6/28 whacking tuna

We had a 16 hour charter on Exile 65 and went searching for tuna. With the scattered reports we decided to focus our efforts fishing the Spencer Canyon and it paid off. The water temp was 71.5 and green, but we marked some bait in the tip which is where we had all of our bites. 

The morning started slow but at 830am the bite started. We caught a double header of yellowfin but only one was a keeper. Soon after we had a triple of nice yellowfins in the upper 40# class and then tripled up again with two nicer ones in this mix that went 55 pounds. We picked at a few more singles of nice size yellowfins and ended the day early with 10 yellowfin tuna in the boat! Sea witches and tuna flares with ballyhoo accounted for the majority of our tunas. Awesome day of tuna fishing!
