2007-06-27 - Yellowfin Tuna Report - 15 today
Been a bit delinquint with reports...apologies. We fished about 10 days over the last week out of Ocean City Maryland, with mixed results. Clearly the bite was on earlier in the week but fizzled a bit by the end of the weekend. We fished mostly from the Baltimore to the Poormans, with the best of the action in about 70 fathoms. We got the tuna skunk on one trip, and caught 10 on our best. JUSTIFIED put 10 nice tuna in the boat on Friday, while THATS RIGHT caught half a dozen. most days we averaged 4-7 fish. The fish were either in the 25-35# range or were the larger variety going 50-70#. We had about equal numbers of each. Today PRETTY WORK was out on a Make Up Charter and got this week started off on a great note. With not nearly the boat traffic, this mid-week trip was a home run. Capt. John headed south of the poormans, towards the Washington, headed looking for a big-eye bite. Guess he liked what he saw before he got there, stopped in about 50 fathoms and it didn\'t take long. By 10am, there were 15 tuna in the boat and they were headed for the barn. The largest tuna was 72# on today\'s trip. He reported the water temps were around 68 degrees and the fish all ate ballyhoo/sea witch combinations. They had several mutliple hookups, with best of the bunch being a 6-8 slam. Both PRETTY WORK and THATS RIGHT are back out tomorrow and will be looking to pick up where they left off today.
