    Gentlemen here it is!

    Left shelter Island 600AM
    No wind.
    1-2 ft swells.
    decent ride out 20 knots.
    4 miles North of the 371 finally located a paddy produced one rat yellow.
    located paddy # 2 at 2 miles north of 371 picked up 1 more.

    could not find another paddy for the life of me.

    Ran everywhere about 200PM.
    exactly on the 302 saw the rush...
    birds crashing everywhere ran over and found the BFT. crashing the water awesome site to see.
    have not seen that beauty for a while now.
    set up cedar plugs and jet heads, while the party was on.
    Clearly visible 40 to 60 pounders everywhere. AWESOME.
    switched to trolling the horse dines around the foam.
    About 50 by 50 wide.
    finally landed in the middle of the battle and bammm.
    two 25 lb. fluro carbon leader snap almost instantly.

    Sad to say we could not get another fricken bite going.

    Chased them around frantically for NOTHING.

    swells stayed at 2 to 3 ft. very calm 5 to 10 winds or less.
    Hope to see someone get them. Still can not sleep from the vision of all that TUNA and
    nothing of them on the boat.
    Water Temps. 68 to 69.8 all that area water perfect to say the least.
    Strong lack of paddies.

    Some please go get them, I cant stand it.

    Good luck out there!
    Cant wait to see some good intel>

    Only thing worse than chasing radio fish is chasing damn internet fish. :-)) ... kidding.

    Thanks for the heads up. Still have fingers crossed for a good Oct bite. Always good to hear fish are still popping this far up the line. Looks like a storm brewing off Baja may travel North and bring one last blast of warm water.

    Wishful thinking here.

    Tough one.
    Why the 25lb for 40 60 lbers? Is that all they would even try to touch?
