Today was a pretty day looks like we have a small cold front tomorrow, but should go through pretty fast. I think Wednesday is going to get pretty again. We had a good catch of tunas by the end of the day but it took a lot of effort to get them. We had 6 of them by lunch, but it kinda quit until we seen the tunas had driven a bait ball on top of the water and were in a frenzy. We had the first pass on it. When the ball of whitewater went under the rigger we had a short rigger bite then a flat line then another. All In all we had 1 yellowfin bite and were holding onto to 3 big eyes which when I saw the bites I instantly called them over 200#. Things settled down and we caught the yellowfin real quick. Now all we have is the monster bigeyes. We had them on 5 mins and all of a sudden one pulls off. Crap!! We have two now. A few second later with intense amount of pressure suddenly falling over us because of the recent loss another one comes off. The 100# crank on swivel breaks at the welds. Crap!!! The odds of that happening are very slim. So now we have one left feeling good that it is on a 50 tiagra with fresh 80# mainline and 200# fluorocarbon leader we are still fighting. The fish is still very powerful pulling with an unimaginable amount of pressure. He makes a last ditch effort and takes off with an already low spool and ends up parting the mainline. Crap!!!! All we are left with is the one 40# yellowfin very glad to have him but very upset to what the outcome to the rest of the fish was. After collecting ourselves we set out trolling around hoping for another chance. It slowed right down to nothing. The fish were starting to jump all around for miles chasing flying fish, so we switch over to the kite catching 2 more by the end of the day. Having caught all 9 tuna in all and a lost gaffer for the day. Action packed all day only at Oregon Inlet.
