November 14 was a big day for the Wanderer. In the morning, Matty and client Eduardo Barrios caught two little White Tunas, then deep jigged for a nice 25lbs. White Tuna. Then Matty hooked up this massive 50lbs. Cabrilla (Broomtail Grouper).
The fight was short but violent, and about three minutes after this picture was taken, Matty took a 45 minute nap in the cabin.
After picking up Craig at Garza, they went 25 miles offshore seeking the blue water.
After boating several 20-30lbs. Yellowfin Tunas, Eduardo hooked up a beautiful Striped Marlin. He put on a show, but managed to cut the line off on a stray piece of driftwood less than 100 feet from the boat. Eduardo did everything right, but the Stripey got away.
All told they caught eight Yellowfins with the big one weighing 40lbs. Great trip!
