250lb Tuna Caught on Friday

The Tuna have not really shown up at Stellwagen Bank yet this year. I have marked a few fish and seen a couple crash but that’s about it. Right now we are fishing down around Nauset and further to the South. After having a few fish miss the hook the day before we finally managed to hook one on Friday afternoon. The fish was 77 inches and weighed around 250lbs. I have been seeing some fish moving North around the Highlands area on the back side of the cape. It should be soon when those fish make it to the Bank. There is a ton of life out there with whales and seals everywhere feeding on the sand eels. Also, about ten minutes after we bled and gutted the tuna we had around an 18 foot Great White come up to the boat and do a circle around us. A little sketchy..
