Action on the Troll - Tuna & Wahoo

This afternoon, Wendy and her friends joined the Lady Pamela II for some deep sea fishing action offshore. They definitely picked the perfect place at the perfect time with the way the Wahoo have been biting. I noticed a beautiful blue edge so I rigged up a few ballyhoo and presented the bait 60 ft below the surface. We trolled from 260 ft – 450 ft of water and landed our first 10 lb Barracuda within minutes. Immediately after our first bite, an Oceanic Tuna was on the line. The action didn’t stop there. The right planner started screamin’ and our angler started the tug-o-war game with a big fish. In the mist of all this, our left rigger bait caught the eye of a nice size Blackfin Tuna. We got the Blackfin in the boat and cleared the lines to focus on our big catch. The 30 lb Wahoo put up a wicked fight and there were many high fives given on the way in.

Tight Lines!
