Launched out of Freeport Texas. 2-3ft seas as we traveled out. Really wasn't that bad even for my boss' 29ft Everglades. Took about 7 hours to get too the rig we wanted to drift and jig. Jigging worked right off the bat.. We fished all night and started free lining flying fish that we netted as they got into range. They were attracted too the boats lights. We cleaned 35 black fin and 1 yellow fin. We caught and released several more. Had a blast! Tuna have got to be pound for pound the hardest fighting fish I've ever hooked into!

It really was a hell of a trip... Arms throbbing from jigging and catching... Literally debated on if I should drop the jig again bc I knew I would catch another one and wasn't sure I could reel it in lol...
