Quick Tuna report from John at the lodge!

Went fishing last Saturday, since I have a nice week off after that great Tournament that we hosted, went with my friend Dr. Cattan of David , Capt. Macho and capt. Sergio, made bait in Isla Biuda with some nice Blue Runner, so we start heading between
Coiba Island and Jicaron , we encountered some nice school of Yfts in Punta Hermosa and tried Popping for them using OTI komodo popper, got one after trying for half hour, so we figure the fishes were not too interested in wood, so we start flipping the blue Runners over using my favorite spinning gear, OTI xtreme w/ Stella 20000 , I wanted to test this set up on a nice big cow , caught a few of them between 50# to 70 #, definitely a enjoyable fight on spinning , then I hook in to one and start peeling and burning line , I said oh S!@##$ !!!, Macho gets on the wheel quick , I am going to run out of line, it went like that for a 5 to 10 minutes , and then the line slack but there was still something on( half a fish) , this time I said F!@#$ ! F!@##$$ , I was so sure i had a big fish, anyway a big shark took my fish and bit it right in half, Oh well ! , we had a good day fishing got into more school near the southern tip of Coiba, weather is perfect , we did not encounter any rain at all….. enjoy the Pics! ( Yes I only have one fishing shirt )
