More Bluefins

Today was another picture perfect day.

There was a lot of boat traffic, and I didn’t think the fish bit as well as they did yesterday. We trolled for the morning and caught five fish, but we were holding out for a bigger one to kill. The ones we caught trolling were 100 pounders, one was maybe 120. In the afternoon we found several schools of 50-70 pounders rolling and busting, so it was a perfect opportunity to throw some jigs at ’em. I think we probably caught another eight or ten on the light tackle, including one on a topwater popper. My guys all did a great job angling these fish, and this size fish was a perfect match for the gear. Lotta fun! Thanks guys!
