Zane just texted me these shots of a few lucky anglers that came prepared for whats out there....



"Markus from the New Lo-An returned this morning with 34 Bluefin Tuna, 9 Yellowtail and 1 Dorado on his 1.5 day trip. 20 of the Tuna were 55 to 124 pounds!! Action is still great and loads are filling up quickly. Come prepared with heavy gear and determination!"

    Markus told me that of the initial 12 hook-ups only three were landed. Despite the 'talk' on the way out advising fishing nothing less than 40, and 50 with a two-speed being best, many were hooked on 30. Several hour-plus battles ended badly. The guy with the white spinning rod actually landed his fish!

    Markus feels that when that many fish get farmed, that it has a tendency to pull the fish away from the boat. So you are not only losing your fish, you are affecting the whole operation. Imagine the excitement if another 30 bigger grade Bluefin were included in the counts.

    Marcus sounded deflated on the report. He said the passengers brought gear "wholly inappropriate" for this type of fishing. Even my wife was laughing at the report!

    My dad introduced myself and my brother to fishing with the "coffee grinder" backwards, eventually we switched to conventional but he always did great with what he knew and loved. Miss those early days on the piers for sure.

    Can someone elaborate on Markus' theory below? Please excuse my ignorance... But I'm not exactly understanding it.

    If you have an eager school of fish to bite & majority of initial hook-ups get busted off, the fish that were hooked sound & get the fuck out, the other fish follow.....
    Bye-bye wfo bite!
