Front Page Aug 15 - Pac Star trip



DAY ONE

Weather was lake like with a mild current. We started out in the overnight range 60-65 miles out. We trolled from patty to patty picking away at the firecracker yellows and a few mahis. Towards the end of the day Tunabelly lands a nice 35-40 Bluefin. A short time later Kenji is almost spooled twice on a toad. Unfortunately the tuna and Kenji parted ways.

Here are some pictures submitted from Luke - Thanks ............. tb







DAY TWO

The second day we traveled 60+ miles. The weather had turned snotty overnight. We trolled, and trolled, and trolled, and trolled some more. We ended the day with one lone mahi.

Tommy fixed up Tunabelly's Bluefin for a snack. Sashime, poke, rice and miso soup was enjoyed by all.

The tuna count was low but the attitudes stayed positive. This was an excellent group of anglers to fish with. We'll gettem next time!!

I did not take any pics. If you have any please add to this thread.

George always catches tuna with his custom gold hooks and mint green spectra.
Hopefully the luck will change and the yellowfin tuna will be within range on the "Friday the Thirteenth / Yom Kippur Trip" next month.

Short report because, sadly, not a lot to say. A few fish, one tuna, but it was still a lot of fun. As Ken said, a good group to fish with. There was very little complaining and everyone stayed upbeat, even though it was slow.

Some good fishermen, but only one of these three got a bluefin:



George was kind enough to donate his tuna to the galley.





We did get to watch some excellent movies, including Giant Shark (I think that's the name; George has a lot of monster shark movies.)

I put a rat yellow on the BBQ last night. Fed the whole family with taco meat for lunch.

Heading out on the Tom Cat Wed night. Hope the bite picks up a bit and the weather lays down.

Good thing about a SenorTuna trip is you are always in good company.
