    Bluefin tuna popping has been very good in Cape Cod Bay for a week.
    Amazing thing is the size of tuna caught on poppers. Most tuna are in 100 lbs + range now. One guy landed a bluefin estimated at 220 - 230 lbs (190 lbs dressed) on a popper yesterday. :eek:
    I got to go now. :) Does anyone want to join the bluefin popping from Texas tomorrow ? :)

    we have been seeing these fish in the bay for the last two weeks and yes they are big and hungry. They are feeding on schools of pogies right now and the action is hot. I have been lucky enough to land three and break off four this past week. All fish have been over the 100 pound mark and most of them have been right around 130 to 150. These are alot bigger than last years fish.
