Left the dock at 4:00 am heading towards Massey's Canyon. The group fishing today was Kevin Hogan, Lenny Simmons and Nate Simmons. We arrived at the fishing grounds @ 5:00 am. We set out a four rod spread at various depths using fluorocarbon leaders and circle hooks. We had to downsize the leader size throughout the day in order to get a bite. We ended the day going 1 for 4 on tuna. This was Kevin's first time tuna fishing. Due to the light leader size we had to slowly fight the fish. The fish pictured took the bait at 11:00 am and finally was boated at 3:30 pm. Kevin was on the rod for 2.5 hours and Lenny put in another 2 hours. The fish measured 52" and weighed between 75-85 lbs. A fish well earned and hopefully well liked on the dinner table!
