Matador Charters Fishing Report

BIG yellowfins

Sunday July 01st 2012 - 15:00 AM EST
Added by: Jake Hiles

On monday we fished offshore again and found very slow conditions. Some days the fishing is just better than others and this particular day the fishing was a bit off. We were lucky enough to hook a double of very large yellowfins as we were setting our gear out. These were 65- 70 pound class yellowfins and we had them boxed with a half hour of setting out lines. We fished around the area from the 200 line to the 100 where in 50-75 fathoms tunas were airng out but not eating trolled baits. Several boats worked the area very hard and there very few bites. We did manage one more fish at about noon, but it was very tough fishing. We finished off on the ten fathom hump where we did have a fish swirl on a bait and did not hook up. We also had a very brief encounter with a blue marlin there and no hook up. We only caught three tuna this day but I feel very lucky to have those and they were very nice sized tunas as well.
