    AND THE BEAT GOES ON
    The East Cape continues to enjoy an unprecedented big tuna season. In years past the Jen Wren team have always managed to land a handful of tuna over a hundred pounds but it really wasn't all that common. This year the big boys showed up in May and have been giving anglers all they want ever since. It is always exciting watching rod tips thump from the tail beat of big tuna.

    In May we were finding the big dogs with bottle nosed dolphin and then the spotted and spinner dolphin showed and joined the party. Now it seems the dolphin have left the building and large schools of the bruisers are camping out on the 88 fathom spot.

    The best bite has been in the afternoon when most of the boat traffic leaves. Several days we have witnessed the fish pop up as soon as the traffic thins outs. This has made long days for us but has also been very rewarding watching anglers have an experience of a life time with these trophy sized fish.

    Right on cue blue marlin have shown on the seen. This is exciting news with the East Cape Bisbee in just over 3 weeks. Yesterday Mahatini brought in a blue that scaled out at 503 pounds. Just a bit further off shore and also near the shark buoys quality sized dorado and smaller tuna have been cooperating with anglers.

    This has been an outstanding week for Jen Wren III. The smiles on anglers faces in the photos below tell the whole story.

    Mark,

    Makes perfect sense that the late bird gets the worm in this case. Nice that you spend the extra time to get your anglers a real shot at the tuna-of-a-lietime.

    Totally sucks that I won't be able to fish the East Cape Bisbee's this year. The only consolation would be if you win it pulling one of the Bomboy's. :hali_olutta:

    You have my permission to tell the story of the not-so-lucky Lucky Linda. The Bomboy's you have are the smaller end of the Bomboy spectrum. Not that the big blue girls don't sometimes eat the little lures, but nothing like having the magilla Gorilla swimming on the short corner when after Blue's.

    Zane, It was not the Lucky Linda's fault. The brand new lure wasn't in the water 10 minutes when a nice tuna inhaled it. It was unlucky the angler let go of the rod while fighting the fish and I'll never see it again.

    Great report Mark! keep em coming.
    Seems this years been more about quailty than quantity...I'd rather have a shot at one of those cows than 20 football tuna anyday.
