It's been a good week fishing wise for tuna. Went back out with Lloyd and his brother in law and nephew. A slower day but we hooked up twice and eventually landed the second one. Lloyds a great fisherman....Wish I could say the same for the bro in law and nephew! Always a pleasure Lloyd..;-)
Next day we went east of chatham with Tyler and the boys.....This is a yearly event and we went 4 for 4 on large butterballs. Just truly beautiful fish. We stayed way clear of the fleet and it paid off well.
Yesterday I had John Fletcher onboard and we went 0 for 2 up north on light tackle....We hooked up early and John fought the fish and good hour and twenty plus minutes before he chaffed us off on 60lb leader. We got a look at him several times and he appeared to be mid 60 inch class. We hooked up again and could not move this fish at all....After 15 minutes he shook the hook. We called it early due to the fact I was coming down under the weather and had to take today off as well to deal with being sick....*uugh*....
Hopefully back at it 2morrow!
