Default Tuna Trip

With all this talk and post about offshore fishing, i thought me and my buddy Zac should give it a try. Zac just had major arm surgery so all he had to do was drive the boat, watch and laugh at us fools. So we loaded his boat "Peacemaker" with family and friends and headed out from Destin. Made bait around the pass with hard tails, herring, speedos, and cigar minnows and headed SW. Saw 4 different pods of whales on the way out. What a sight and experience just to see and get close to those things. Got to our first stop about 3 in the afternoon. Got 9 yellowfins before dark but the bite died so we moved to a drill ship not far away. The high light of the trip was a nice yellowfin on a popper hooked in the side, right in the middle of the body. Talk about a night mare. 3 hour and 5 minute fight. It whipped everyone on the boat multiple times. The blackfins were so think we could not fish. Some really big ones too. Some pushing 20 pounds. They were eating hand size hardtails. We caught and released a bunch of those decided to call it a night. We got up at daylight to get 3 more yellowfins and head to the barn about 7:30 am. Final tally was 15 yellowfins and could have sunk the boat in blackfins. I don't have any pictures but Zac is going to post a video today. I had an absolute blast. Mr Gibbs got to catch his first yellowfin and I got to be part of it. Russ stood true to his word and fished hard and also did a great job with the video. Zac being the great person he is gave away so much tuna at the dock I bet he fed half of Destin. My hats off to you buddy. I know the Lord sees all the good you do. You are truely blessed.
Good luck out there everyone. Be safe, tight lines and God Bless you all.
