Do you think running the generator while chunking night has a negative impact on the tuna biting?

Don't sweat the genny.

Tuna have to eat consistently every day, 365 days a year or they will die. To think they won't eat chunks until the "chunk bite turns on" is absurd. Find the bait (hence the tuna), chunk & you will catch them.

When boats are chunking in a certain area consistently, the sheer amount of bait being thrown can & will hold fish in that particular area. This is the most likely the reason for the "chunk bite" phenomenon that occurs toward the end of August. Overnight in any of the traditional chuking grounds & you'll see it for yourself. But tuna can & will take bait any time of the year. You just need to find them first...
