Tunas and a Marlin Posted by Top Notch Charters 07-04-12

Yesterday we started out tuna fishing were we heard of some bites late in the day, the day before. Before long we had a billfish in the spread...

We hooked him and got the release on this nice white marlin. Then a little while later we found the tunas. We managed to get whacked and only managed 1 out of about 5 bites. This was the start a very frustrating day pulling off tunas. We got whacked many times and pulled off about 5 fish including 1 at the boat. We caught 1 more tuna, a nice gaffer dolphin, and a few skipjacks. Late in the day, we had a long rigger go screaming and then got a bit off so I assume it was a wahoo. I hope they hold on tight better tomorrow. At least you get some fresh tuna and dolphin for the grill for the fourth.

Thanks for fishing with us. We look forward to it again next year.
