Ali and Rush join up with their Australian friend and owner of Nomad Tackle, Damon Olsen to target bluefin tuna in San Diego. The tuna have been around but have been playing hard to get so the guys will need to use every trick they have in their book to get the Nomad lure designer his prize.
“The mix of tuna, both species and size, gives something for everyone in SoCal waters,” said Ali Hussainy. “If it were only giant tuna, it would be hard for everyone to land these big fish.”
“But this year has showcased some jumbos and we wanted to get Damon on one with the kite and the flyer. What’s really cool is that despite the evolution of fishing tackle compared to the last time these tuna were in our waters, we are using flying fish and kites just like early anglers did 100 years ago.”
