Cape Cod Tuna Trip

Headed up to cape to fish on the 80 ft viking "On the Edge". Headed out Sunday morning for what would be an absolutely epic bite. Non stop bites on a down rigged Joe Shute and Ballyhoo combo. Started to morning off with a fat under, and a few minutes after landing that fish we boated a beautiful 71" fish. Got the baits back in the water and got back on the troll, 10 minutes later we had a 130 with line screaming off the spool. Fought the fish for about 20 minutes and got a good look at what is estimated to be about a 90" fish. Released the giant and kept on trolling. Another 15 minutes pass and had another one on. This continued all morning, ended up releasing another giant, broke two off halfway through the fight and had one spit the hook. Had tuna airing out all over and whales breaching. Absolutely blessed to have been on a trip like this. The strength and power of these fish are unmatched. I’ll be back !

Fresh Bluefin Tuna Poke

A good friend of mine Andrew gave me this recipe. Came out amazing! IMG_3636.jpg

Ingredients:

As much fresh tuna as you plan to eat (sushi grade is this will be consumed raw)
Soy Sauce
Oyster Sauce
Sesame Oil
Green Onion
Sesame Seeds

Directions:

Start out by cubing the tuna into whatever size pieces you like. I did about 1/4 – 1/2 inch pieces. Place your cubes in a bowl. Coat tuna cubes with just enough soy sauce to coat all of them. Don’t over do it. Add a few drizzles of sesame oil (this stuff is strong) to taste. Mix up everything. Next up add a dab of the oyster sauce – this is to add a bit of sweetness and thicken up the soy sauce mix again. Cover the tuna and put in the fridge to marinade for about an hour.

Prepare some white rice. Top the rice with the tuna mixture and add green onions for color and flavor. Garnish with sesame seeds and enjoy!
