Dutch Anglers Get Big Tuna

We have a group visiting from Holland right now, who are having the time of their lives.

Yesteday they fished aboard 38 ft Blackfin " C Rod" and did very well to release a striped marlin and then to boat two hefty yellow fin tuna. The first tuna took a black & green lure and took 45 minutes to land on 80 lb test, weighing 160 lbs; the second fish took a dead ballyhoo and weighed a little under 200 lbs taking one hour and 15 minutes to bring to the boat. They were fishing at the 180 spot on the Cortez side which is about 1 hour and 15 minutes out from Cabo.
