It ROCKED right up until mother nature blew. We really wanted to hit those fish on tourney day as they were set up perfectly for a big kill.

Great report as always - hopefully the dream team can get together to put a hurt on them; really wanted to see what we could have accomplished. 100 fish in a day is not out of the question with the team you assembled and the mood the longfins were in.

Fresh POKE hit the spot as well-

Tommy, Thanks a million! That was a trip of a lifetime. My first tuna killing was a complete blast. You really know how to spoil your guests.

I want to give a big "shout out" to the crew. They were amazing. Thanks guys . And thanks to Bo as well. The Guadalupe is definitely a Tuna Killin Machine. Can't wait to do it again someday.

SWEET! I am happy that you finally got into them thick, nice report and great photos! Too bad Mother Nature took charge and the scouting didn't allow you to collect dividends.

I have got to find the time to get out there and slay the albies, man, killer report!

You know how we operate. I'm surgical with the Lupe and will need to be stepping up, soon!

She's blowin, but it must be nice to get a couple days off. You've been doing work all summer, Mark. I bet the Albies are glad you're not on the water!
