    We ran 3 trips over the last weekend...
    all pretty much similar results with a really strong tuna bite... adding in wahoo a couple of days over 60lbs... Sunday we started out for wahoo since Andy had pick up 2 nice ones hours prior..., but bailed quickly seeing tuna marks on the sounder. Set up and 1st drift we got into some nice black fin, drift after drift hooking up with singles, doubles, and a triple with yellow fin mixed in here and there... once the guys got the hang of it, it was on... then small spanish mackerel starting busting running from something... moments later the 50 wide dumps 1/2 of the spool... 45 minutes later pull the hook... set up again and keep catching medium size tuna... have another reel dump, do an hour fight and the thing that everyone hates when it happens - happens... only feet from getting a gaff shot on a buffalo size yellow fin the hook pulls... not sure what happened other than he won that one... everyone was wore out - it was somber... but that's fishing... we stopped the black fin madness at 12 and brought back 6 yellowfin tuna and amber jack... great trip and lots of fun.
