Hit the inlet at the same time as what seemed like every other boat in the free world. After a 54 mile run the spread is set. Ten minutes later a bigeye tuna rolls on our long rigger but doesn’t find the hook. A couple seconds later he explodes on the bait and the drag screams until the crimp at the hook fails. The next two hours provide ample yellowfin opportunities but the guys just aren’t ready for just how hard these buggers can pull and several are lost after battling each fish for a few minutes. The next couple hours are fairly slow with only the occasional skipjack and a 10 lb. mahi. With less than fifteen minutes left in the day a spreader bar gets crushed by a 25 lb. yellowfin. The fight is perfect and the guys have some fresh tuna for the grill.
