The boys left the dock around 1 to get there for the first light bite in the 39′ Contender Boats After a bumpy ride out they put lines in around 5am at the temp break they were searching for and immediately had 5 Yellowfin on. Marked the spot and kept hitting it when this 71″ Bigeye hit the Carlson green machine and immediately dumped the Okuma Makaira 80W ‘s topshot off. After about a 45 minute battle it was hit with the Jay Jigs Custom Rod & Tackle harpoon and gaff to end it. Fish ended up weighing 201# gutted.

Ending totals for‘s first day trip to the edge this year was 17 yellowfin and 1 Bigeye. Not a bad way to start off the offshore season!
