    Saw my boys picture on one of threads so I thought I would share tuna trip last Sunday July 26th. We were trolling by Pt. Pinos about 3 mikes out when we hooked a triple on BFT. We ended up losing one but boated the other 2 about 2 plus hours later. Estimated weight was 169 and 141. I have video of hookup but can’t seem to post it. Maybe someone can help me on that. Trolled Rapalas and cedar plugs 300 feet back. Great day with my 2 boys. 9F4EF077-EB69-4CC8-B9C3-24E118782D40.jpeg F9EFBB13-D6ED-48E8-B610-78C6595F8D67.jpeg 45DA5A86-C3A6-4F25-B261-7BC26EF1C516.jpeg

    Bet you $100 you can’t catch another blue fin (I must be present on boat at time of catch to claim money).
