Our good buddy Bob Hartin and his family took to the Mega Panga as a school of BIG Yellowfin Tuna swarmed our area, and the crafty Captain Alex was on the scene to mop them up!
Bob scored big fish with us way back in 2012, and it’s good to see his fishing prowess is still top-notch.
They added to the big monster Yellowfin from the morning with a armload of 30-40lbs. Yellas later in the afternoon.
Add to that a nice Sailfish and you got a perfect day of blue water action:
Client Bob Hartin and his group brought a great energy to the Wanderer today and on cue the mighty blue beauty delivered the goods for these fellas. Captain William headed offshore for deep water and the boys got off to a fast start.
This awesome Pacific Sailfish came roaring in just after 10am and with Bob on the reel and First Mate Alex coordinating the fight, this billfish release was smooth as silk.
With the trophy fish secure on the metaphorical mantle, the Wanderer switched to the deadly skipping ballyhoo rig and deployed a smaller hookset. The target species for this rig: Dorado!
Look at all the activity in the top of the water column. Captain William has a way of finding spots like this Marine Metropolis.
A trio of 35lbs. monsters were the highlights, but they had two more in the fishbox that weighed at least 25lbs.
Great fun fishing with this group of fired-up hombres…enjoy the filets fellas, but why not let Alex cut them off of the fish first?!
