1/4 mile off the beach this A.M. Bluefins busting
on small baitfish. Spearing,rainfish? I chased them around for 90 minutes and had 1 brief hookup.I never had so much fun chasing fish. I threw everything I had at them. I wonder what I could have done different?

Make sure to let it sink!!! If they are busting on top, allowing your shiny lure to sink below the baitball they are working will single out your lure. then do a jerk retrieve. It may take a few casts, but you'll eventually get slammed!

Not saying there weren't other in the mix. I have caught albies before. A couple of times I was right in the middle of them busting. They were torpedoing right out of the water right in front of me. These tuna were solid silversided,and I
talked to a buddy of mine last night. He trolled up a 25lb bluefin right were I was fishing.
