 and got chased off the lump by a 30 knot storm. I dont like to mess with weather as you normally lose that battle. On a positive note though we had some good days as well. Dexter got a personal best wahoo on his trip at 76 pounds. That fish bit a pink stretch 30 in teh propwash. We also had a handful of blackfin that day.

On Friday I had Kelly Hanson in the boat from New Orleans for most of this crews first tuna trip. They picked up a 150 pound yellowfin and six blackfin for their trouble

On sunday I had Chris and his crew from Beaumont. We put a whooping on the blackfin that day as we caught 18 of them. We did lose a mondo yellowfin on 60 pound leader that day.

On monday it was back to a little struggle. We stayed on the lump for about 3 hours and only had one bump. That depressing. I decided to leave the lump and head south and look for some fish. I went to a nearby floater and first three chunk baits in the water were three nice yellowfin. Then the sharks showed up. I hit a couple sharks over the head with my gaff before we called it a day and let the sharks have the rig as they just kept coming. We ended the day with a 72 pounder, a 68 pounder and a 30 pounder.

On tuesday it was back to the lump with Kevin Short and his crew. It was a hot early bite as we caught 6 blackfin and 2 yellowfin and then it slowed. I had Kevin and John Preston and his brother on the boat for wed and we smoked the tunas this day. We caught everything on frenzy 7/0 ocean camo blue hooks and frenzy flourocarbon. I think we ended that day with 14 blackfin and three yellowfin.
