35 bluefin 8 yellowfin. Long “plunker” drifts were the name of the game today. A rubber banded 4-6oz sinker on 40-60lb line got most of our bites.
Wow! What a day. 2015! We started it off early on anchor. The sun wasn't even up yet and we were catching tuna and wahoo. For about an hour there on anchor we were gettinum. We had about 30 of those 25-30+ pound tuna and almost 20 wahoo before an hour. Things slowed so we pulled anchor and got nasty. We had a couple other bingers for wahoo for about 10 each time, and of course we would catch that big tuna during those drifts. After that though, us and the 3 other boats that were here pretty much had the wahoo caught for the day. There was a few left to be had but we mostly caught that tuna up to perhaps 40 pounds the rest of the day. Not wide open. We're not "fixed up". Just steady for most of the day. Before dark we started "the troll of shame". I've never done that the second day of the trip. We got 2 passengers out of there and still have 2 or 3 left who haven't caught a wahoo yet. Oh they had there chances. Some of those guys on that team lost 4 or 5 skin today. But that's wahoo fishing. Sometimes you eat the bar, and sometimes the bar eats you.
We're going to try this again in the morning. I would love to get 40 or 50 more tuna and a couple more handfuls of wahoo. That would be epic. After the morning hit we're going to make a run and try for some yellows in the afternoon.
