Left yesterday at around 4 in the afternoon. Full moon so we were able to run 30kts to the rigs the whole way. Chunked till our hands froze off with one one yellow about 70-80 pounds. Woke up and started trolling. Picked up a wahoo at around noon and around 115 the big girl came up! Fish hit the right short and started haulin! Took most the spool off the 50. Looked back and noticed her thrashing way way behind the boat and we could see she had some shoulders. Got her to the boat in about 45 minutes our wireman took one wrap on herand she didnt like that one bit! She was still really really green and the swivel got caught up and broke her off. We estimated her at 550- 600 pounds. Fish was caught at the steps in 500ft. of water.

Bite sucked at the rigs. Did see one thing I found to be rather neat. Around 1 this morning, a small school of juvinile sailfish came up in the lights. Me and Jeremy got a good look at the little fellers, (12" or so). Had thier little sails up andthier fins were lit up too_One other thing, we spent most of the 45 minute fight backing down chasing this fish...

Damn, I forgot how sexy I am. Even though I'm extremely photogenic, those pictures just seem to make me look better than usual!:moon





Congrats, Trip! Don't forget to turn in a catch card on the tuna from yesterday. 3rd place adds to the prize.
