More info on this tuna?
Was it from off VA or somewhere more northerly? I looked at doing a bluefin trip trip out of Boston area [years before the popular TV show depicting the fleet there] but was astounded at having to pay for the boat/captain/mates and still having to give the entire fish to the boat. I understand the reasoning but with zero leeway, I declined to pursue booking any of the trips. Still an interesting fishery....
This was a Big Eye tuna. Caught in 2002. 237 pounds. It was a charter boat out of Va. Beach, but we were out for Yellowfin. Took about 90 minutes to get it to the boat and then another hour so to get him back to the boat after they missed him with the Gaff. I was sore for days.
Not sure what the cost was. I was lucky enough to be the guest of friends who do way better than my teacher salary.
Tough spot to get to; good grade of fish though!
Put a new Lorwance depth finder on the little Lund and replaced the mucked up aerator. While I was at it added a power/ usb port with fused switch up front.
cool fishing. I'm also going to fishing this weekend. This season I changed equipment https://marinewaze.com/ and I want to check it in action
Gotta get back out there
meh...last summer in Alaska
ummm..get that sockeye in the boat !!
a few in May in the gulf
some red snapper
some yellow fin tuna too
was in the Upper pennisula for brookies last week. one of my spots.
That’s a beauty. La Jolla?
Verms are delicious. Tough spots are some of the most satisfying. One of my favorite spots on the north coast, probably fishable by kayak fir a total of 2 weeks out of the year.
A nice Snook caught in the Sea of Cortex, Baja Mexico. Caught using a lure in a mangrove area. I was on a kayak when I caught it.
La Jolla's a good guess. That was taken a bit south of there...
Cedros Island, off of Baja. There's nothing like kayak fishing, and hooking a pelagic fish strong enough to tow your boat on that first big run!
Sometimes it's uniquely rewarding to fish a spot that's usually inaccessible, where a little window opens up once in a while and it takes a savvy, patient, committed fisherman to make it happen.
Where (in general) were you fishing?
I love the idea of chasing snook in Baja. Or amberjack.
These are species that I associate with the Gulf Coast and Florida, but I'm mostly familiar with the Pacific side of things. Were you somewhere close to Muleje perhaps?
Cape mendocino. I’d say it’s the best rock fishing in California. Massive schools of blacks and blues busting the surface all around, massive lings and Verms. It was easier to jump on when conditions were right when I lived in arcata, but now that I’m in Santa Rosa I try to get there once or twice a season.
