Default First Yellowfin

Actually it is my second one. I caught the first one a couple of hours earlier and it weight around 30lbs. This big boy hit at daybreak and I had been chunking for about five minutes when he took the bait. Two hours and fifteen minutes later the 158lb fish was in the boat and I was exhausted to say the least. Caught some really nice blackfin and red snapper with one red grouper that had been surviving without a tail. Sorry for the lack of pictures, I blame the crew,
