Captains Billy Wells and Collin Byrd were fishing on MGFC’s The Wild Bill out of Venice, LA last week. The targeted species — as is most often the case — was yellowfin tuna. Wells and Byrd successfully put their charter on yellowfin tuna, and the deep blue sea had something else in mind for this group, too.
“We had tuna everywhere,” says Wells. “Just boiling the surface really close to the boat. We already had landed seven yellowfin all at about 70 lbs., but there were plenty more to be had.”
