2 for 2 on 7-2

Hit the water late with the winds heavy last nite. Got some bait and motored out to a spot that's been good, got there about 9:00. Didn't look to great but set out a bait on a kite and a ballon bait. Wasn't long till an explosion on the ballon. Bill set the hook and handed the rod off to me. Worked the fish about 30mins, got it up and slid the tape down and was definetly short. Got a gaff in him and swam him till he was kicking good then sent him on his way.

Set up again and it wasn't an hour later and tuna comes out of the water and just sweeps away with the ballon bait. Was alomosty like in slo motion. Motoring off with it, I push drag up and set the hook. Bill fights this one for a half hour and boat side this one is bigger but still couple inches short on the tape. Swim him good and send him off kicking.

Great way to start July!
