    Those guys have a strong work ethic. Thats why I love the PQ. They don't cut corners. I saw a post of another boat today that was so misleading saying "Got a report the boat hooked up and the fish chewed up the boat but they only landed 4." Meanwhile they post some old photo of 7 fish in the 100lb range, wtf? Just be honest with people. Its fishing and not everyday is great but for a boat to mislead is a turnoff. Anyways, way to go Gavinn, Drew and crew on PQ for setting the standard on the SR fleet.

    Awesome man, good times and it all came together! Kudos to the fisherman that let you use his gear. Thanks for the report!

    Epic! Most of the flatfall bites on the sink or on the wind? How deep were the fish approximately?

    This is my first post on BD, but I was also on this trip. Pretty epic. I also may have been the guy who let you borrow my setup, but my name isn't Alex haha. Either way, it's always nice to help each other out when we can. I hooked up both my bluefin on the retrieve. Fish were between 180 and 320 feet deep. First fish I hooked in the eyeball with a 250g shimano flat fall with a 13/0 VMC 7264 hook re rigged with 500lb kevlar assist cord tied directly to a the solid ring (the jig itself is attached by split ring). After I let *I assume this gentleman* borrow my setup, the crew gave me their setup with the worn out daiwa SK with 0 paint on it. Got smashed on the retrieve on my first drop. After that, I was done fishing and just enjoyed watching everyone else hook up and land fish. Here are some of my pictures.

    My fish were mainly on the sink about 200 - 250 feet deep. Casting down swell, then drifting towards the sinking lure helped, as my bites were coming right as the lure came straight up and down. As soon as it would stop sinking, just wind like hell and keep winding until line was being ripped off the reel. No need to set back.

    Crazy awesome trip! After the past few years, I feel like these fish have found a new home in SoCal. Just need to keep our over-seas neighbors and there nets out of our backyard now.

    Ps- I’d be happy with that cute little yellowtail in the foreground.

    Congratulations to all!!! The old Glory also caught flatfall limits about a month ago when this bite first started. How long was the fight on the cow that was caught?

    It was around a 1 hour and 20 minutes give or take 10 minutes. What’s crazy is that he caught with 60lb line.

    Sorry about getting your name wrong but I do remember what a great person you are. I was impressed by how you have a high paying Job, and and leaving that to join the military to fly helicopters. I remember that you leave in August the day before your birthday for a 2 year flight school in Alabama. I should have still remembered your name, so for now on I will say,” I stood by the railing of the boat knowing I did not have the right gear when out of the dark comes one of the anglers , and hands me his rod and reel and says you go get yourself one of those bluefin. I stop for one second and I look back and said who do I thank for this, and all he says, “ I’m Ron Burgundy you stay classy.”
    Thank you again for the set up and thank you for your service.

    These reports are making for a LONG spring up here in rainsville. ;-)

    Early July for us at best, maybe longer due to the shit winter.

    It’s amazing you are hooking fish at that depth. Here in Wicked Tuna country we are seldom in more than 220’, and fish no deeper than half that. Would not want to have to work those slobs up from that depth, dead boat no less. Ouch!

    Well it ranges from ~2500' to 5000' deep where they are fishing, so if you ask the tuna they would probably say that they are pretty shallow :D
