Matador Charters Fishing Report

More great sharks, albacores and blues too NEARSHORE

Today our group was from Missouri. They didn’t want to fish close to the beach but didn’t want to get up at 4am and go tuna fishing, so we decided on a near shore trip. The plan was to mix it up with trolling for blues and albacores and to go sharking for a while. We started out at the hot dog and trolled around for a while and caught some bluefish and an albacore or two. We set up for sharking and within an hour we had a bite from a nice spinner. Spinners are good fighters and very good tablefare, so after a 20 minute battle, we put it on the gaff and in the boat. While we were messing with the spinner and getting the boat straightened out, we had another shark rod get bit and a few minutes later we released a nice 6 foot long mako shark. We pulled the chum and the shark baits in and started trolling west and continued picking away at the blues and albacores and came in with a nice catch for the day.
