Monday’s report had the BFT going crazy at the 9 mi bank. We decided to head out and start looking above the 9 mile ridge. We marked...

    Bluefin

    My buddies and I went offshore on 4-18 to find BFT. We found big schools of BFT over 100 lbs. We lost two big models at the boat right at gaff but we were able to get some fish in the box.

    b.f.t.???

    We were able to find several bird schools over in the 182 area. A few hooks but only yielded one for the box. Took out some new people and Daryl hooked up his first BFT. This season should be epic and it is already starting off well.

    10/22 San Salvador-East Butterfly

    Yesterday was slow. We worked from the San Salvador Knoll to the E Butterfly to the W Butterfly and worked backed south for nada. We heard about one bull hook up on the troll at the E Butterfly. The fellow was working the same zone as us. Heard the fishing was extremely slow with only a few...

    The guy in the apron is my neighbor. It was his first offshore experience. He finally got the hang of fishing and got his limits of dodos and scored a couple of tuna. We lost a lot of tuna and he had one that had him bendo. We re-grouped and continued to fish. I gave our coordinates over the...

    Fantastic day on the water! Background behind the video, after setting up on "the magic paddy" My buddy hooks up to this nice dorado -- 5min later, he works the fish around the boat to avoid tangling on another paddy we pass by. He missteps and falls in the water. He hands me the rod and the...

    Nice tuna drift off the 371

    Everyone was working really hard. The guy in the white shirt never fished offshore and wanted to practice gaffing. He ended up pulling in 2 yft and god knows how many rat yellowtail. Always an adventure out there. We started our trip and fished the 302 for only rat yellows. The 302/226 area...

    Holy smokes Batman ! Is that a Wahoo at the 302?

    the first picture wasn't even posted by the fisherman who caught it. Regardless, it has been a remarkable season and it will go down as one of the best seasons in the past 30 years.
