We fished 5 miles SE of the 371 today with the fleet. Water temp was 63 degrees. Great day on the water with the kids. Managed 4 bluefin 40-70 lb. 30 lb line made it work ( 1-2 hours)
but got the job done for 3 on the fly line and 1 on 50 lb with the sinker. Slow pick all day with a boat here and there hooked up. Most fish metered 50-175 ft down. Live and cut chum helped and their bellies were full of of the cut chum and whole deans. We could see them come up from the deep to eat on the meter. Not much surface activity with only a few random boils on the chum throughout the day.
Happy Father’s Day

    I really appreciate the dope about finding the chunks in their belly.
    For us skiff guys that don't haul (or want to buy) 3 scoops of bait, that's great news that they do seem attracted to chunk.
