Great report from Heidi and Jim O’Calligan:
It was pouring rain this morning when we got up and it certainly looked like today was going to be a total washout. After a 2 hour delay, the rain stopped and it didn’t rain on us again for the rest of the day.
Turned out to be an outstanding day with Captain Antonio and Mate Fito!!!! We got 5 yellowfin tuna from 30 to 35 pounds. Jim got the biggest. I got 3, two of which were at least 30. Those were a lot of fun.
And, check out the size of the head of this sailfish that Jim caught. Captain estimated it was 150 pounds. I caught one about a 120.. They were the biggest sailfish either of us have ever caught. And they both gave us a very good fight!
We got video of everything!! We are spent to say the least!! What an amazing day that started out looking like it was going to be a washout!!!!
We kept 2 bags of tuna for dinner, gave one bag to the mommy who lives in the house on the beach and the rest went to Antonio and Fito and their families.. Again, what an amazing day what an amazing day this turned out to be!!!!!
