Left Tuesday morning with a half load of 14 people. I was immediately impressed by the helpfulness and friendliness of the crew during the onload. Limited tackle storage but more than enough for us. Plenty of rod storage. Boat was very clean and bunks were large with fresh pillow cases and blankets (I should have taken a pic of the bunk room but didn't). Picked up Bait and headed out towards the 425? Ish. Tuna everywhere but most with lock jaw. One 35lb BFT hooked and landed on bait and two YFT hooked on poppers (one landed). That was it for day one, basically a tuna watching trip. At night we move to a different area that didn't pan out so back to the area from the Tuesday. After 3 Bluefin trips this year I finally got bit Wednesday evening fishing live Bait on 40lb. It had been so long since I've even had a bite that I was like "holly shit, I'm actually bit", the fish pealed 200 yards of line off at 15lbs of drag, paused, and then kept going. While talking with the deckhand we both thought I needed to go past strike on my reel. Finally, with about 75yds of line left the fish finally stopped and turned. I quickly gained about half my line back but the fight continued for an hour and ten minutes at 20lbs of drag (tested when I got home). About 45 minutes into the fight my left arm was shot and I could no longer keep a good bend in the rod with my arm at that drag level. I decided to kneel and use the rod like a Rail Rod to keep pressure on the fish. Long story short, got the fish, an 82lb BFT and it fought well beyond its weight class, I've caught larger but none fought harder. The rod held up beyond what I thought it was capable of. Even the deckhands and the Captain couldn't believe how squirrelly this fish was, it did figure 8's at the boat and kept changing directions. I couldn't have got this crazy fish without the help of the crew. I'm serious when I say that, Scotty took the rod from me (yes took, I never give it up) and fought the fish while straddling the anchor (I couldn't have done that). Mike the cook came out to help gaff the fish. Truely top notch crew. The crew was Long Range quality. The Captain was first rate. The cleanliness was impressive. My only issue was the cost of food, but this seems like a fleet wide issue. I will be looking at the Tomahawk for future trips.
