It's been a little while since I have posted on here but we are still here in Westport catching tuna and being happy. This has been a strange year but the wind has changed direction, the warm water is moved in close and the game is on. We are seeing jumpers and birds and all the things we have become accustomed to over the last couple years.

Couple tips: this year the slide is the thing, if you hook up on the troll you have to get bait in right away, a swim bait or a good turn to drag your gear through the hook up side can produce also. When sliding in on jumpers give a little extra room, don't go crashing right into the patch. And once you loose one and go a round with no hookups get back on the troll, don't wast your time flogging a dead bait stop. This will get better over the next week.

There are fish here and they will eat. Pics or it didn't happen. Yes the same group went two days in a row. Notice the awesome water color. I love this game.

Nice job Kerry and good report. And you are right, once on the slide, bait has to go in very fast along with a live bait rod soaking. Hope to see ya out there this weekend!
