Fun fishing, we found a bucket at the beginning of the week and in 30 years im sure ive never seen that many fish in my life!As the week went on we found ourselves wondering only to find more dolphin and a few tunas.
It was a slow day for most of the fleet, however we did mange to find the Yellowfin Tuna inside the canyon in about 40 to 50 fathoms. The bigger fish continue to be found in and around the 40 fathom curve, and if you are lucky enough to run into them there are some very Big Bluefin still around these days, as the JUSTIFIED found out yesterday.
Fishing has been hot cold this week but the highlight was the 245 lb giant bluefin measured at 76 caught by Joe Trainor on the Low Profile out of Avalon, NJ!It was unbelievable fishing today as for the first time I can remember we had 150 lb class fish crashing on flat lines 20 feet behind the boat.
After battling the fish on a Penn 70 for the better part of 2 hours we had him at the leader as Joe Bonvetti had this battle won. It was unbelievable fishing today as for the first time I can remember we had 150 lb class fish crashing on flat lines 20 feet behind the boat.
