Was out today working some areas between the Bacardi and the tower. There was a lot of action in and around the area with quite a few boats doing real well about 7-8 miles to the East from what we heard. Find the temp break and the fish are there. we boated a 20lb Bluefin and lost 4 more (Short hits and break offs). We also got a 30lb Mako to the boat which we released. Highlight and lowlight was a 2 hour and 15 minute battle on 50lb class tackle with an estimated 250-300lb Bluefin which we lost at boat side when the 50lb Fluoro leader broke. What a heart break! Another boat in the area lost one of similar size after a 3 hour battle. Although we lost the big one AGAIN, it was nice to see fish that size out there. What an awesome powerful fish!
LADY K...Were you trolling when the big bluefin hit or chunking< If you were trolling what did it hit on. And if you were chunking were you anchored or drifting. Im fairly new at this and planning a trip within the next week.I appreciate any helpful tips thanks advance..Charlie
