This past summer, the Salty Cape crew and PhD researcher Willy Goldsmith headed south of Martha’s Vineyard to deploy satellite tags on spin-caught bluefin tuna as part of Willy’s research project for the Virginia Institute of Marine Science.
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.
