Still I like to go down to Lumpy Bottom area for bigger ones.Captain's John & Diana said:We have decided to fish the local canyons this weekend. Capt Mark will be out on the 55 tommorrow on a 15 hour day trip but targeting fish in the canyons as we speak. There is a decent bite on yellowfins along 30 fathom line and bluefins inshore along 20 fathom line so I see no need to burn all the fuel to go down to the NSSS at this time. You can now chunk up some very nice bluefins without the long boat ride. We will be staying local this weekend on both boats
I am not impressed with the size of bluefin caught locally.MDCanyonRunner said:Sounds like you can find some larger bfts at the Hot Dog and Sausage lumps too.....
Offshore action has been great this week, with most trollers returning with their limit of Bluefin Tuna. Trollers have also been coming in with king mackerel, dolphin and yellowfin tuna.

Based on the fishing report, bigger ones definitely in the south.
A guy had 17 bluefin tuna upto 135 lbs and lost a 73 incher on bait/jig 07-08.
I'll find out on Monday myself.
Here is today's report from Wachapreague, VA

sheeezzz,your a fishing animal LOL have fun and catch um up !!!KSONG said:Good luck on the HU1 Sat and Sunday trip and scout for us.
The report seems legitimate as we double checked.
I talked with a captain this morning who fishes everyday.
Still there is not much going on locally. You catch tuna here and there with smaller tuna now. But it can be changed anyday.
Our group are determined to target bigger fish on chunk/jig even though we might get skunked.
I going up to Hyannis, Cape Cod tomorrow to fish fluke in Nantucket Island and go down to Cape May on Suday. Pretty tough.
