Tuna booked
« on: July 11, 2019, 08:13:25 AM »
Well, I had so much fun with all rivers charters for salmon and rockfish that I just booked a tuna trip for a buddy and myself for August 1st.  Let's hope the tuna show up by then.  Been wanting to do this for a few years now and finally decided it's time! 
Right wing shooter, I aim for the left!!!

Nowhere in your incoherent rambling did you come close to what can be considered a rational thought. Everyone is now dumber having heard it. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul.

Good call, assuming the boat your on finds the fish it will likely be the funnest fishing you have ever done. Those fish are crazy powerful for there size.

Hopefully they show up by then, they are still a long ways out. Definitely a fun day if you get into them.

What do those average in size?
The ones in your pic look pretty hefty!

BE WARNED!!!! It will sink its claws in you and you will be a tuna hoe for life. We did 75 fish my first trip out and the next year I had a custom live bait rod and all the gear to go with it. It can be a very intense experience depending what type of fishing your doing. Trolling them up can get kinda boring but running and gunning watching for birds and jumpers gets a little crazy.
