The Tuna Bite out East.

72 inch It’s June and the tuna fishing has been pretty good. Bigger fish means they don’t bite all the time. The average fish that is being caught is 65 inches to 90 inches. The troll bite has been up and down with many fish being caught one day and next to nothing the next day. You just have to keep fishing and wait your turn. It would seem that the Keywest Special, the Ghost, the Widowmaker, and the Red Iguana splash bars have been the hot colors so far this year for us on both boats. We got this 72.9 incher on Tuesday on the Ghost and missed another fish on the Red Iguana. The bite has ranged from 65 ft out to 160 feet and sometimes it’s happening for miles. The whales and the bait have been nothing short of epic and when the fish are on the feed and you are on the fish you get the bites!!! We will be out there tomorrow and we will be fishing the Hyannis Tuna Fest this Friday and Saturday. With the full moon on Sunday and 60 plus boats fishing Friday and Saturday this might be the weekend to go bass fishing, if you know what I mean. We should see another slug of tuna coming in with the full moon so next week we should see more fish and a better bite. Remember, it’s only June and the best tuna fishing is yet to come. All in all it’s been a good month so far and the fish have been the bigger June type fish that we normally see. We have open dates so please give us a call if you want to go fishing with us. 508-240-0778 is the shop’s number. We are open 8am to 6pm. Good luck and tight lines. Capt. Eric
