Out with a crew of six who decided to enter the OC Tuna Tournament even though they only have one day to fish. Pushed through heavy seas to arrive at the tuna grounds shortly after 7 am. Within five minutes we have a blue marlin tracking one of our spreader bars. The bar is reeled in and that darn marlin pops up and crushes our long rigger. After a blistering run the fish goes deep creating a big belly in the line that we’re not aware of until its too late and the braid rubs something on the boat and parts. Our next two bites are two white marlin which we’re able to get the baits away from before the get the hook. Next bite is a small mahi and he goes in the box. Finally we get the right bite and Dave puts a 65# yellowfin in the box. A little while later we get jumped by the yellowfin again and three rods go down. Sometime during the fight two of the fish are lost but we’re able to put one more respectable fish in the box. By noon the seas have built to a point that I decide we need to go especially after a wave breaks into the cockpit. Back in OC the crew is ecstatic to find out that they’ve won nearly $1700 in the daily calcutta for heaviest stringer for boats 35′ and under. As of this posting Fin Chaser is tied for second place for heaviest fish and first place for stringer weight for boats 35′ and under.
