tuna Short but Sweet Trip Apr 26-27 19

As always, I was watching the weather for a window and about a week ago saw that a Sat-Sun trip looked really good. As the week progressed it went from 5-10 to 10-15kt winds and from less than 2s, to 2-3s. Friday morning was supposed to be 2-4s and 15kt winds from the North. Checked and at 7am it was only 4kts. Hmmmm…

Had an appointment until 11am but got to thinking that the front wasn’t as strong as they thought and that if so, Sunday winds might get even stronger? Called Shane, Matt, and Andy and told them the situation and maybe we should scramble and get out later this afternoon. Amazing enough, everyone was able to do that so off we went, leaving Bridge Bait at 4 pm.

Saw the best weed line I’ve seen in years and stopped to check for some mahi – no one home yet. Noticed that my port engine had stalled? Long story short, we trouble shot it and got going after about an hour delay, arriving at the Floater about 9pm.

We started fishing and after about a half hour, figured out the drift and where the fish were and blackfin started wearing us out. And did so all night! Andy got the first yft, about a 35 inch fish. We kept at it and I think Matt got hooked up next. He fought a nice ~100#er to the boat and with a double gaff we got her in the boat. I think I was next to hook up and fought a ~90# to the boat but she screamed line when she saw us and my leader broke (looked like the solid ring may have had a burr and the line got cut there?).

We kept at it and I get another nice strike and we get a 80#er in the boat. Matt gets the next yft strike and he fights a 90#er to the boat and another double gaff and she is in the fish box. In between the yft bites, did I mention the bft were wearing us out!

Andy and I both hook up and I maneuver to stay out of his way. Turned out to be a good thing because mine comes unbuttoned (leader cut by something?) And he continues to fight his on and on and on… Passes to me and I fight her a good 20 minutes, pass to Matt… We fought that fish for about an hour and 20 minutes. I would fight to get 2-3 feet of line at a time and then she would slowly just jerk line out for 20 feet with an occasional wild @ss run now and then to demoralize us. We had her within 3 feet of surface at least 5 times only to have jerk or rip line to humiliate us! We finally get her close enough to gaff and do so! Turns out she was hooked in the eve socket area so her gills were free for oxygen flow and we had NO leverage to turn her head. Wore out and wanting to make sure we had no further engine troubles we slow boated for 3 hours on one engine and then fired up the other and made it home without further incident.

Shorter but successful trip. Tight lines all and be safe out there. Oh yea, Halcos were the ticket for us.

It was a great trip. Glad the port motor cooperated with us to get us home.
