The reality is that everyone is waiting for someone else to go south of the Vineyard and report back that they caught fish, but if you want to catch fish, you have to burn a little gas. Doug Asselin had group come in and they went south of the island, but after finding no bait and no sign of tuna or other fish, they elected to go sharking the next day.
Veatch and Atlantis are the two canyons where folks have caught bigeye, yellowfin, white marlin, blue marlin, and mahi. The action is by no means off the chart, but there is good water showing on the charts.
Any bluefin that are being caught east and south have come after a long, long ride – and they are, apparently, small fish.
