Konishi-San of Carpenter came to the U.S. in February 2012 to fish for bluefin tuna with Sami. Konishi-San brought 3 other anglers, including Tashiro-San of the Sunrise, Nishio-San, and Ajiti-San. The group traveled to Hatteras, North Carolina and fished for four days on the Tuna Duck.
The crew ended up landing 8 tuna out of 17 hooked over the four days, all on topwater using stickbaits. Needless to say, we think Konishi-San and friends will be back next year.
