Default Late Report 8/19-20 Tuna Hunting

Left billy goat hole friday evening bout 4:30 headed to the Deepwater Nautilus in search of tuna, made a brief stop to fill the livewell with 6" hardtails. Upon arrival we drop down and bam fish on after a gruesome 2 hour fight first fish on deck 106lbs bigeye the fish were rather deep. We saw some other PFF guys out there. This trip was a friggin blast, one for the books: slick water, plenty of fish and cold ones but unfortunately the hardtails suffered severe losses!

We continued this assault for 10 hours fighting fish the whole time in some, shape, form or fashion. We threw in the towel for lack a fishbox space the 700qt was maxed out!

We ended the trip with 1 yft, 6 bigeye tuna ranging from 106 to 88lbs except for the little fella and seemingly the bigeye fight a lil harder and yft but I don't know they all fight pretty darn hard.

Some say bigeye is close to Bluefin. We pulled some off that rig 2 weeks ago and they taste mighty good. I think a little better than YFT.

If the bigeye did indeed weigh 106 lbs and if you left BGH then you probably ate the AL state record. I was at DW Nautilus Friday night and watched "Queen Callie" catch the new state record at 102.4 lbs. It was certified Sunday morning.
