Palagics catches

1st time doing An actual fishing report

Ended up going out for a long day on the boat yesterday perfect conditions so wethought we would make our way over to the Fads didn't quite make it there but seen a few bird bust ups on the way so we quickly hooked up the lures and the bang we where on.

4 tuna later and tried for a bottom bash and came up with just an eel what a stupid thing they are.

Was a good day over all

 with the tuna fillet it up

 with the tuna fillet it up removing all the dark flesh. you can either roll it in cracked black pepper or lemon pepper and bake in the oven but make sure its not too long as it can dry out . another way is to just seer it in a pan with butter . or as some do sushimi with soy sce
