Made the long run to the Tanner where we marked lots of fish but few bites.Ended connecting right at sunset on a nice 135lb fish after dragging the kite and drifting over fish all day.We had a good blow up on a drifted flyer but didn't stick.Had a live mackerel on the plunker down all night that didn't get touched.The water cooled down a bit from the last trip and less bigger fish around.The fish weighed 121 gilled and gutted for those interested.It was friend Duane's biggest tuna, the fish fought like it was much bigger.The fish stayed on the surface most of the time .Fun fight.
