Cape Cod October 2015

Despite the bad condition and the call for the windy rough weather we still took the initiative call and made it out to sea; the bite was insane in the past 2 days and we were afraid to miss it.
At first light we saw small pods of busting tuna but we did not get the right shot at them. There was a lot of birds and we knew for a fact that those working birds are holding tuna beneath them. The condition was tough and the frenzy feed was far from developing to get a shot at them, they were moving very fast and we could hardly keep up with them.
We decided to quit the chase and head to a different area were we saw working birds. Upon approaching them we saw a small tuna charging sand eels. Bogdan and I took the shot and after 2 twitch I saw the explosion on my lure without feeling the tightness of my line but I still set the hook on my lure to finally feel the tension and here went the run! The fish took a prototype Moutoukenmaru 30 BFT, the biggest ever made so far. After a couple of minutes, the fish showed its color and made it to the gaff with a high five and a smile for all the crew, not a big fish but she surely took a big stickbait lure.
It felt great to make it happen at the end of the day! A big thank you to Captain Josh for his dedication and commitment to make it happen to us, will see you soon Captain!
