    pb.JPG First post, yup I'm a lurker..

    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!

    Markus is a class-act and arguably the best fisherman ive ever met.

    Usually neither. They hook them in the back behind the head so that they swim more normally as the kite pulls on them.

    I found that a long fluoro leader helps when fishing bait. I used 30 feet of 80# fluoro with a circle hook in the top of the head for most stealth. It was the only bait fish we caught on our trip. Next time I might add a few feet of 100 or 130 fluoro to the end with a small, heavy-rated swivel, but at a minimum I'd be using 25 feet of fluoro.

    And if you don't get enough macks for bait and you aren't running far, ask the captain if you can make some. Usually worth it to have a tank of just macks.

    When they go out like 1 - 2 times a year on a sporty, some guys opt. for quantity. Guys with boats make the same decision... Sometimes you want to try to get lucky with a trophy, sometimes you feel like getting hooked up several times would be better for that trip. We all make both decisions on several factors.
    The New Lo Ann and PQ understand very well that decision, and a trip for trophies sometimes gets Skunked. If you want a trophy, everybody says this year is likely your one lifetime chance at that (in socal). And chosing those boats is def. the best choice. I bet the fact the YF bite shut off by sieners, helped them choose to go for BF. The guys that got off that boat must be pinching themselves and regretting it.

    Doubt they are thinking that, It was 8 fish for 27 passengers....
    No doubt fish of a lifetime for those who connected & complete the mission!
