One spot opened up on our 2 Day Big Bluefin Tuna Charter aboard the 80' THUNDERBIRD out of Newport Beach. Come fish with a great group of people, we all have the same goal to catch our personal best bluefin tuna. If you haven't fished the balloon and flying fish rig this is a good trip to learn on.

Trip # 3 Departing Sunday, June 7 at 9 PM fishing the eighth and ninth returning at 8 PM . Ultra limited load only 16 anglers ! ( Yes that includes me) 795 per Angler

Payment , personal check, cashiers check, Venmo, cash , Pay pal.
On all trips, fish cleaning ,food and crew tip (typically $100 ) is extra.

A few sporty’s that shall go unnamed were WACKING yellowfin and big bluefin a few days ago in that zone, saw it with my own eyes. Of course they aren’t going to report it though. If that weather magically turns for the better you’re in for a trip
Can I fish the popper? Or was it straight bait?

Looks like Thunderbird will be fishing out there by themselves with no other sporties. New Lo Ann cancelled on the 7th. Good luck my friend. Hopefully y’all slay em!!!

Yeah I'd hop on that trip too if it wasn't for the weather forecast being so brutal Sunday & Monday. The ride home Tuesday looks much better, but Captain Jeff won't hesitate not to allow fishing especially at night if he's got 30+ knots of wind and close interval 8-10' seas. The bait will get beaten up as well but if it doesn't blow as hard and things cab settle down quicker than forecast there could be a nice window of opportunity albeit short with the long run home.

I suspect plan B could be fishing SCI so they can duck for cover on the backside of the island IF the Navy has that area open....I'll live vicariously through the online reports on this one!

Well Steve you’re absolutely wrong about all of that and the weather report is 17 kt on Monday perfect for us flying five balloons and 2-6

Jeff I hope I am 💯 wrong and Mother Nature can make up her on mind, but what I’m seeing (and I’ve been forecasting marine weather for 26 years) looks like a bit more breeze than that. Best of luck to you and safe travels to you and your crew.
