Got Deanna out for her first time when she was home from school for a week in August. We got into a big fish that chaffed through just before I could dart it. She was more than excited. Finally put one on the deck last week about a third the size.
79" 278# was marking good for a few trips before, thought it was turning on and then came the big Gloucester draggers. Three days later I was using tiny dogfish for hook bait. hopefully now that they are closed the bait will come back. Already better yesterday but no signs of tuna.
