 100%, once you get to check off the bucket list cow, those are the very best size to keep a smile on your face and your blood pressure in control. You won't get the picture in Western Outdoor News, but you get plenty of great eats and an excellent fight. My favorite size too.
