Default MBGFC Labor Day report. "ZBREEZE"

I havent posted in a while but had to get the Labor day report out there!

I had the opportunity to fish with some great people and friends on the ZBREEZE in the MBGFC Labor Day tournament and we had a great time as always Mobile Big Game did a fantastic job with everything. Abig thanks to them and a huge thanks out to Dr. Greg and Matt Zeiman for having me on their boat this time around, super group of people to have the opportunity to fish with.

We left out friday night around midnight and headed S/SE and we woke up in some very nice looking water and had a knock down at 6:05 AM on the dot, but it only lasted about 5 seconds. We were hopefull with the water conditions and that knock down right off the bat, however after that there was no action for several hours. So, we picked up and put some high speeds out and headed west. We arrived at Marlin after transfering 150 gallons off the bow and made a few passes with no luck, and then worked our way to Horn Mountain where there were several boats working and we managed a couple little BF and one small Dolphin. We fished there untill dark and then it was on!
All the lines were cleared and up, one line left out the center rigger. It was being reeled in and 50 yards behind the boat.... BAM !!! Something crushed it, there was a aluminium cedar plug on the end and it was dark so we did not see it at first. But judging the actions of the fish we assumed it was a yellowfin. After a good 45 minute fight, she was boat side and the gaff went in and she was on the deck and in the box! Everyone was excited, great feeling afer a long day with nothing to really show for it. Nice YF in the box!! After some steaks and a few drinks we got soem shut eye. (A LITTLE ROUGH)
We worked our way ove to NAKIKA and the current was insane! so we motored back over to HORN MOUNTAIN to be there at first light.
We fished there for a whiel with no luck and deceided to work our way back N/NE.

Trolling all the way to the bottom end of the elbow with no luck we see a good number of boats working the elbow and we soon cross over into some NICE BLUE WATER. Spread goes out (big thanks to my friend Capt. ALEX Pinney for all of his advise and direction of getting my lures right), im still putting the starbord side flat line out and BAM !!!! The port side flat gets crushed!!! Bumping a 80W with 28LBS of drag, run to look and there is only about 100 yards or so left on the spool (not 100% sure but that is my guess). Anyway, never saw a fish, only a small splash, this thing is going hard ! We clear the lines and begin to back down slowly and the fish stays on for a good 10 minutes and then the line goes slack and we bring up a perfectly intact lure, with little chafing on the leader! Big let down but still exciting! Have no clue what was on the other end, thinking a decent size Blue but again we never saw a thing, just alot of line leaving and drag screaming. So we cary on with one more billfish coming uop in the baits but nothing there he was interested in. So around 4:30 PM we decide to head North!
We were number 6 to weight in and our Tuna weighed in at 106.7 LBS and was good enough to end up in 3rd place! We were all very excited and pleased with where we ended up.
Big thanks to MBGFC for a great tournament..!

All in all it was a great trip with great friends and beautiful WATER!
Cant wait to get out there and do it again next year!

Here are a few pics, i will post more soon.

Thank you all for reading !
