The hot calm weather this week made for perfect fishing. A great time to run offshore and get into the bluefin tuna.
There’s nothing quite as fun as trying to write a fishing report in the heat of July. You’ll see the reports are kind of non-existent this week. So if you’re on the water, share a little intel, and email me.

Long Island and Montauk
