First tuna trip

So I got a call last week, a friend of mine bid on a tuna charter at an auction and won! He invited me and a few other guys along for the ride. Any suggestions on what to bring, what questions to ask and what are the do's and dont's. I have never been on a charter of any kind, I'm used to doing it
Myself so just looking for some impute and what my expectations should or shouldn't. Be. Either way this is my first tuna trip and I am so excited that I can barely contain myself the thought of reeling in a tuna of any size is mind blowing. Thanks guys Poncho

There you go, all the info you'll need!

If it is a charter depends on the charter, ask them!

Given the diversity of the human species, there is no “normal” human genome sequence. We are all mutants.

My fishing partner has had 6 trips with Dom. Has not even seen a tuna. And no one is on the fish more than Dom. Hes got bad tuna vibes.
