Good Afternoon Anglers,
Last night up to the north west last night in search of bluefin tuna. Early in the morning we spotted a school of fish puddling on the surface.
We initially assumed it was bluefin but once we got a little closer, we were very pleasantly surprised to see it was large yellowfin tuna. Once we got on the school we had a few bites right away. We lost quite a few fish due to light line, but once we got our anglers fishing the 40 pound we started bringing them over the rail. These are big fish,Megan landed a 74 pounder! We are still on the same drift and picking away with the fly line baits and the kite.

Good evening anglers,
After finishing our long drift for yellowfin tuna this morning, we went on the hunt. We were seeing a lot of large “foamers” of bluefin but they would not cooperate, so we made a move. As evening approached we found the water edge we wanted to be on and found a very large school of big bluefin just beneath the surface. We hooked a big one right away, and as it got dark we put the sinker rigs and flat falls to work. The school stayed with us for a few hours, and we were able to land some very nice fish.
We had an amazing trip with a great group. We are on our way home and will be at the dock in the morning.
