Default Offshore

Went out on Wednesday to the dip for a overnight tuna run pleasantly surprised by allot of sea life spread out throughout the area talked with some other boats having good luck we landed a beautiful sword 4 yellows and 15 tile the most impressive point of this trip was watching a 400+ blue marlin steal my yellow it was something out of Nat geo
to see a fish inhale a whole yellowfin before my eyes not to mention now we had a blue marlin on such a coincidence the blue managed to hook himself on my 50 penn int that turned into a 1.5 hr fight until he broke off in my rudder trying to run up along side him it seem to be fine backing down but once I got along side him to run up he knew what to do I’ve only seen stuff like this on tv not in real time to see a fish like that tail dancing around 100 yards behind our Topaz it was one of my best trips off the edge

Every time to the Edge, I see something I haven't seen before. It's an amazing place. Thanks for the report and nice Sword !!

I'd love to learn where you caught those Tiles. (PM if you like. )
