The Catch
Tuna (Yellowfin)

During the months of March and April we have the big tuna migration and every year a lot of fisherman come to try their luck at catching one of these powerful fishes.They have arrived on time this year and our first customer for this month caught his after some patience.We first saw a boat fishing in the same school as us get a strike and we got ours about 30 minutes later.The Big tunas (100 - 200 lbs) hunt with the pod of dolphins but you need to do a lot of turning around the dolphins that are feeding on small fishes.You need to fight against one of those fishes to understand what i mean by powerful.On the way back a blue marlin came on our short corner lure and hit it 3 times without getting a hookup…....we will look for him next time…...............
