2012-02-12 - Giant Bluefin Tuna Trip - Hatteras, NC (350 Pounds!)

Bluefin Tuna TripsFirst Hatteras Bluefin of the Season!

Good news to report.  On our first of a month of scheduled Bluefin Tuna Trips, we connected with an estimated 350 pound fish.  The beauty was 80 inches long and caught by a women angler.  Nice job to all, making short work of the fish, releasing the trophy after a quick 35 minute battle.  We were fishing about 40 miles to the north of Hatteras Inlet, on LOW PROFILE, our 55' Custom Carolina Sportfish.  We will continue to run Bluefin Tuna Trips the rest of this month and into March.  This tuna trip produced one other bluefin bite, which didn't come tight and also saw a couple of nice yellowfin tuna come to gaff.

Tight Lines,

The OU Crew.
