Default Fishing on the Reel Hard 5-21-2016

Left out around noon Saturday from grand lagoon and headed toward the rigs. Choppy ride out but arrived about 4:30. Managed two 40 inch AJ and a couple of shorts. Trolled tight before dark with no luck other than a couple of cudas when we got too close to the rigs. Hit the petronious and Marlin up and they were the deadest I've ever seen. Wasn't even marking fish. You guys most have known that already cause there weren't any boats out there on a full moon Saturday night.....but I didn't get the memo. Managed to hook up a couple of bft deep but sharks got them. Dropped the outriggers before daylight and put out a seven line spread and started trolling east to the elbow just like the week before. Hooked a nice tuna(or at least that was the consensus of what we thought it was) right after sunrise that took 300 yds of line on his first run. Ended up diving deep and pulling the hook 25 minutes later. Started trolling agin and caught a small tuna. Hooked another that pulled the hook then had a skunk knock down that neither one hooked up. Know that was tuna because we saw one when it came to the top. Lines in At 11am and back at grand lagoon yacht club at 2 after topping off with fuel to be ready to go again.

Ps- all the hits trolling were in pink and white islanders with ballyhoo. The young fellow pictured got is first tuna and and the story of the one that got away.

Default Wear out the boat!

Dang; you are going to wear out the boat fishing that much! I am jealous as I have had too many other things going on to get out myself.
