    well i can now say that ive been tuna fishing maybe next time ill be able to say i was tuna catching but for right now ive been tuna fishing. we had a fun time though my son was scared on the way out,we had about 4 ft seas,then he was feeling sick so he kinda found him somewhere to lie down and spent most of the day there.we fished all day but never had a bite,there were 3 tuna hooked in our area but not us.when we were heading in we heard on the radio that a man and his wife had been hooked up for two hours and needed help he said he couldnt hold on any longer and gave his position to see if anyone could help well i was ready to go but his friends heard him and were going to help,never did find out how big he was but the others caught were 69" and 74 1/2",our guide estimated them to be around 150 lbs.but thats my story and i thank you for all the luck(next time GOOD LUCK PLEASE)lmao.Happy New Year everyone.
