Private Charter August 10-14 (3.5 day) trip

August 12th, 2020|Capt Art's Blog, Trip Reports|

Good morning anglers,

After catching limits of bluefin tuna yesterday, the catching is much tougher this morning. We are still seeing signs in the bluefin tuna zone, it’s just harder to get a bite. We’re hoping it’s a time of day thing, and we’ll be ready for the afternoon.
