7-4-09 east of chatham report

4:00am....Rt6 exit 9....tire explodes...%$%$%$%$. find a spare and limp to ryders cove and clear the inlet at 6. Find some life but decided to keep going. 550 FOW we found some tuna crashing on bait. Get the spread out and swing the bars into the fish. Fish on! 10 minutes later my dad throughs the harpoon at a 60'' fish. After that the tuna never came up till we had to leave. Decided to head home. Wind picked up, made for a %$%$%$%$ty ride in. About 2 miles from the inlet we spin the prop...made for 6 or so miles at 7 MPH. Get the boat on the trailer, and again on Rt6 the tire blows out. Managed to find another spare and get going to be at the house at 630. Report may sound lame, but I am wiped out!

Nice job/fish. Saw your boat in the rest area heading north on 6A around 4pm-ish and didn't think it could be good. I was heading south to a cookout in Brewster. Glad to hear you that neither blowout caused you even more grief!
