Have the harpooners even gotten out yet? Weather hasn’t exactly been superb
Thanks for the intel Jason; where were you tuna wishing?
Was out there Friday night through yesterday. One other boat, no herring, didn't mark anything.
For the new york guys Sounded like fish around the Texas tower Bacardi
First light bite
On way home from carteret took a look. Action on YF out in the deep to the east Of the carteret and middle toms
It will happen soon...
Running back from groundfishing yesterday afternoon and 5 miles off the beach the water blows up around us with 1/2 dozen YUGE knuckles, must have run up on a school just under the surface. 2 miles after that see some more pushing water then start jumping on macks, looked like school sized fish but had some fairly decent marks down deep at the same time.
If it wasn't my boy's 2nd bday, would have been turning and burning at the dock, loaded with heavy artillery. Now just gotta convince this afternoons striper trip we should be chasing Charlie out the cool breeze rather than tossing macks against the hot shoreline....
They do exist
Nice, be fore warned Jefferies is loaded with doggies right now from tip to curl. They were following the haddock right up to the transom today. Might want explore inshore options for a few days.
I will confirm the Dogfish! Spent the night on north jefferies. 3am I got into serious bait around the boat. Mackerel, Herring and squid. First baits I put out at daybreak I got 3 30+ inch pollock. After that it was dogfish. I packed up and moved around going south, the fingers to the curl were schools of dogfish.
They are everywhere right now...all over Stellwagen as well.
Went to the canyons looking for yft and bigeye yesterday and ended up hooking 2 Giants landing one on a black/purple jet head in 2000ft of water. Weird year
Had the afternoon free & 2 tides, so scratched together a crew and hit an inside bump. Looked fishy. Though instead of doggies chomping our baits; we had squid attacks. Thats less than an hour soak on the 22 & 26 fathom macks.
After the 10-15kt forecast built to a brisk 30kt summer breeze and anchor started dragging, we chalked it up to a shake down cruise and headed her west.
There are around. Just got sent some porn from a buddy overnighting inside.
Not exactly the motivation I need to get thru my 7th mid to noon shift.
Was wondering what why you burn the belly of the mackerel? I’ve never seen that before.
That was the down side of having a school of Squid in the neighborhood.
I love my wife and kids but...
Ill see you sunday when i get in.
Catch a Fat one !!
