We hit Shelter Island Saturday morning at 5:15am. We got inline at the bait receiver had about 30 boats ahead of us. The guys on the reciever were working hard serving both sides of the receiver. It went a lot quicker than we thought. Tyler was able to put about a half dozen macks while we waited in line. They came in very handy later. The bait was mix of mostly chovies and deans. We headed to the 43 along the way we saw birds working on bluefin on the surface. We tried bait and wait and tried trolling the schools with no-luck. It is so frustraiting to see these fish and not get to eat. I have yet to catch a bluefin, SOME DAY I will catch you evil Tuna! We came across a garage door paddy with a diver on it. We stopped to watch them spear one and they invited us to fish the paddy. Tyler was able to get one to eat a bait about 10 pounds, We named the cute little "Tonights dinner". Later we were trolling and spotted some fish on the surface we stopped trolling and chummed with some yellowfin dark meat. When we are cleaning tuna I save that dark meat most people throw away to use for chum. The Dorado started feeding and jumping all around us. Tyler and I both tossed a live mack in the middle of the frenzy and were both hooked right away. Tyler's dorado was his personal best and my biggest in US waters. Tyler's weighed out a 20 pounds and mine maxed out the 25 pound scale. Could not get Nate hooked up so we started trolling again. Spotted a small paddy and decided it was so small that we would not stop and continued past it. About 200 yards off the paddy we hooked up and had Nate tackle his fist tuna. Here is a video of his first tuna Did not get back home to Temecula till 7:30 pm dog ass tired. Another fantastic day spent with my Son. After all no one ever said I wish I worked more on their death bed. My plan is to spend every chance I can with family and friends.
