Trip Report

May 9 (2.5 day trip)

Good evening anglers,

We had a great afternoon, sliding on big breezers of this 40-60lb bluefin. They put on quite a show after lunch then dissapeared for a while. We found them again late and are getting a little opportunity on the flat falls. It’s a very good sign of this fish locally. Time to come fishing!

We have our limit for two days of fishing on a beautiful grade of bluefin and are heading home. We still have a few spots available for a few weekday 2.5 day offshore trips.
