Default Bow Down tuna trip

We left Daybreak Saturday around noon and headed for the Deepwater Nautilus. When we got there the water was cobalt blue and bait everwhere. We were fired up and put out some ballyhoos and some plastics. After a couple hours of trolling and no action (we did see a bill on a fish that was sunning but couldnt tell what it was) we decide to start live baiting. We live baited until dark with no luck but we had small tunas bust around us. So about 845pm we decide to move to a different side of the rig and get the steaks going on the grill. And for the next few hours we caught 4 bigeye tunas and 3 YF. We tried for a little bit the next morning but the water had changed to dirty green overnight and the fish box was full and we were getting low on ice. So at 7am we decide to work our way north to Horn Mountain and pull some baits. After a couple hours and no action we cleared the deck and headed home. We got back to Day Break at 1130pm and weighed the fish. Bigeys were 96,94,86,38 and YF were 84,74,64. We cleaned fish until 3pm thanks to Jake at DB for letting us borrow a couple of sharper knives or we would have been there a lot longer.

We were at that rig last weekend and there were Big Eye all over it. Nice work. We caught all of ours on Butterfly Jigs at about 400 ft.

Great job. We were there Friday night and watched our friends in the boat next to us catch the new AL state record Bigeye.
