Yesterday I went out on a private boat. The weather got worse as the day went on with winds picking up to 25 knots southwest. Started out in the warm water of the gulfstream and hooked two Gaffer Dolphins as soon as we put the lines out. After that, things got pretty slow so we went up into the cooler water where the Bluefin Tuna fishing has been great for the last couple of weeks. We caught all we wanted and came back in early before the weather got worse. Fishing regulations allow us to keep one Bluefin Tuna per boat. Here is the one we kept, all others were released. This Bluefin is about 145lbs. The Yellowfin Tuna should start showing up in better numbers over the next couple of weeks.
