Default Momma's First Tuna, 7/2/2016

Morning all,
Was supposed to head out Friday but had a change of heart, the boat and crew wasn't quite ready. Thank God I did, rainy and nasty out.

Got an early start on Saturday, launched right at 5:30 and out the pass by 6:30, had to stop and raid my buddies bait pin! Full crew, my wife and daughter, Jan, Kim and of course ME. Stopped at the bridge rubble for hardtails and headed SE for grouper or whatever was biting.
Took us around 3 hours to get to our spot, lots of life on the way out. Bait balls, bonita, turtles, grass beds and flyers. We stopped several times, picked off some AJ's(released) and a few bonita (large)!
Anyway, we set the drift and started our drops one after another. Picked off some scamp, more AJs, and a nice tuna. After donating a lot of gear, sweat and tears to the rocks, we decided to troll our way north.
Got our first wahoo on the Ms Ruth. Almost boated a second until flipper jetted out of nowhere and destroyed him!
Anyway, momma has been beating me up over tuna and she finally got one!
Great day on the water with friends and family. Enjoy the pics and video!

Great report!!! Not being nosey, but we went 60 miles offshore out of Perdido Pass Friday, July 2. Water was extremely dirty. Did you find any clean/blue water and if so, how far out was it? Thanks!!!
