Again…tuna, tuna, tuna. And as before, bluefish outside in deeper water, such as the b-buoy, off Nantasket, etc. During the high daylight hours, you may need to think about getting deep to get them (as in 30′ deep).
Mendy had this report:
Ran out of Boston this morning with John Rice. Left the dock at 5 and were tied back up by 9. Based on the spotty reports from the weekend we didnt have high hopes. After a longish run, we hit our spot and were immediately treated to a great whale show. Looked a bit longer and while searching at headway speed, we had a pod blow up off the port bow. One cast into them and I was tight. Fish came to the gaff in just over 10 minutes and was hooked less than 6 miles from shore. Not a ton of fish out there (we only saw a couple pods) and we got lucky today. First tuna landed in my boat this year.
Note the bait. I had been seeing some peanuts but clearly the tin I tossed today really matched the hatch!
