Tuna Beat Down with the Eric Perez Charter

Had new customer Eric with cousins Salvador and Jose, and buddy Dave. Plan was to wait for the weather window and it came after a 5 hour wait leaving at 6pm, made good time to our spot in the Hudson and began chunking, had our first bites around Midnight landing 2 Longfin, missed some more fish whille the guys got comfortable with the fish and the gear since Eric and his cousins were Tuna newbies. Around 1 pm had a unreal bite which each of the guys fought for close to half an hour which was lost after wrapping itself on a lobster pot. Started chunking again and around 4 am it happened, had a steady bite for the next hour, even with just keeping one rod in the water the guys landed 13 Longfin to 40lbs, Yellowfin to 70lbs, and 20lb Bull mahi. After the dust settled and boxes filled the charter opted to run home in flat seas, great night with the guys and congrats for all 3 of the guys busting there tuna cherries!
