    Been mia for a minute. Crazy month of work, travels, remodel, and my sons 1st b day. #adulting as they call it. Been doing the lobster thing with great results. I'll post those reports separate. First trip out in a while and it was another tuna trip to remember. Tried to call others on radio but some were calling bs. Oh well. WFO on larger grade 40-60 pounds. Wouldn't touch anything heavier than 30. Lost a bunch and boat fish hold could only fit 10 of them. With only 3 guys, we had more than we can handle. Released a few and called it a day early around noon. Tried for the bluefin but never made it to the area. Near Clemente. Birds and dolphins. All sardine fish. Power pro spectra to 3 foot seguar premier 30lb Fluoro to 2/0 ringed circle hooks. Go get em guys!
    Another epic trip.

    Some more tips: Stay away from the crowd. Look for life signs such as birds and dolphins. First hook up was around 8 am on the very first school of dolphin that I found in the distance. Take your time to find a hot bait. an extra 30 seconds looking for the right bait is better than 2-5 minutes of soaking a non active one. Other reports tell that keep finding a school thats willing to bite however for us, every school we found was holding. No boats in sight besides one. Water temp 68….. hope that helps.

    Sharing a few photos from my personal life as I feel this forum has been like a second family to me.

    And to svue- always a pleasure fishing with you. #shakeandbake

    Great job again! You are blessed and having a great year!! Looks like easy end, or was front or backside? Was it off the paddy, sonar, birds or sight? Any help would be much appreciated. Going Sat and I'm still 0 for the freakin year!! Thanks!

    5ps. proper planning prevents poor performance. Im merely just taking what I learned in fitness and life and finally applying it towards fishing. Although the hobbies are different, the excellent results remain to be the same. The system works :)
