Fishing Report - Baby Bluefin
Submitted by Dr. Ken Neill


FI2 13Sep18Yesterday, we ran the Healthy Grin with Dr. John Graves out in search of young-of-the year bluefin tuna. Basically, it is fishing for Spanish mackerel offshore. There are special research permits involved....so don't do this at home. We caught a bunch of little blackfin tuna...which look very similar to bluefin at that size...skipjack tuna, dolphin, bullet tuna, and a single bluefin tuna. So success, sort of. We also had 4 white marlin come in. Got bites from 3 (on ballyhoo, not on the little spoons), and caught 2. The science people come for the baby tuna. My crew comes for the bycatch.
