"Our first day of fishing turned out OK," wrote skipper art Taylor June 12. "We ended up with 47 albacore (in the 20 to 30-pound class) and five bluefin tuna in the same range. Those are nice sizes. All methods worked today. There were troll fish, mega bait fish and of course baitfish.

"There were good signs of fish around and on some of the stops we saw good amounts of fish, but it didn\'t bite. Other boats in the area had better fishing for bluefin tuna so we are electing to stay the night and try again tomorrow for this good-size albacore and bluefin tuna. Our new sonar performed as expected and so we know it works, and well! Looking forward to tomorrow with a full day here instead of just an afternoon."

The next day, June 14, Art wrote: "We haven\'t moved yet this morning. The bluefin tuna are biting a little, starting first thing this morning. We have 30 bluefin tuna aboard and we still have a few hooked. Fish around us and under us...a great way to start the day."
