Don Beshada December Trip

Had Don Beshada and the boys out today, plan was to look for tuna to start the day, covered 150 miles and didnt see any signs of tuna until we were 5 miles from the dock, wtf?! Saw them a few times but couldn't get a cast on them. Luckily we hit a wreck that was loaded and we had a nice haul on jumbos to 6lbs.
