Fishing was absolutely crazy today….crazy good!  The offshore boats were in the canyons absolutely smoking the tuna and the inshore boats were all over the flounder and sea bass.  We even had sea bass, flounder and tuna caught on the same boat!

I got a crazy report from Wes Pollitt of the Morning Star with Captain Monty Hawkins today.  Wes reported a steady pick of sea bass, some good flounder fishing, and oh…..three bluefin tuna!!  The Morning Star has been doing some trolling on the way out, on the way home, and in between spots and catching some false albacore, but today they got bites from bluefin tuna.  The fish were in the 40-50 pound range and a more than welcome surprise for our friends that are usually all about the bottom fish.

For the fleet that normally does the trolling for tuna the fishing was even better offshore in the canyons.  John Picard and his crew from Woodbridge, Virginia had a great day on the charter boat MARLI with Captain Mark Hoos and mate Mark Stephens. They boxed 23 yellowfin tuna, pulled off a large bigeye tuna after a 20 minute battle and released over 2 dozen undersized yellowfin tuna.
