With the final day of the Small Boat Tournament along with the MSSA Tunament, we had a lot of boats take advantage of the break in the weather and head out to the Poormans canyon.  The fishing seemed to slack off however with the fish seeming to be driven down due to the amount of boats out there.  With that said, it was still decent fishing starting with “C-Boys” returning with 2 yellowfin,  “Osprey” had 4 yellowfin and 5 dolphin,  “Fish Tricks” was able to mange to get 7 yellowfin and 1 dolphin,  “My Cin” came back with 4 yellowfin (released 15), 4 gaffer dolphin,  “Marli” returned with 2 yellowfin,  “Billfisher” hit the docks with 4 yellowfin,  “Boss Hogg” returned with 6 dolphin and 1 yellowfin,  “Three J’s” returned home with a mix of 1 wahoo caught by 8 year old Jace, 1 white marlin release and 1 dolphin!

Different day, same report…the tunas are snapping!!  The weather was a little snotty today with the wind blowing hard NE throughout the early morning but the boats that could get out had great success!  All of the action was again down in the Poormans with the boats still catching the majority of their yellowfin in the 40-50lb weight class.  “Pumpin Hard” had a mix of 10 yellowfin, 1 dolphin and 2 white marlin releases!  “Tighten Up” returned by 2pm with a boat full of 2 bigeyes, 13 yellowfin and 8 dolphin.  “Marli” only had 3 anglers but managed to wrangle in 14 yellowfin and 1 dolphin.  “Boss Hogg” put their charter on the meat returning with 17 yellowfin and 5 dolphin.  “Chasin Tail” had the rod bent as well hitting the docks with 3 yellowfin and 10 dolphin.

With the final day of the Small Boat Tournament along with the MSSA Tunament, we expect a lot of boats fishing tomorrow so stay tuned for their report!  If you are in the area make sure you stop by the docks to see all the action as well.
