Default Last weekend out of Orange Beach (big tuna)

Fished out of Orange Beach Friday night. Tuna bite has been virtually nonexistent for me on most of the Mississippi Canyon rigs before 4 am, so talked the guys into doing a couple hours of swording over by the steps before heading further offshore. Nothin doin on the swordies, but started chipping away at the tunas a few miles south of there. Here is a pic of the largest one. Bite wasn't wide open but I'd rather have a couple good ones than 10 60-80 pound schoolies, anyway. Likely the fish of a lifetime for the gentleman's first yellowfin Back to enjoy football and cocktails by lunch.

Nice fish, nice work capt.. What did he eat?

what did he weigh in at - im guessing between 110-135 but it looks skinny and like a summer tuna but still an awesome catch all the way around
