I went and did it again. Got on the Mustang out of H&M landing, ( parking sucks) First thing the skipper said, if you have spinning gear, take it back to you vehicle. The yellow and blue fin we have been getting are 25-85 lbs, with a average of 35+. He wasn't BSing. We stared our drift at about 6 AM and didn't star engines until 7:30 last night. These blue fin were some of the strongest I have ever caught. My fight went on for just over and hour. My friend who is twenty years younger got one slightly smaller and went took longer to get on the deck. I stopped at four total, one blue fin three yellow fin for a total of 140 lbs. + or -. My biggest was 50 lbs, so they said. Maybe, maybe not, who am I to disagree. The highlight of the day was when we got a visit from a Mako shark that was somewhere near 500 LBS. He ate well until they were able to convince him leaving was for the best. I'll leave it at that. I was about five feet away when he got a tune just before clearing the rail and took the tail off another. I think this was my last trip for the year. I have no idea how muck canned, smoked and vac. packaged but I'm in the process of doing more. I might go again to try for a cow.
