Open Boat Mudhole Trip-Big Thresher

Had Newcomers to the boat Mike, Corey and Gary.
Original plan was to hit the canyon for a day trip
But didn't like afternoon forecast. Stayed inshore
So we netted a livewell pull of peanuts and headed to the
Grounds, water was cold and somewhat clean so decided
To chunk for tuna instead of mahi fish. Put out our spread
And the deep bait gets picked up. Corey and Mike did a
Great job on the fish and had the 300lb thresher boatside
In a little under 45 minutes. Continued chunking no takers
Tried trolling no takers, hit a few lumps to jig again nothing.
Guys decided to head in as the wind started to pick up.
Good guys that will enjoy some fresh steaks!
