"Yesterday, March 20, we rounded up the day with 18 Tuna and 10 Wahoo," reported Red Rooster III. "We saw better sign in the afternoon, and had a late hit with some nice fish at about 190lbs. Half a dozen being about 170 to 190 pounds.

"This morning we had a nice little surprise, seen some nice size fish. We caught 15 Yellowfin Tuna so far, six over 200 pounds, from 220 to 240 pounds; and half a dozen from 150 to 190 pounds. One of the fish taped at 278 pounds. So far this morning it has been very exciting, what a nice surprise!"

The next day, the boat reported: "Yesterday we ended with 21 tuna! 10 of those being over 200 pounds. The biggest at 262. The majority of the fish were around 225 to 240 pounds. Unfortunately this morning only five fish so far. It is still early though. Four of those were 75 to 80 pounds. So today has been a little different. Yesterday was a great day, so we are hoping for more!"
