    We left Green Harber, MA at 5:00 AM and encountered nasty weather.
    When we arrived at SWC( southwest corner) of Stellwagen Bank, we saw a dozen of whole and bird were working. It didn't take long to hook up a nice bft which turned out to be 61 incher ( about 140 lbs).
    Lots of birds were working for a while and some tuna were within 10 ft from the boat. 8* After catching/releasing another similar size, we left to Green Harbor by 11:00 am.
    When we got SWC, the water temp was 51.5 degree. Most bunkers left from the harbors and I don't know how long bft will stay there.

    With the water that cool and no bait, you can bet it won't be long.

    That looks like a Shibuki in the tunas mouth.

    I got skunked on 5 -6 trips to Cape Cod without him and I had tuna two trips in a row when he joined the trips. I should bring him with me whenever I go tuna fishing to Cape Cod. :)
