Wanted to send you a report from our fishing trip on Friday and Saturday. We combined the trips to help ensure the guys caught some big fish. They really wanted tuna and it wouldn’t have been possible on the shorter trips.
We had another great group of guys from the railroad industry to take fishing on December 3rd and 4th. The weather was perfect for our fishing trip. The seas were calm and the sun was shining. While on the way to fish for tunas, we got to see three humpback whales. The guys got plenty of pictures and some videos. The second whale actually turned and swam towards us before diving down about 100 feet from the boat. We hoped this was going to be a good omen, as these were definitely rare sightings around he
Around 4 pm we started trolling lures and baits. Within 20 minutes two yellowfin tunas were hooked up and weighed around 65 pounds. Once it got dark, we began jigging and chunking for tunas. Over the next 6 hours, the guys managed to catch eleven more yellowfin and over thirty blackfin tunas. The largest yellowfin was in the 80 pound class. In addition to the tunas, we caught more barracudas than we wanted. There was definitely not a shortage of action once the fishing started. All the boxes were full of fish and it was time to head home.
We look forward to taking these guys again for another great trip. Next time we will try to work on their goal of catching their first sharks and swordfish. This trip they all got to catch their first yellowfin tunas. It is so exciting to help people catch fish that they have never caught before.
Thank you again for another great group to take fishing. We look forward to more trips like this. Capt Mike.
