When waves of boats decide to head out in good wx, finding crew on short notice is tough. I can rarely plan more than a few days out because of work.

I feel for you. ;).

Sport fishing, stopped chartering years ago. Hard getting crew when the weather, moon and reports are all looking good at the same time, and at the last minute. Looking at Friday into Saturday now, and to the east.

Fished the Hudson yesturday. Very slow, had some nice tiles but no tuna. Water quality was great and 76 degrees but very little bait to be found. West of the 100 was covered with pilot whales and rays, it's going to turn on very soon in there IMO. Hopefully we get a good eyeball bite like last year. Tons of life in 30 fathoms on the way in but had no time to stop.

Eastern canyons

Has anyone fished or heard reports from the eastern canyons lately? Like Veatch, Hydro, welker etc?

Last report I saw from this week had hydro petty dead but the next canyon to the east alive (8 miles east, not ocean, one in between).

Take a look at the temperature charts (looked yesterday, not yet today), good water to the east. Heard a good, not great, report from someone that was there.

There's a nice temperature break right at the edge, which is always a good thing. On top of that, the weather report looks OK (for now). Throw a decent report into the mix and it's probably time to start making phone calls. The bad side, weekend traffic, every yahoo with a boat that floats will be there.

That is certainly true of the tails/dip/hudson but I've found that the further east you go, the fewer yahoos you see. There just aren't the same number of boats that come out of southern mass as there are coming from/around li and ri.

Returned today from a Hudson overnighter, first day and night was slow. Managed to put 4 bigeyes in the boat today up to 225lbs. Sat afternoon the bite was off the hook from what I heard, most boats in the square had between 1 and 6 eyes, we the high hook today. Not really sure where the yellowfin are though. I'll post up,a few pics tomorrow.

Just saw a boat from my harbor unloading about bunch (30 or so) yellowfin 70-80lbs cores. I know it's his secound trip in a week the first one was equally successful. My buddy saw them in lydonia using the green stick.....for what that's worth.
