3 Day TNT LTD Sept 10-Sept 13
Capt Carl reports a great start to the 2015 Tuna Season. Our first trip was a TNT and we enjoyed some solid tile fishing the first day while the weather let us. We had a lot of Golden Tile, Cod, Pollack, Hake, and even a few Blue Line Tiles. After a couple of solid hours, the wind came up making for tough conditions, so we anchored up for the night. At 9pm we had our first two bites, which ended up both being keeper swordfish that we landed! For the next 2 hours we had quite a few bites and landed more keeper swordfish, released a few pup swords, and broke a few big ones off. Eventually that shut down and that was it for the night. As the sun came up, the wind dropped down and we enjoyed another excellent half day of bottom fishing with a lot more Golden Tiles, Pollack, Cod, and Hake. At around noon, we went in search of some tuna. On the way, we trolled up and released a beautiful White Marlin. We continued traveling a long distance, and found some tuna to work on out in the deep water, however, after catching 2 yellowfin, the wind came up hard and we couldn’t drift anymore, so we anchored up in some shallower water but didn’t catch anything. Before sun up, the wind died down enough, so we picked up the anchor and went back on the drift and started catching more Yellowfin Tunas! We had a fair amount onboard, but mostly smaller size fish. We also caught a bunch of Mahi Mahi throughout the trip. Eventually it was time to go home and we ended up with a nice trip with great people… And many people catching their first ever Tilefish AND Tunas! Dung Nguyen from Fairfax, VA took the tuna pool with a 50 lb Yellowfin… Bob Gregson from Newtown, CT took the edible pool with his 75 lb Swordfish… And Pete Ferguson from Hicksville, NY took the Tilefish pool with a 28 pounder.
