Went out for an afternoon trip. Few minutes after leaving the lagoon we saw a school of fish but no bite. We went through 3 to 4 schools of tuna and bonito but no success. We saw also a school of sailfish but no attack. So we decided to cange technique and hook a bonito. We went again and this time it was a nice yellowfin tuna. After one hour of fight the tuna was down behind the boat but did not wanted to come up. After few more minutes it starte coming up. Few meters from the boat the rod broke but we were able to bring it up and gaff it. We were back to the beach with 2 nice fish.
