Chris is right, I have landed some bluefin. They ranged from 40 - 250 lbs and were caught on spinning and conventional gear. Nothing on the fly.

I have caught blackfin to 35 lbs and albies into the low 20's on a 10wt from a drifting boat. I think I could handle a football bluefin 50 lbs and under on a 10 wt but maybe not. I sure would like to find out.

I don't think the inshore fish Chris is talking about were much more than 20-25 lbs if I remember correctly.

Fished, actually rode around and looked Tuesday at day break from the Wall to past the first breachway. Tons and tons of small bait nothing on them.

Love it! Only FFNE has "boots on the ground" reporting on the arrival of our favorite salt water quarry. Please keep doing this, joebe.

I tried looking for that recently at one of those million choices of beers type taverns--- all they had was the big eye tuna.  I tried it and it was horrible. I actually think it was half skunked.

Yeah, this stuff should be called Cod because it is so bland, it's not good but it's not bad either.

Like father like son! Late afternoon trip today. My 12 year old brought a bonito to the base of the rocks and as I was scooting down to land it the lure popped out.  :blink
