On December 3, the Rooster reported:
"Hi All! We have so far 28 tuna between 70-100lbs! We got here at about lunchtime. It has been a pretty good sign. Bob Michener was the Hot Dog today with a 199-pounder on the kite and another tuna at 204 pounds. We are at Hurricane Bank. The weather has been just great! Can't complain there! The WiFi has not been cooperating, so I am not able to post any pictures or reports till we get the issue resolved. We will report again tomorrow, via the Red Rooster III Office."
