7/30 Finicky Yellowfin

Today we ran out on the Boss Lady to the inshore lumps to setup on the chunk again. We setup on the drift at first light and had no action. We reset for a second drift and had a tuna hit a spot suspended from a kite, but the tuna missed the hook. Shortly after we hooked into a Mahi on a free floating chunk that broke the 10# mark. We had great bait marks, and this continued throughout the day. We marked sand eels, squid, and sardines.

Things remained somewhat slow until we were able to get hooked into a nice tuna which hit the deck. We were able to hold that school and pull in a double header. The fish were really finicky and we could only get our bites with light leader. Towards the end of the day we got one more tuna to cap off a solid day of fishing. Slow but steady pick. There were a few boats that had some wahoo on the chunk, hopefully we can get into some of them tomorrow.
