june18 offshore report BIG YELLOWFINS AND BLUEFINS

On monday we had Scott Chapmans group aboard for a day offshore. We had kind of a bumpy ride out but it settled out as soon as we began fishing. We set out at the 450 in 40 fathoms and immediately got beat up by the shearwaters. It was hard to keep a bait in the water because of the birds. We worked the area though and every now and again we would drive over some fish and get some bites. Right out of the gate, we caught three nice 50 pounds class yellowfins. We got whacked several more times and ended up catching 8 really nice class yellowfins in that general area. No rhyme or reason to it just every now and again we got bit. water was 70 degrees. Later in the afternoon we ran inside to try to find a bluefin. While we were setting the spread around the 960 we got hit by a gaffer. We caught him and put the spread back out. Soon after we spotted a school of bluefins cutting on top. We pulled over them and had several rods go down. We ended up keeping a 49 inch fish and packed it up and ran home.
