fish dope was the start of the non share era... but for a good reason..
still a lot of good info here...
fisherman who charter , most do not share , and it's understandable.
we are very lucky to have all the fish so close to home...
also if you post numbers , you will have a 100 boats pushing down the fish..
there is still plenty of great info on this board.
most good fisherman know the general vicinity of the fish.
just knowing fisherman are catching fish and not getting skunked is good indicator...
most time numbers are a day old and the fish have moved..
some some positive thoughts..

Don't worry about the parasites

Good to hear on April 8th you encountered 35-45lb bft up top on the surface and saw big volume. Also great to hear you saw some bigger units and that the fish ate live bait

Nice to have good weather in early April

Thanks for the report. Going to be a good year up there. Got two 3 days coming up. This gets me pumped.

Yah the new arrivals burn allot of fat durring travel and will pack higher fat content as they settle in

Now go put someone on a fish of a lifetime who doesn't own a boat and posting a map afterwards is not necessary imo

Been a minute since ive been reporting here but everything is going well and ill be posting more.

Went out yesterday, April 8th, to go take a look around and found some bluefin tuna close to range. Ended up with a couple nice bluefin in that 30-45 pound range and saw some bigger models splashing around. Typical light line fishing style but nice to catch them on bait. From what I saw.....there was a very large volume.

Weather was beautiful and I saw a large volume of fish. Should be an interesting year. My first bluefin was from Jan 4/5th this year......so its definitely interesting so far!

I’m on the shogun from the 16-20th, hoping this is just a break in the action due to the weather and then they are back on again, hopefully!!! Hoping!!!! Shoot I can’t sleep!!!
BFT! I’m counting them!! Swimming thru a massive bait ball, shooting through actually... eating insanity, and then I get bit, I fight it for awhile and then see it’s a 15lb yellowtail... ahhhhh..LOL
