Default MSyellowfin rig trip 8/20

Made a day trip to the rigs Saturday with Capt Woody and ensign Herb (aka superchicken). Based on Hilton's decided to start at Horn Mt. Seas were pancake flat and arrived at Horn around 3AM to find half dozen boats there. We backed off and napped till daybreak. Much to my surprise most of the boats had left, we live baited and chunked. Caught two nice tuna. The water was a nice blue. Current was dead. Around noon ran to Nakika which was in green water. Ran to Ram which was in green water. There was bait and tuna on the surface but we could not intice them to eat our bait or chunk. Still had a good trip. Great day to be offshore.


Came across a huge whale that we thought was dead only to be freaked out when it woke up boatside! Unfortunately none of us had our cameras ready, closest I have ever come to a whale out there!

I made a some pretty cool video with the new GoPro which I will post once I edit it down.

ensign Herb's tuna



MSyellowfin's tuna which was just a tad larger than Herb's



Capt Woody's tuna, it takes a real expert to catch them this size! skill baby!



Triple tail I snagged off a floating log along with a few dolphin



Dolphins bowriding the Yellowfin



I took some cool videos with the GoPro of tuna underwater etc.... I will post once I have a chance to edit it down to size.


Great day on the water, blessed to be able to experience it!

Rob, you always post the best pics of the action. I like the small bite sized yellowfin pup. It gives me inspiration for a lure once I find some time to pour again. Thanks for sharing.
