New York Fishing Reports

Sunset Tuna

Game plan was to head out later in the day and spend night chunking then morning jig for bluefin. Few miles short of grounds we see tuna chicks, whales and rays. Dropped jigs down and nothing. Were just about to pull lines in and head to the grounds when I hear screams of fish on from my son in the cockpit – 10 min later a fat 60 LB fish is on the deck. We drop the jigs down again and this time a double hookup. I get my 60 LB fish in and my son is saying his fish is giant. 20 minutes later we gaff his 60 inch 150 plus LB fish and can barely can lift it over the sides. Amazing fish! Very proud of him for landing that fish by himself. Limited out with 2 under’s and one over. Wanted to release my fish but the fish are just inhaling the jigs deep and was impossible to do so. Headed in very early and back at the dock at 10 pm. Sunset bite! .

Just an amazing trip and the fish are gorging on sand eels now. Sardine type jigs worked very well and we got them in the sane area as our last trip. Tons of life out there. Look for the tuba chicks and rays and you will connect.A Trip my son will never forget I’m sure.​
