Went 29 miles to just turn around since forecast wasn't coming true. Could only comfortably make 8 mph so decided to throw spread in and troll back to inlet. About 2 hours into way back we got a good knock down that stayed tight. I cleared the other lines while brother kept boat pointed into waves and kept the line tight with the throttle. 10 mins later we boasted this 42" bluefin.20220801_110510.jpg

I had a nice salty ice slurry for him and packed his cavity after gutting. Really tasty fish, sand eels make them taste good...
