My wife, son and I took advantage of the Blue Fin tuna action this year.. a first for all of us. We went out on the Relentless with Capt Dave Waldrip. The fish were pushing baitfish everywhere just 1-2 miles from the beach. My 12 1/2 year old son Joseph hooke up 1st and manhandled a 45" 70lb fish! I was so proud! We all brought in one fish each and my wife can't stop talking about the fun she had on the trip! We could not get another past the 47" slot limit (can only take 1 from 27-47" and 2 from 47"- ?) I missed the slot by half and inch!
Can't wait to go again. Anyway here are the pictures on my son and wife with their tuna.
Sorry for the late reply. We were just a mile off of the Provincetown beach! The BFT were chasing bait all day on the surface. Looks like it will be steady through the next two months! My son and i are going again in August.
Your son needs to try some left coast Albacore then. They make wonderful steaks. Wife and I just like the bluefin raw. If you get more bluefin just hollar. I'll have about 100 lbs of fresh Albacore fillets over the next couple of months.
The local tackle shops report that the inshore BFT blitz stopped almost 2 weeks ago. We're hoping that this weekend's coastal storm is signaling a change in the weather pattern, and a return to the summer pattern will bring 'em back inshore.
I'll give it another shot next weekend... weather permitting.
