Excitement aboard the Pelican

Out of no where an est. 800 lb bluefin tuna skyrocketed the right rigger crashing on the ballyhoo, hooked and running, Arch sped the boat up to chase this monster of a fish.  With about ten yards left on the spool, they were still able to maintain control and gain line and after a great fight the fish was successful at continuing it’s journey in the big blue ocean.  Capt.  Arch said it was one the most amazing things he had seen.  He said it was like my truck just jumping out of the water and crashing on a ballyhoo.  The day wasn’t lost however, they landed a 183 lb. big eye tuna, raised three big eye’s a white marlin and caught their limit of mahi.  An exciting day aboard the Pelican.
