Left indian river inlet late - 2 people on our crew drank a little too much so we waited until 445...they never showed so we rolled! A little sporty in the morning on the way out, it took us 3 hours to hit the rockpile. The water we saw was about 10 miles south east, so we ran about 5 miles and started trolling in 62 degree green blue water. Made our way out to the 461 lump by 10am and found 67-68 degree water but we marked nothing. We got our first pull around 1045 headed back toward the 100 line in 64 degree water but came loose. We stayed in that area and around 1245 the long rigger starts singing. Tuna!!! Boated a nice 30 pound yellowfin. It was quiet for 2 hours and then life started to appear in this area everywhere. Whales, dolphins, sunfish, Rays even saw either big eye or bluefin jumping straight out of the water. Around 245 my friend changed the cedar plug on the flat line for a red headed joe shut and not even 2 mins later, the 50 started singing. Took drag for awhile, put it on full drag and prayed he would slow down. Finally stopped him and sunk a gaff in a 150 +/- big eye around 4. By then fish were everywhere - we didn't even take a break (only 3 man crew). Re-rigged and 5 mins later 4 rods start singing again. We boated 2 more 40 pound yellowfin - by then it was dark. We packed it up and headed in. Flat calm seas. Made it in around 830. Awesome trip!
