Default MSviking at the rigs 12/8

My oldest daughter is home from school and wanted to tuna fish, so I put together a crew of myself, my daughter Jamie, Mia a friend of Jamie's from school, my brother and his son, my sister and her son as well as Woody.

Left out mid day and ran to the Marlin rig, made a few laps, but things looked dead so we hopped over to Ram. Ram looked even more lifeless so we made the call to run to Nakika and the adjacent Drill Ship 3. At dusk we caught blackfin on every drop, kept a few to chunk with. The tuna bite was hot as we caught over 10, keeping 7, releasing multiple 80# plus YF once we had enough to eat. Smallest was maybe 70lbs with most around 90 or so with two over 125 #. Sportsman's did not have a scale so we could not weigh them, one of the average ones weighed 92 lbs on my 100 lb scale.

Caught the tuna on standup Tiagra 16s which was a blast. My sister's tuna took almost an hour and was her personal best as well as a boat record for Jacquelyn.

By midnight we were whooped so we deployed the sea anchor and crashed till dawn. Released a few more on the troll then called it a day. Back at Sportsman's by noon.

Great two days on the water!

Awesome weather

We even let Woody catch a few


We are blessed here in the Norther Gulf with a fantastic year round fishery!

Well done Robert. I wish i could have pulled away and made a run, the weather looked great.

We're they all caught on chunks? Or did you find some live bait?
