Tuna fishing is one of the
"loves" of my life. Below are a couple of wonderful
experiences captured on film.
The first is a 144 pound bluefin tuna caught using a kite on an
eight day Royal Star trip in the summer of 1999.
The second photo is of a 67 pound bigeye caught on the troll on
the same trip.
Here are photos are from 2003:
118 # bluefin tuna, a 97# yellowfin tuna and an 87 # yellowfin
I have shown the yellowfin as they were caught at Alijos Rocks;
this location usually gives me BAD luck - but no more.
On this trip I managed 4 fish over 100# out of 25 caught by 25
Previously, on another Vagabond
trip with Bob Gilchrist, I caught this 54 pound yellowfin tuna
25 pound test using a Newell 235! What a great 45 minutes of fun.
The photo at the right shows that even mini calico bass makes
the true fisherman smile.
for next year are: Royal Star 8 Day, Vagabond 3 Day and Vagabond
