After bringing in the first mako shark and school bluefin tuna from the canyons earlier in the week, the Canyon Runner from Point Pleasant ran a Saturday to Sunday overnighter that produced the first yellowfin tuna (about 35 pounds) and two dolphin from canyons in over 1000 fathoms off Delaware for David Stratoff and his son. Honors for the first N. J. bigeye tuna fell to a boat in the Canyon Runner reporting team as the Flying Fish landed one in Cape May on the way back from North Carolina.
Hey everyone Sunday we had a good crowd onboard. We caught some nice keepers & had some short action but just not enough. Yesterday we had a charter and went bluefishing. We caught them pretty good for awhile on the flood tide but once it changed it was over.Today (Tuesday) we had some of our regs and some from the Sea Horse and picked at shorts with a keeper Fluke here and there.
We ran our first open boat Sea Bass trip and the life was very good. Too many shorts to fight through to get the keepers. We did manage our boat limit with no problem for 6 anglers plus some nice Ling too.
Made both morning and afternoon trips again today and with the easterly weather we fished in Sandy Hook Bay where it was calm. On the morning trip it was raining and the fishing was not good. On the afternoon trip the action and weather was better but only a few keepers. We did manage our biggest fluke of the season so far.
