The Catch
Tuna (Yellowfin)

We went out at 7a.m with Dave and his son Zane…30 mins later we hit in a school of bonito, we caught 2 bonito.. and the fish dived just after.
A Little bit further out we found another school of fish from which we caught 2 yellowfin tuna and 4 other bonito. As the bonito were of good size for live bait , we quickly used 2 of them for marlin fishing.  After one hour of slow drive from one spot to another, we got a strike of marlin. It was 400 pounds blue marlin which jumped out of while we hooked it but, unfortunately, the hook came off while it split out the bonito. We realized that the hook was stunk in the head of the bonito..It was an exiting moment but too short. So the fish won the game.
We were back with 7 Bonito and 2 nice Tuna.
