Well on Saturday 7/11 I had Jeff and Tulay out for a day of bluefin hunting .. Game plan was to run way south out of SRI to find some life..I got down to were I wanted to find some life to only find a lifeless ocean .. Radio chatter was not encouraging at all .. Startied running to some tight structure and pulled up on a few over bluefin finning themselves .. No love at all, then the flat line clip pops and bam we are on.. Only problem was a jumbo Mahi instead of a bluefin but it's a ice breaker..
Started working the area again have 2 clips pop but nothing came tight.. Picked up and made a huge move about 71 miles and found the mother load of fish... Put the spread out and a sterling bar gets hammered hard ..this fish burned across the spread cutting off 2 bars and a Shute .. So after 2hrs of fighting this fish we see color and that color was huge!! As I was hand lining the leader up we have a giant on! Fish sound again another 45 Min I get the fish 10ft down and it comes in down .. Heartbroken for sure .. We quickly found that school again and I reset the spread fast .. . Bam were tight 25 mins boat a 52" fish .. We made a few more shoots and boat 3 more overs ... We spent 4 hrs chasing schools of fish that wouldn't eat .. Having fish from schoolies to Giants under the boat was incredible .. To find schools of fish from 100lbs to some fish easily over 300lbs is something I will never for get.. I went back through the the area Tuesday and it was a ghost town .. One thing I'm noticing is the lack of mammals, bait and overall life on the ocean.. Enjoy the pic heavy post, thanks to sterling tackle once again .. I'll be ordering tomorrow!
