Was out on a charter on Sunday and had a slow morning looking for tuna but was distracted for about an hour with acres and acres of bass. After we got our fill on bass, we headed out again looking for tuna. We ended up finding them but only had a chance at them for about 5 minutes before the fish sounded and were gone. We casted at them, through them but no touch. I was shaking with excitement til we hit the docks. This was my first experience tuna fishing and have caught the bug. Already trying to figure out when I can get out again. Heard from our captain that some large fish were hooked the past few days and a 90+" fish was lost at the boat.
