    Looks like the bigger bluefin have finally departed. The fact that anything is still biting this far into December is amazing!
    Late-morning report from TODAY.

    The Pacific Queen called in with limits of Bluefin (15-25#), 4 Yellowfin tuna (50#) and are now focusing on the Yellowfin.

    The Liberty returned this AM with LIMITS of Bluefin Tuna (18) for 9 anglers! The fish grade are between 15 and 25 pounds.

    Went out yesterday on the Legend out of San Diego a 1 1/2 trip, Great weather We fished on the Anchor early morning caught a few on the flat fall, then it went to all bait fishing. The keys to catching fish were 20lb. Test, size 4 owner circle hook, and a very lively bait. Later in the day another boat gave us some live squid and it was game-on, flylining live squid and very long soaks! I will say this We say some Huge Foamers of Bluefin. A private boat could of easily casted a poppers and I feel had a Great chance of hooking up.
