|Hey Guys, hows things? I took my son to San-Pedro for his birthday trip on the freedom out to the "tanner" bank(?) for some BlueFin tuna fishing! 80 to 100lb fish using live squid, if your "rich" get a twospeed reel, either way make sure you're using fresh heavy line and have plenty of it. 65/80 lb braid with a 25yrd Mono topshot of 50/60lb with a 4 or 5 foot floro leader is what was the ticket, also 1/2 to 2 oz egg sinkers, (the glow-inthe-dark kind) were getting bit the best. I was almost totally unprepared, didn't really have a clue, (it ain't albicore fishing!) These fish are MEAN! You better have your (A) game on! Don't expect to buy your terminal tackle at the landing unless you have a fat wallet, I bought 3paks of hooks (15) and 25yrds of 50lb florocarbon for 60$ The "boat" hooked 18 and landed 14 out of the 36 anglers on board. I did hook one but almost instantly lost it so I didn't even count, I did hook and reel in the largest shark I've ever caught, a 10 or 12 footer, brought it to gaff then locked the reel down and snapped it off, don't like to bring sharks on-board for several reasons. Well thats about it, can't wait to go again at the end of dec. hopefully the tuna will still be around...mutt.
Tight lines to all, and to all a good FIGHT!!!
