Saw a couple jumbos caught out of Monterrey, around the corner and south. Fish were said to have been caught off Pt Sur. Great looking water out by the 601 and outside of Monterrey canyon. Who’s looking?

    Coastside fishing club. Two fish caught on a charter 10 miles off pt sur. New info that a commercial boat put in 45 BFT just 35 miles from Monterrey. Back in 2015, there were plenty of BFT around until early November all the way up to bodega bay

    Hmm, wonder why Bayside didn't mention this on their reports. It would be great to get a fall tuna bite.

    The Coastside report say the fish were caught on the Pacifica. As far as I know the Pacifica is out of San Diego......I'm calling it a BS report until someone backs it up.

    After looking at the SST's last week I ran out to take a look..... (Starting from Santa Cruz) I went down to 40/40, then up to the 601.
    62-63 degree water, clean and deep blue. Tons of bait almost everywhere, a few whales, some dolphins........no Tuna for us. I pulled up on numerous bait boils throughout the day and threw/dropped iron but no luck. I was actually surprised at how many times I saw bait boiling the surface, and how large some of those boils were. More than I have seen before.
    Trolled slow, trolled fast, trolled in tight, trolled way way back, trolled in circles, trolled everything in the box.
    Was a beautiful day on the water though.
    Saw a couple jumbos caught out of Monterrey, around the corner and south. Fish were said to have been caught off Pt Sur. Great looking water out by the 601 and outside of Monterrey canyon. Who’s looking?

    Jmsportfishing from Monterey check their instagram

    I looked at their instagram and I don't see anything there...? I looked at their website and there was nothing on their fish counts. I don't even know of a boat in the Monterey area by the name of Pacifica. I thought that was a San Diego boat...

    This whole thing sounds fishy.

    A deckhand posted the pics,, It's for real, no fishy business lol.. Think they went back out the next day and got more, but not sure how many. JMSportfishing in Monterey has a boat named the Pacifica.

    Why are there no pictures on their instagram or website? Why is there nothing in their fish counts about it? I see in their link here https://jmsportfishing.com/about/ that they were working to add a third boat to the fleet... being the Pacifica.

    I want to believe this, but seems like they would be making a move to get more people out there for bluefin in their own backyard if they were getting them like you say they were.

    Yea, I agree, you’d think they’d be posting the hell out of it everywhere. But, that kid that works in the rig has been around here for a long time. I get the skepticism, but it’s not bs. Monterey is a small place and I don’t think anyone could get away with a stunt like that lol especially bring one of the only 2 party boats in the harbor.

    Just an fyi.. I called j&m receptionist several days ago.. She verified and confirmed the landing of 2 BFT for last week. Pacifica is a whale watching boat and rarely does fishing. My guess is they spotted some jumpers while whale watching. They either started trolling for them or came back out after dropping customers off. Just my guess!!

    Or this is a old photo to get interest, don't think pacifica can charter fishing trips and all these trips seem to be private. Even after the Instagram they would take name for possible trip. ???? who does that.
    He landed those fish when and where that is another mystery. No other sightings of BF for a couple months here. when they were here mutible sightings every day from myself and other fishermen.
    I may be wrong but just strange report all I am saying and my opinion. Like it to be true.
    I also went out 2 days ago and trolled 25 miles to big sur, no tuna, no radio chatter
