-Off-shore tuna fishing is at a summer peak, with good catches from both the canyons and lumps not too far offshre.Thursday’s forecast is for south winds at just 5-10 knots before it increases to 10-15 plus gusts to 25 and possible thunderstorms in the afternoon.
Capt. Jim Freda postponed his charter yesterday due to the forecast, but his son Tommy talked him into trying the nearby lumps where they jigged nine bluefins up to 45 inches.
Paul Haertel of the JCAA ran out to the canyons yesterday where his crew quikly trolled yellowfins up to a 41-pounder and released a large white marlin.
,Bob Correll and Zac Eisenbrey joined Mike Heaney of Bay Head on his 40-foot Cabo ,October Sky; in Lindenkohl Canyon for a hot yellowfin tolling bite at dawn yesterday.The rest of the trip out there wasn’t as productive, and a missed swordfish bite was the only overnight activity.
