Holy Moly!  San Carlos might now be called Cowtown!  I know the ladies tournament doesn't allow bait but anyone not fishing the tournament might want to bridle up barilete's  this weekend and run them deep.... :)

We did not have a scale..however I put a tape on the fish,,it was 57 inches in Girth and 62 inches long..based on the FORMULA  girth x girth x lenght divided by 800 it was  245 pounds or so plus or minus 10%...

I have a 165 pound YF on the scale and can tell you this fish was way bigger than mine......200 or 250  who knows for sure but what a great fish...wow

tight lines

Biggest YF in San Carlos in a long time for sure..maybe ever .congrats to lucky 2 & crew

BIG congratulations, Ray and Vicky (?)!  Let's see now: you have been fishing San Carlos for about 3 years I think, and I've been fishing here for 32 years and have never seen any tuna bigger than 80 pounds until your fish.

It just ain't fair:P!

Dick

(p.s. since many of the boats here would have been spooled or the terminal tackle would have broken, please tell us what gear and how much line you had on the outfit that landed that trophy fish)

Dick, there have been a few over 80 lbs caught here in 32 years.  The boats Bittersweet caught a 126 or better (verify w/Ricardo Negro on Reel Fast) Que Sera caught several in the 100 lb range and more recently think there was one caught that weighed around 155.  One boat I know caught 6 that weighed a atotal of 800 lbs so that's about it.

There are a couple other tales lingering from the last couple days. Will tales come true? Manana maybe.

Lot of bait out there today. You could follow the ripples of fish swimming underneath the surface. Great reports of dorado farther out. Some large ones are being found! The surface temps jumped up to 80.

IN RESPONSE TO YOUR TACKLE QUESTION, FOLLOWING IS A LIST:

ROD, DIWA ELIMINATOR, 5 1/2 FT. MEDIUM ACTION, 50 # CLASS

REEL, 50-W. LEVEL WIND/ LEVER DRAG (NOT AVAILABLE ANY MORE):X

    BACKING- 50 YDS. 80# MONO

    500 YDS. 80 #POWER PRO BRAID

     TOPSHOT- 100 YDS. 80# MONO

HOOK MUSTAD 8/0 NEEDLE EYE.

UNFORTUNATELY THIS  ROD WAS THE LIGHTEST ACTION ROD IN THE SPREAD, SO I HAD TO WORK A LOT HARDER.

INCIDENTLY, THE CONGRATULATIONS MUST BE BESTOWED UPON THE CAPTAIN, MY WIFE, KATHY BUCY. SHE NOT ONLY PUT US ON THE TUNA, SHE EXPERTLY BACKED DOWN AND KEPT THE LUCKY II IN THE EXACT PROXIMITY OF THE Y/T AT ALL TIMES.I ON THE OTHER HAND, GOT THE GRUNT JOB, SHE KEPT COMMANDING; REEL/REEL/REEL.

GO AHEAD GUYS, EAT YOUR HEART OUT, NOT ONLY IS SHE A FANTASTIC SKIPPER, SHE LOVES TO FISH AND IS BEAUTIFUL.

ADDITIONALLY, WE REALLY HAD OUR HANDS FULL FOR ABOUT 5 MINUTES ; AS WE HAD A DOUBLE, HOOK UP. UNFORTUNATELY THE SECOND GRANDE CUT THE LINE ON IT'S TEETH:?.

IT TOOK APPROXIMATELY 2 HOURS TO BRING THE FISH TO THE SURFACE AND SECURE IT..

THANKS FOR THE INQUIRY

KATHY & RAY BUCY LUCKY II

Here's a decent one I brought in. Oct of '06? 40 miles out of SC.  Not me in the pic, not my undies, the mullet is actually a wig.
