lookin
Left Wednesday night bob taft, Julio ,Scotty and a young deck hand my bad I’m terrible with names but all killer deckhands and fishermen
Thursday we start on the ridge anchored up start the morning off with some smaller grade BF 2 larger models mixed in with quality yellowtail 20-30 lb models
Around 3 we take off to chase the bigger fish can’t get the fish to stick around till around 8 pm then we start hooking big BF on the flat fall and a couple on.sinkered bait 2-6 fish hanging all night till 1am it was epic while fighting my fish I was watching Bob Taft hook and hand at least 8 or more big tuna to guys He is a beast
He did the same in the mornings with the yellowtail and smaller tuna because of him and billy no one went empty handed and everyone on the boat killed it
Couldn’t ask for a better crew they aren’t there to just do a job they love what they do and it shows
got two personal bests a 168 lb BF and a 110 lber. A load of yellows and limited on BF and I’m a selfish man I hooked and landed all my fish 😛 Btw the ladies on the boat a shout out you killed it karrie and the cook showing how it’s done

Anyway epic trip and can’t say enough about the owner and crew of the
TOP GUN 80.

Bob is an amazing captain! I have nothing but good things to say about him and Julio. I went on a 2.5 day on the 80 in early September and we got all you could want dorado and some decent numbers of Big to school sized tuna. As for the kid deck hand I still have nightmares of him gaffing my line instead of the 90-100lb(est) tuna that I had on 30# it happens no hard feelings against him.
