I don’t post to often but I want to give a huge shout out to the San Diego for fishing yesterday. The day started out pretty slow on the first stop we picked up around 10 yellowfin between 30 to 50 pounds. I managed to get one on that stop around 40. Over the next several hours it was fairly slow but the crew worked hard to put us on the fish and I managed one more yellowfin between 20 to 30 during the day. The day was getting late but the San Diego never stops hunting fish until they are back at the dock. On the last stop of the day captain Matt called out we were over a huge spot of fish and they were big. The crew threw out net fulls of chum and all around the boat there were huge explosions. Then captain Matt called out the fish were 200 to 300 feet down under the boat so I an a few other people dropped down our rubber band sinker rigs. Next to me one someone else hooked up first and everyone could tell it was a big fish. His ended taping out at 130 pounds. I dropped a sinker rig down on my Talica 10 on a Phoenix black diamond 7 foot 6 30-80 rod spooled with 65 pound max cuatro and a 15 foot leader of Sunline fc100 40lb year flourocarbon with a 1/0 owner mutu and 6 ounce sinker rig. I was slowly letting out line and watching the other guy fight his fish when I got picked up. When I put the reel in gear and the circle hook set it started swimming towards the boat so I and the crew thought I had a small one on. We all thought that until the fish realized something was wrong. The fish then took a massive run and was ripping line and proceeded to take me around the boat several times. After what had to be close to an hour long fight and several laps around the boat and hand offs to avoid tangles and give my arms a rest we brought the beast on to the boat. I want to give a huge shout out to James and captain Matt and the rest of the crew for helping me land my personal best bluefin tuna. The fish taped out over 150 and is my biggest fish I have caught. I didn’t think after 2 weeks ago catching a 70 to 80 pound bluefin and an 80 to 90 I could beat that day but I did. In my opinion the San Diego is the best full day boat in the fleet for putting you on fish. Thanks again to all of the crew on the San Diego for another great trip I can’t wait til next time. If you go out on one of these full day trips make sure you have a heavier outfit with a sinker rig tied up incase you come across one of these fish.
