Its been hit and miss with the bluefin bite over the past couple of days and yesterday was a nice hit for us on those beautiful grade fish. We have great folks on the boat – and a combo of 3 different groups became cohesive. Big thanks to the following donors for their generosity: Sara from Five Star, Mark from Chark Bait, Ed Hosaka (rod wrapper extraordinaire), Peter from Big Hammer, Ken’s Custom Reels and Tady Lures. Also thanks to Steve Powell – acting chartermaster this year in Chris’s absence…and to Bill Randall for all his contributions.
