More February Blues!

We headed up to the east to find some more bluefin today. We found something blue, but it wasn’t a tuna!

Conditions had changed considerably from the last day I fished, and the temperature break that held schools of tuna this weekend was no where to be found. I was the only boat looking for bluefin today, so it was a "needle in a haystack" situation for me with no help from a fleet. We never had a tuna bite, but had some excitement when a 250 pound blue marlin crashed a flatline bait. This fish put on a great show, with 20 or more jumps. Tony did a great job of angling the marlin to the boat, and my old friend Teddy wired and released him. Great fish guys. If your gonna catch "one" that’s the one to catch!
