Tuna No-show

Once again, where are the fish? Logged about 40 miles today ...round trip and trolling out at the shipping lanes between the BC bouy and the regal sword...left 4:30 and back by 1:30....Nothing.... just whales around. Was out with my neighbor on TINUS with 5 rods out...radio chatter confirmed the day as did conversation with the guys back at Ryders Cove. Ken, my neighbor also chatted with capt. Stewart. Patchy fog and I stayed at the helm most of the time driving out and trolling, watching the radar screen and my GPS coordinates...no close calls luckily. Took a cat nap on the deck and my son did catch a nice big , maybe over 35 inches, Blue when we stopped about 5 miles out to cast to rising fish while coming back in. Will try again next week. Did not even put my 14 weight together just in case. Nice day though.

I've heard second-hand news of some people out of Green Harbor finding them, also when I worked in Maine on the USS Arleigh Burke project my BIW chunker buddies had good numbers up their way this time of year. Primarily giants they sold to "the Moonies" as they referred to their customers.

Yes, It appears that you need to make the long run to the canyons as another neighbor did with his father with Terry N. this past weekend. These conditions have happened before but it is quite a difference compared to the beginning of the season.

Is this the "Trolling Forum"?
I didn't think non-flyfishermen were good enough to post on this forum.
