Bill Mayo-Smith and his two sons came out for a half day of Striped Bass fishing trip on Monday. We were getting some good bites in the morning but with all the boat traffic a Sunday brings, the fishing died down around 9. Below is a picture of them with a few nice keepers they had caught.

Jack Murphy landed this 79 inch, just under 300 pound Bluefin Tuna on our trip last Thursday. We had hooked the fish on a pogie about 10 feet from the boat on a free swimmer. The bite was down near the golf ball behind P-Town. The fish took around 40 minutes to pull up.

On Thursday we landed a nice 300 pound Bluefin which we caught on a live Mackerel. We hooked the fish in the afternoon between the Southwest corner and Peaked Hill sand bar in about 180 feet of water. The fish are slowly making there way up to the corner

We had a great day of fishing on Saturday during a Striped Bass trip where we caught around 25 keepers. The Mackerel were real easy to get right off of Gurnet Point. After about 20 minutes of fishing we filled up the livewell. Most the Striped Bass were in the low 30’s but towards the end of the trip we found some bigger fish. We were mainly using live Mackerel but had no problem fishing the dead ones as well. The last two fish we caught were around 30 pounds and a nice 35 pounder.
