Probably one of the best bluefin tuna fishing days of all time!
We saw decent signs of bluefin. There weren’t many surface signs but we were able to mark the few we saw around 150’. We hooked one off a flat fall rigged with heavier hooks and leader. We haven’t gotten a weight, but we based it off the one we hooked and landed and they have to be bigger fish. We were very glad we had the heavier tackle this time around…

On the weekend of Jan. 2 and 3, a couple of long-range boats found bluefin in the 100- to 200-pound class SW of San Martin in the area roughly 160 miles from Point Loma. Seiners were already on them and the bluefin disappeared on Sunday in rough weather. Since then, the fish scattered.
