Andreas Toy Bluefin Open Boat trip for Overs!

Had regulars Todd, Rob Bill, Willy and new comer
Jim. Started out looking for schoolies since it was 2
of the guys first Tuna run. With the sketchy reports
Gave the guys the option to run to the land of the
Jumbos for strictly over fish. They said go big or
Go home. Made our way to the grounds and patiently
Waited for our shot and it came and the guys made it
Count. With a team effort they landed a 200lb bluefin,
Great job guys.

Bluefin with Oscar Carillo

Had Oscar back with Ernesto and Randy. Started out
On the bluefin grounds and had found the life. Had a 42
incher in the first pass and figured it would be lights out.
Not! Stayed with bluefin for an hour and couldn’t get another
Bite. Decided to head to the canyon got to the edge and heard
Slow fishing on the tuna so we dropped for Tiles. Had one right away
But bad drift made for terrible fishing. Went on the troll for a few hours
And still slow. Decided to run back inside and found Blue Planet/Nat Geo
Conditions, whales, dolphins, birds, and tuna slashing sand eels on the
surface. Tried everything, every trolling lure and casted everything we
Had but no bites.
