Fished a private charter on the Big E Thursday and Friday October 11 & 12. Thursday we fished our way to Gunnison and caught a mixed bag of Red Snapper, a couple of AJ's, scamp and Warsaw Grouper.

Thursday night we had unlimited Blackfin action along with the occasional hook up with a Yellowfin. The topwater bite for YF never happened. We ended up with 8 YF and several more lost boatside. All the YF came on chunks. We ended the trip with a two day limit of Red Snapper for everyone, lots of Blackfin, 2 Warsaw, 2 AJ's, 6 or so scamp, and 8 YF.

I did not take as many pics as I should have, but here are a couple. This is the big Warsaw of the trip at 80lbs and a dock shot of the YF and 2 Warsaw.



my turn next. i hope that we see the tuna and have a wide open bite like the last several years at this time. glad to see that at least a few yellowfins were caught. when we went to boomvang and nansen 2 weeks ago there only a few small yellowfins mixed in with the blackfins. with all the venice action there should be tuna to the east....rick

I wonder how well -and if- the Big E's YFT bite is going right now?

I know at least 2 people on that trip will be taking pics!

Richard, Scott and Jerry went. I'm not sure if Tom went too but one of them should have some pics and a report.
