Open Boat afternoon Tuna Run

Had a great weather forecast and heard of a good late
Afternoon bite and put a quick group text out
To my regulars for a midday run in 1-2 foot seas. Jim,
And son Brett, Larry, and Ron jumped at the chance.
Got to the grounds around lunchtime after 40 knot cruise
And settled in, had just missed a decent bite and figured
With the crowds thinning out we would have a banner day.
Not! The marks and baits had thinned out and it was a grind
Able to land some unders and our first mahi of the season,
a big bull which is surprising this early. Stayed till late hoping
The fish would come on the surface for a top water bite but
never happened!
