    I'd come jig with you if my foot wasn't still banged up. Got about 3 more weeks.

    Are you talking about Lumy Bottom or 26 Mile Hill ?
    If so, good bites are going on now. I got a report that 185 lbs bluefin was caught on a hammered diamond jig off Cape May, NJ today.

    I've got a stupid question about all this bluefin fishing going on up East. Are the tuna spread along the shoreline form NY to Virginia's?
    When do the tuna go into deep water?

    They're spread from Virginia to southern New Jersey along the 20-30 fathom lines (roughly 40-50 miles), then again along Rhode Island and Massachusetts, this time closer inshore. They stick around through the fall.

    ksong 26 mile hill was first in my thoughts leaving from Rudee inlet, Virginia Beach.

    I try to fish every weekend and sometimes during the week Wx depending of course. Just to be clear, I am not a charter captain, simply a very dedicated recreational fisherman, I felt the term "offered" didn't apply.

    If you are all about offshore fishing or fishing in general for that matter call me we will chat and perhaps head out to the blue.
