There has been some action reported on sharks and yellowfin south of the Vineyard, but no sign of the school bluefin tuna bite.
According to Kevin Gould who fished in last weekend’s Tuna Fest, there were four bluefin caught, all of them on Friday out east, with three weighed in. They can be tough to capture when they first show up for the season, but as more anglers get out there and try their luck, patterns will emerge.
On November 1st, Capt. Mike and John Burns headed out from Sandwich Marina to chase reports of aggressive schools of bluefin tuna feeding on small butterfish, a great opportunity to catch 100+ pound fish on topwater spinning gear. Armed with Stella 14000Ws and Hogy Pro Tails, the crew aboard the Relentless have no problem finding, hooking up with and successfully landing large bluefin.
