Ok so I mentioned that I thought we should get a group of us together and do a group Tuna trip this summer. It sounded like there was some interest by at least a few people. It would most likely be with Newport Marina Store and Charters. I went out with them bottomfishing a few weeks ago and had a blast. I had a chance to talk to the Captain a little bit and it really sounded fun! I have been out Tuna fishing one time, while I had a good time it was far from awesome. We used handlines so there was no fight from the fish, you just drag them in. Which is a very effective way to put meat on the table but not ideal in my book. We could do a 12 or 18 hour trip and here's a link to the website. I will be contacting them soon about dates and group rates, etc. So if you are interested please post here or PM me. We will be using relatively light rods and according to they're website you ARE ENCOURAGED TO BRING YOUR FLY ROD!!!! With that being said I would imagine that using your own rod is an option! I would also like to do a Coho trip with them when the time comes so if you want to do that too I can check on group rates.
