The Spring Season has Taken Off!
It started early with Yellowtail at the Islands and just got better with the early spring catch of the season’s 1st Bluefin Tuna on the Top Gun 80 on May 3rd! Since then big Yellows continue to show and a HUGE body of Bluefin Tuna and Yellowfin Tuna have been found at 150 to 167 miles.
Top Gun 80 returned to the dock from a 2.5 day trip on Monday May 26th with LIMITS of Bluefin and 20 Yellowfin Tuna. Captain Bob Taft says it’s the largest body of tuna he has ever seen!
Most of the Bluefin are in the 30 to 60 pound range, the largest caught was 127 pounds. The largest Yellowfin weighed in at 52 pounds.
With this size fish it’s critical to be outfitted with the right tackle… Nothing less than 30 lb. test! Consider bringing 40 to 50 lb. set-ups.
