Default Fishing with Capt Delynn

Iíve been fishing with Delynn for about 7 yrs now. We have always had great trips and most times we have epic trips. My boys have caught lots of first as in first grouper weighed in at 48lbs, weíve caught coolers full of giant mingos, fire trucks, gags, scamps, almaco jacks and stud red snapper. Well our most recent trip on July 6th topped the cake. We had caught our limit of great snapper, several Almacos and were working on some grouper. The bite was slow so we decided to reel up to changes spots. Well...about half way my friend Landon Coker and the Penn 4/0 gets slammed down to the gunnel. The fiberglass half hitch boat rod was bent over like a pool noodle. At first we thought big shark but as the fight went on it became apparent it was not a shark. The fish made three really big runs and almost spooled the reel once. Twice we had it to the top shot. But it wouldnít give up. Delynn worked is butt off hand lining the fish while I worked the boat. Iím confident that we wouldnít have landed the fish without him. He hand lined the fish for the last 30-40 minutes until my youngest son stuck the gaff in it. The fish that we fought and landed was a 154.6 lb yellowfin tuna. Iím definitely glad that we had the twin(hands) Delynn drag system on board. He had blisters on both hands when it was all said and done. Hereís another kicker...it was Landonís first trip offshore. I guess there might some truth to beginners luck. I posted a video link that has some of the pictures from through out the years. Itís not the best, but paints a picture of fishing with my friend Delynn Sigler

Great pics Joe! I have him booked for Monday but I have a feeling the trip won't be going! lol! He is such a great guy to fish with and I always learn so much every time. Guys, do yourselves a favor and at least once in your life book a trip with Captain Delynn.

What does everyone do when they catch these huge amounts of fish? I vacuum seal some fish for keeping, but with this much fish it would fill a huge chest freezer. Just curious cause I’ve never caught that much fish before, but unless I could sell it l wouldn’t want to keep that much????
Many times I’ve had buddies throwing away frozen fish from who knows when to make room for more frozen fish.

Where I come from we tend to eat it...most people go on trips with their fishing buddies so the meat gets split up equally at the end. I've gone out with Capt. Delynn a few times and slayed every time...had over 400 lbs of fish on the deck easy every time, this last time was just a couple days before thos guys yellowfin was caught...all my meat from that trip is gone

Believe me it all gets eaten. It was split six ways and some given away. I have a big family and we eat a lot of fish.
