IF you haven’t heard about the epic tuna bite, you may be living under a rock. The Tuna fishing today was incredible, with almost every boat returning with their limit (3 per angler, resulting in roughly 17-20 per boat). As per the report from Sunset Marina (See the full report below), the hot spots appear to be ranging from the Poor Mans to the Washington to the Baltimore Canyons. Basically, if you’re looking for tuna, head offshore and reap the prize. Our store is open early and closes late to serve you, so come by and stock up with the latest offshore gear before heading out on your next trip!
FROM SUNSET MARINA
“TUNAS, TUNAS, TUNAS! If you stopped by the docks today it would have been impossible to miss with well over 190 Tunas being brought back to the dock. This report only covers C and D dock boats with a few additional reporting in, which means there are plenty more Tunas that could be added to that number.
Fishing the Baltimore was the Marli, Osprey, Espadon, and Pumpin Hard, who all limited out on Tunas for the day (Marli: 18 Yellowfin and releasing several more, Osprey: 18 and 6 Dolphin; Espadon: 12 Yellowfin, 1 Bluefin, and 1 White Release; and Pumpin Hard with 17 Yellowfin and 1 Dolphin). The Tighten Up and Grande Pez fished the Washington with another great day of fishing (Tighten Up: 12 Yellowfin, 1 Dolphin, 1 Tiger Shark, and 1 White Release; Grande Pez: 18 Yellowfin, 5 Dolphin). The Poorman’s was another hot spot for the day, with the C-Boys (22 Yellowfin), Boss Hogg (18 Yellowfin and 3 Dolphin), White Lightning (11 Yellowfin), Fish Tricks (18 Yellowfin, caught 25 total), and the Reel Chaos (10 Yellowfin and 3 Dolphin) all maxing out on Tunas for the day. Fishing the 800 fathom line was the “Three J’s”, who returned with 10 Yellowfin and 1 Dolphin.
That’s one heck of a report for a Friday, leaving the fleet itching to fish first thing tomorrow morning. Check in with us tomorrow for the latest!”
