Nov 2-3 2015 Tuna over nighter

Finally Mark and his buddies got the weather window that we needed to take the ride off shore. He has been cancelled since early  September,weather and scheduling conflicts. Now we have flat calm seas and expectations are sky high. Setting up on a good temp break, we had what we needed. Mammels, bait and good water, now we neded the tunas. Mahi in the slick once it got dark, provided us withsome action and great eating. The first tuna hooked broke off under the boat, but got the blood flowing. Then it was the usual middle of the night dead time. A small swordfish was hooked and released around 1 am.  By 3, the guys were all heavy eyed, as the fishing continued to be very slow. At 3:10 it happened! A few tuna showed in the slick and the screen came alive and it was game on for 2 1/2 hours. Mark and his guys did a great job hooking and landing 15 nice yft! A beautiful sunrise started the day and once the sun got high, the big yellowfins turned on. They added 4 more nice fish to the box upto 85lbs!! A great trip that almost never was.photo[1]
