The cow-sized yellowfin tuna were in the count. The charter fleet and private boats found some smaller yellowfin tuna a bit farther offshore, leading into September, which shaped up to be a hot month for fishing!
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…
The yellowtail bite that had been en Fuego has somewhat slowed from all the pressure. Despite that, we were able to get quite a few nice yellowtail on both days. Knox, age five, was stoked on his first yellowtail which was almost as big as he was! And his dad, Doryan, is so happy that he now has a new fishing buddy for life.

Finally, the fishing for roosterfish has been epic. The presence of good quality live bait and grande-sized roosterfish have put lots of smiles on the faces of anglers.
