The tuna bite has picked up again in the last week or so with a lot of nice fish over 70 inches being caught…The mackerel have thinned out and are really hard to get at High Pines and Farnum rock now. The pogies are still very hard to get, but they have been getting a steady few dozen everyday. The good news is that the bass and blues have slowed down at the bank so it is easier to fish without them stealing all your bait.
With a slow tuna bite we managed to get one to take the bait on Thursday morning. Andy Bulman caught a nice 69 inch tuna which ended up being the only tuna bite of the day for us. After catching some nice bass on the bank we stopped at High Pines on the way in to get some more mackerel for live lining in the bay for stripers. The bass fishing was still really good as we caught a couple over 35in and a nice 43in.
