Epic Tuna Action

Today the ocean was alive with bluefins AND yellowfins!

My group was strictly jigging or popping today, so getting out the trolling rods and getting whammed by the yellowfins wasn’t even an option. From the time we started fishing this morning till when we quit this afternoon, there were bluefins and yellowfins busting the surface. Most of the bluefins were a little more than most people would want to tangle with on jigging rods. We had twelve bites, hooked ten, caught two and broke off eight. We did catch one that was barely small enough to keep, a 200 pound, 72 incher, but the one we released was closer to 90 inches and 400 pounds. You had to be there to appreciate all the action, but trust me, it was happening!
