Trip 21 8/21-8/24/16 3-Day Tuna

trip 21-16

Good weather, great group, and sore muscles. We got a good biting school
one morning, the catching was slow the day before–guys were
using 30-lb and lots of heartbreak and or epic battles.
We did land several nice fish 50 -80 lb class both Yellowfin & Bluefin–some
larger ones escaped.

The way to go on these fish is 50- & 40-lb tackle, preferably 2 speeds.
My outfit of choice for this is a Penn Fathom 2 speed 25, 30, 40 or
equivalent reel, with a matching 7 – 7.5 foot rod.

Hope this continues, these fish are awesome,
the Vagabond Crew

Craig Schoening took 1st place with a 78-lb BFT, Terrance Herman came in 2nd with a 77-lb, YFT, Tom Sakurai in 3rd
