2 Day Tuna
Captain Carl reports another good trip on the Viking Star! We trolled up just a few mahi mahi and just one albacore so we anchored up early and had a good solid bite for a couple hours! We landed a bunch of albacore, a couple big yellowfin and a Big Eye on the jig! It slowed down through the night, but we still landed a few more albacore, yellowfin and a swordfish! All in all, it was a solid trip and everyone went home with tuna. Steve Scanapico was the Big Eye jigger and did a great job getting it in the boat. He took the tuna pool with the 140lb Big Eye. Pete Borisse caught the swordfish at 75lbs and won the edible pool.
