Eclipse Tuna Trip Recap

I just got in from our 1.5 day tuna trip aboard then Eclipse, it was a great trip, The tuna were not very far, about 60 miles south of SD. we had a boat load of anglers as every spot on the boat was sold. Fishing was good early in the morning and we had another snap on the tuna at sunset, in the middle of the day we trolled and looked for yellows and dorado, we didn't get many of those and most of the yellowtail were small. The tuna, bite best on 25 pound test line and a lively sardine. I hope to post some pictures for you tomorrow. On this trip was my dad, it was his first ever offshore tuna fishing trip, he was able to land two of the four fish that he hooked up, nice job dad. In two weeks we have our last tuna trip of the year, it'll be aboard the Dolphin II out of Fisherman's landing in SD, space is limited so sign up soon.
