Westport Tuna
« on: August 10, 2019, 11:09:45 AM »
Made a run out Thursday about 45 miles SW.  The morning started out a little slow with singles and a few doubles in the troll with no conversions.  Afternoon went WFO and every troll bite converters to bait.  Good luck out there and don’t quite too early.

Wow Jake  :clap:

Show us your bait tank setup.
Where did you place the slurry bucket?

Inquiring minds....

This last trip I put the slurry bucket in the motor well and held it in place with a few straps.  It works well you just have to set it up so you can easily move it if anyone is helpful and tangles their fish in the prop.

Bait tank is a 50 gallon defiance big salt and a 1100 gallon pump 1.5 inch outflow.  Keeps the bait perfect.  I drain the tank for the run in as I usually have a few fish and dropping the 400 pounds of water helps keep things somewhat efficient.

I use kill bags for the ice about 400-500 pounds.  I actually had enough ice and kill bags to take care of another 15-20 fish without cutting the heads off.  I didn’t want to get too greedy so I made the crew stop fishing.  One more cast can put a bunch of fish on the deck in a hurry. I fish a 3 man crew for tuna and I have no kill bags or coolers on the deck.

Absolutely Epic, FA.   :clap:

If this picture doesn't answer questions about whether Arima's are butt heavy or not, I don't know what will.  Ice, bait tank 700# of fish and a 150 is a total mic drop and the next time we have that debate I dropping this pic on them.   :rimshot:
