Short story; 7 Blue fin tuna, only one under 100#, one at 278#.
Long version; Marcus started the night off with recommending we hit the BFT zone. We ended up voting to go for big BFT or small YFT and YT down south (maybe). BFT it was and there was a group that wasn't happy about it. Marcus gave them the option to get off for full refund, which they did. Good news for the rest of us. A lot of guys on the boat were not geared up for these fish. They ran up and cleared out the rental two speeds. Off we went, baited up on small sardines (3-4"), with a few macs.
Started off with three hooked at grey light on the glow flat fall, one landed. Then it was all kite fish, either macs while drifting or the plastic flying fish while trolling. We actually had a double on the troll. I was fortunate to get one on the drift with a mac. Took 2 hours to get on the deck but my PB at 120#.
Was amazing to see these fish jumping clear out of the water! We are so fortunate to be able to jump on a boat and get these fish in our waters. Marcus was telling me this type of fishing we haven't seen since the 20's.
Have to give it up to Marcus and his crew for another epic trip. Top notch boat. If you want a chance at one of these fish I highly recommend the New Lo An.
I am blessed to be able to get one of these fish. I don't get to fish as much as I would like with an 8 month old, this was my second shot at these fish this year. Thanks for reading. Good luck out there!
