March 22 Offshore Report

Most of the boats headed up to the east to catch bluefins, but we headed down the beach in search of yellowfins.

They said that the bluefin fishing was pretty much a "no brainer", but since you can only keep one, my group was fine with rolling the dice, and looking elsewhere for something different. We never had a yellowfin bite, but the amberjacks were plenty thick, so we let everybody catch a couple on the verticle jigs before continuing our search. We caught a couple of king mackerels as well, before we headed out in the deep. I had hoped to run across a random school of yellowfins out there, and we did find some birds in one area, but no bites. Before throwing in the towel, we made a couple of deep drops and snagged a couple of groupers and a couple of tilefish.
