    I went to Otay in California and had a heck of a day and caught 2 nice blues. Its been a long while since I caught a good blue and I have it on film as well. Both were caught on cut mackerel and the giant was on a head of a mackerel. Hope you enjoy the video.

    Thanks bro.

    I was using an ugly stick heavy action rod. 30 pound big game. Abu garcia big game 7000. Handled the fish well with that set up.
