    Here is a report from Zancudo Lodge owner Gregg Mufson with an amazing video

    If you are a fisherman, this video is truly amazing.

    Zancudo Lodge captains, Javier, Tito, Elvis, Rafa B, Rafa L, Abilio, and my friend Demian joined me on a 2 day offshore adventure and this is what we stumbled upon on Day 1! All of us said that this might be a once in a lifetime event that most fisherman dream of. It was an amazing tuna feeding frenzy where it was a wide open tuna bite with mostly 40lb tunas crashing into blue runners. Usually the blue runners do the terrorizing but on this occasion, the school was huddled at the top of the water as tuna crashed threw the bait ball and they had no where to go. Enjoy this truly epic experience. So come join us at The Zancudo Lodge for the ultimate fishing adventure.

    i don't want do date my self but i can remember in the sixties runing a bait boat off the coast of mexico i had seven good men in the rack hauling the fish on as fast as they could buy the end of the stop we had over 1700 fish in the wells and on deck , days like that you have no trouble sleeping , it is a true site to behold

    thats how it started , i have actule fished with 4 pole one hook fish and it takes some skill i know those days are long gone for this old man i get exited just thinking about how it was in the early days when our navigation was a sextant and paper charts then we progressed to loran a to what we have today .

    as far as taging that has been going on for at least 40 years that i know of in 1972 we did a charter for the inter tropical tuna commision we did 1800 red &1800 yellow tags we were at sea for 11 months only going in twice for food and fuel in a big old wooden boat , wow have things changed

    smooth sailing travler
