8/17-18/13 — Bigeyes and Longfin!!

We fished overnight Saturday into Sunday and had great trolling action!

Our first shots on the troll were longfin tuna and we quickly put a few in the boat to break the ice.

At dusk we got the bite we were looking for and the guys went to work on a 140 pound bigeye tuna.  After 25 minutes we had the fish on the boat and the guys were pumped.

The night bite was non-existent but it gave us a chance to rest up for the morning.

Once again, the morning saw huge explosions behind the boat and we connected with another bigeye tuna.  This fish was a little tougher but the guys got it to the boat in 30 minutes and Doug sunk the harpoon.  This one was 180 pounds.

Back on the troll we picked up a few more longfin before heading for the dock.

August 2013 Fishing Update

We’ve been fishing a lot recently and I haven’t had time to update the website as much as I’d like.  Recently we’ve done everything from half day fluke trips to extended overnight trips offshore.

On the inshore grounds the action has been fierce.  On most half day trips we’ve had over 40 fluke with a handful of keepers.  Our best trip was 12 keepers to 28 inches.  That’s some good eating!

On the inshore Bluefin front we’ve had a mixed bag of Bluefin tunas and mahi-mahis.  We’ve been fortunate enough to come home with a Bluefin tuna on each of our trips and released as many as 12 more.

Offshore is heating up! Bigeye tuna, longfin tuna, yellowfin tuna, white marlin, mahi mahi, wahoo, swordfish and mako sharks have been caught recently.  It should only get better from here.
