On November 15, Red Rooster III Captain Andy Cates wrote, "Yesterday we caught 60 tuna mostly school-size fish, although we managed to get three big ones: Charlie Martinez caught a 270 pounder, Mike Toetter caught a 243, Nick Rekrut won the Accurate Reel for catching the third-biggest fish over 200 pounds. His fish was a 216-pound tuna! We had 18 to 22 fish at the 80 to 100-pound class, and half a dozen at the 140 to 180-pound class.

"This morning we have about 30 fish so far; half a dozen at 80 to 120-pound class, a couple at 196 pounds. Mike Toetter caught a 209-pounder. It has been slow but we are getting fish. We will try to get some pictures as soon as we get a better signal!"
