Default Angry Bird Fishing Charters 12-8 Rig trip

After watching the weather, April and I got a chance to go after some tuna, and maybe her first Billfish. We headed out of Pcola Saturday afternoon and made it to Petronius just before dark. It was beautiful and we had high hope of bagging so fish. Talked to the Reel Mojo and started catching Blackfins. This was April's first time at the rigs and catching any type of Tuna. After some quick pointers, she started wearing them out. We had numerous double hook ups, and it was a blast! A few fish got munched by sharks, but the really didn't bother us. Marked some big fish down way deep so not much happening with Yft there.

With a box full of Bft and a worn out wife, cruised over to Marlin. Not as much activity there but I marked some bigger fish around 100' or so and dropped and chunk of Bft down and it got nailed! Fish on! After a normal tuna battle, I had the fish up to within ten feet of the boat, and the hook pulled. I have no clue how or why, but lost a 100 pound Yft! I fished the for a few more hours with zero luck and headed over to Beercan. Nothing happening there, so I eased back to Petronius hoping to catch a morning bite. Didn't happen though, so we pulled plastics down through the steps and decided to head in early. 25 big Bft in the box so we at least had some food!

I think I saw you out there early Sunday morning. I was on the Cape Horn with a tower that arrived at the Petronius just before daylight and left soon after. Glad you got them.

Does the Tuna bite typically stay good through Christmas/New Years?

Sorry to hear about your YFT, but it sounds like you still had a great time. I'm not sure how we missed seeing you SAT night. We were drifting between the Marlin and beercan.
