Bluefin Early Morning/Late Evening

Royal Polaris Crew

Hello everyone;   

It’s 0200 hours, and there’s only one crewmember up, he goes to check the ER, and he hears a sound, a very big splash.  He looks over the side, and it’s Bluefin chasing mackerel to the boat.  He grabs a rod with the hot Shimano flat fall, drops it down (about 200 feet), and it stops, but there’s nor bottom.  BANG, he’s on.  The next thing, how do I wake someone up to help gaff this fish.  He put’s it in the trolling straps and wakes up Doug.  By the time Doug get’s on deck, the fish is at color..  Bingo, a nice 100 pound Bluefin hits the deck.  By this time Roy wakes up, he drops down, BANG, he’s on, but the funny thing is, Roy for got to put on his shorts.  So Roy’s fighting this Bluefin in his underwear.  Roy lands another 100 pound Bluefin tuna.  So surprised, he wakes up some of the passengers, still in is underwear.  When all the smoke cleared, we landed 7 Bluefin, all over the 100 pound mark.  

The rest of the day would be very slow, but once the sun went down, it was game on, once again.  This time the fish were larger than this morning.  Largest going 192 pounds, and most in the 120 to 170 pound range, with one fish under 100 pounds.  What a very long day, but very good night bite’s.  Not much more to say, just show some photos from our action today.  We ended our day with the same amount of Bluefin as yesterday, with one surprise, one Yellowfin tuna.  We are now headed south and try our luck at some Yellowtail, Dorado, and Wahoo. 

Weather continues to be excellent,with flat seas, overcast skies, and a bit chillymost of the day.  So until tomorrow, wish us luck.  Team R/p.
