We had a couple boats running out for normal charters today and it seems like the Bluefin bite is picking up along with finding some nice yellowfins! The “My Cin” stayed inshore to the Jackspot and caught a mix of bluefish & bonitas along with releasing a 250lb Tiger Shark. “C-Boys” picked up 2 Bluefin, 1 yellowfin, 1 dolphin and a cobia in the Parking Lot. “Buckshot” picked up there limit of Bluefin’s then ran out to the Poormans and caught 2 yellowfins! The “Zipper” had a terrific day catching 3 yellowfin, a mako shark, 2 dolphin, 1 White Marlin and 1 Blue Marlin release in the Hambone! In the Hot Dog the “Pumpin Hard” also picked up 2 Bluefin, 1 yellowfin and 3 dolphin. The “Boss Hogg” ventured to the Lumpy Bottom and returned with 1 Bluefin, 3 yellowfin and a boat load of Sea Bass and Blueline Tilefish. “Marli” was right behind them and had a great charter day returning with their limit of 3 Bluefin, 7 yellowfin and 2 dolphin!
