Ponce 7/26- Slow bite still

We were shooting for Friday and I bailed on weather and drove up to see him for dinner in NSB. Nice night at JB's Fish Camp-

After Dinner and cocktails Phil convinced me to trailer back up Sunday and go Fishing. Plan was to meet up with another boat(Sailfish) and run deep

Boat rigged in the rain Saturday night

Arrive at ramp at 6- Mental note- One may know how to reel in a Tuna but it does not mean he can back a boat down....3 tries and bingo we are on our way

Ran out about 30 in a little bit of a washing machine and dropped lines in at 150'

We had a slow start but Jay hooked quick and grabbed a 40 lb wahoo and then a 25lber. Grabbed this shot before he departed at the end of day.

We worked out to 300'- Found weeds and flyers, temp breaks and rips, but nothing more. At the end of trolling we missed one woo, one sail and 24 short strikes (Cuda's). Tough bite

Ran in for a little bottom

I had a monster hit- reeled hard and turned the fish. Almost to the surface and then limp.... Pulled this up. Never straightened one out

We did not catch giant Tuna but had a great time and great weather
It did eat good though
