7-11-09 Jenny Lee's First Tuna

I was lucky to get an invite to go aboard the Jenney Lee Saturday and be on the rod for the boat's first tuna. Went out to the Southwest corner but after a couple hours of minimal activity we decided to make a move. Arrived in the new area and were greeted by whales and tons of bait. Put a couple rods out and had a fish on shortly after. Here's a couple pictures of the happy crew posing with the fish.

Thanks guys. I have learned so much from this board and others like it. We were trolling, slow - about 2-2.8 kts sog wiht live pogeys on 80# fluorocarbon. We were using those snaps that split in half and then basically lock the leader into them. When we got the tuna boatside, it was only hanging on by 1/2 of the hook as the snap swivel had come undone in the fight. I don't think we'll be using those again. Any other suggestions?

I am thinking wind on swivel to my line directly. No snap.

any opinions?

BTW - the harpoon is THE BOMB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just don't try to lift the fish with it like a gaff. I might need replacements for my poon shaft. LOL.

The way I've been rigging is a wind on swivel between the running line and the fluorcarbon topshot. The I put a heavy split ring on one end of a 200 lb (+) barrel swivel. Then double palamar the barrel swivel. It can be a pain to change lures, especially if the eye is thick metal like some tuna hooks.

Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn.

Dan was the angler.

I was the Capt.

Chuck was the gaffer and butcher.

I threw the poon and it went right in just behind the gill plate. The second it his, the water just went red. somehow, I then tried to lift the fish with the poon shaft. doh!!!! I need a new poon shaft. don't try this at home. LOL.

ATG I think they are the 550's. They are big strong and never open under any conditions. Confidnece in your terminal gear is huge.
