    Spend 7,890 days at sea you’ll figure it out

    Both of the other fish I’m pretty sure were fly lined dines.

    I've fished the Old Glory before and witnessed Klay hook a disproportionate number of fish on that trip. Nobody could figure it out. He must be doing all of subtle things right, more often than the other anglers.

    does that mean that all these schools of fish that everyone is pulling up on and not getting to bite, are actually biting if youre a good fisherman?

    No it comes down to getting your bait to be where a fish would most likely bite. Then just depends on luck. IMO

    Luck....3 out of 15 might be luck...100% of the fish for the day...not so much.
    there are definitely subtle things to fishing line and boat shy tuna that are hard for some people to recognize....id list them but the subject has been beat to death

    Toss a stickbait on the long rod, hook up and hand off.

    Genuus!!!

    A real back saver.

    Nice report.

    OLD GLORY

    Fished this boat twice of 14 day period recently for those bluefin, who this year, more often than not, show but don't play.

    First trip - something like 17 guys, 9BF 6YT. I had a great day, hooked 4BF, lost 1 and handed of one. Had no problem getting bit on 30#. Got my ASS HANDED TO ME on 25# on wrong rod (Phenix HAX 907|ML), Never had a rod so 'fully loaded' AND fish at 70 feet, but COULD NOT LIFT, fish could not pull drag, it was a 5 minute STALE MATE! Once accomplished, put reel on diferent astick.

    Second trip - 14 guys on board and all I see is 6 tackle boxes, WTF? Fish Count was something like 8YT & 1YTF. I hooked and handed one of the YT's.

    Both Trips Captain Kley and crew fished/worked as hard, if not harder, than any crew I've witnessed in years. First trip he went 80+ miles and was 2.5hr late coming in. He went 80+ and STAYED, not work our way home as most due. Second trip we had sonar fish but no biters.

    Every Landing has a 'schedule of runs' like 'the half day bot', the overnite boat, 'the 1.5 day or more boat', etc. AND these boats a

    Every Landing

    ... And these boats have to run 'rain or shine' basically.

    Old Glory, H & M's overnite boat is one of these. Limited to 36 guys per trip (weekends generally sold out) but very, very light loads (8 to 15) mid week. The Captains and crew fish very hard and don't let their reported Departure Time or Arrival Time dictate.

    Figured out the tackle box delema when I realized 8 RENTAL RODS and 6 anglers! Made me realize crew works harder than I thought!

    Great Boat - Keep doning what ur doing Captain Kley & Captain Junior!
