We just received this letter and photos from Mike Vise from Sacramento, California. He has been a faithful Pisces client for many years and decided to enter the Tuna Tournament this year, he didn't win but had a great time anyway as his words and photos will tell you.
Crew were ready to go early and were on the boat before sun up preparing last minute details.
The dawn was beautiful as boats headed out to the starting line.
Mike got a nice tuna shown here from left to right, deckhand Beto, Mike, Fernando & Kikon
Of course who can resist our local beggar Pancho, who pleaded for any left over bait.
Mike snapped a picture of the infamous Carnival cruise ship before the engine room fire, this is the one in the news last week for being stranded at sea with no power.
"Well we are finally back into the swing of things here at home and miss Cabo a lot as usual.
Just want to take some time and thank everybody at Pisces for a great trip again. I really want to thank Tracy for letting me borrow Beto during such a busy time, and letting Marissa on the Oceanus for the start of the first day. Also a big thank you to Ady and Ale for helping me with all my questions leading up to the tournament and taking care of all the details. Then there is the crew, awsome as always! They make it so much fun to be out there, they make you feel like family. I was still a bit under the weather the practice day and had to come back early, but had a lot of fun on Thursday afternoon hanging on for the boat ride back to Cabo. The wind was crazy that day and made for some fun on the Adriana. Then Friday we were headed for where I lost that big wahoo, when Fernando spotted some feeding tuna. We worked it with 1 other boat, which left after 10 minutes, and Fernando hooked the 68 pounder on live bait, and I had it in the boat in about 20 - 30 minutes. Stayed with the school of porpoise and Beto landed a nice 35 - 40 pound tuna on a cedar plug. Caught 2 other small tuna and called it a day, headed to the scales for the official weight, and then off too have few drinks and some good food.
I am sending some more pictures of the tournament and of the crews, also a picture of the Carnival Splendor pulling into Cabo the second day of the tournament, which wont be pulling into Cabo any time soon.
Again thank you and everybody for anther great trip and I plan on doing it again next year. Talk too you soon."
Mike Vise, Sacramento, Ca.
