awful lot of views and not a single positive response... it don't bode well for us. I personally haven't heard of any of my buds catching anything.

Thanks for sharing :D its nice to hear some good info, makes you want to get out there all the more. Seems like things have flipped over because earlier in the season it was the opposite..tuna were in close 3 to 5 miles offshore and further out towards the ledges was where we were encountering the dog fish. What were you using for bait? What do you figure the 77"er weighed? any guesstimate? Here is a good one for you guys....I won't mention the forum but it was not this one.....earlier in the season after MANY MANY days of fishing we came upon a decent area..... so I trying to be a good egg about things and figuring its a huge ocean answered a post like this one here and gave a NON-specific but general area to fish and man o' man did the scales fly. I had people telling/posting me...me who used fish for a living, that I was a S.O.B. who hung on others tails and "STOLE" their hard earned commercial fishing area and was blabbing it...WTF!!!!! I spent much $$$$ and countless hours of my experience and only gave a port to pull out of and a general direction to head.. not much more really and was treated like dirt, hence the reason for me coming in here and checking it-Down East Forum-out as I don't want to associate with guys who are that arrogant and self centered. I have my Federal & State Lic. and if I choose to share and help fellow fishermen out..especially guys who work all week and then want to take their kids out to get them interested in fishing instead of drugs & alcohol I figure it my info to share. Anyway sorry for the rant and thank you for sharing tunaorlater.

Yeah once the blue dogs start hitting your best off pulling up anchor and finding another spot
