The canyon yellowfin tuna run continues for the Canyon Runner Coaching members.
|Adam La Rosa reports as follows:|
Starting right where we left off – we had two tuna tournaments run this past weekend and had folks we coached up in the Winners circle in both the Manasquan Tournament and the Beach Haven Tournament. Chris Vennitti & Chris Jessen placed in the money in the Beach Haven. And one of our Members who would like to stay anonymous placed in the Manasquan Tournament. But the solid Member action didn’t end there as this past week and weekend saw most Members who made it to the canyons with solid trips and ended with inshore grounds finally giving up some decent bluefin action.
Capt. Dave De Gennaro made it to Lindenkohl Canyon just in time Saturday morning with his Hi Flier from Barnegat to boat a 45-pound yellowfin on the first balao deployed before the bite turned off to just three yellowfins that didn’t make the minimum. A run to Barnegat Inlet on Sunday morning produced light tackle action with stripers of 29 and 31 inches plus tautog from 2-4 pounds which were released since they are out of season. Dave has added a Saturday afternoon inshore trip from 1- 6. Call 732 330 5674.
Nick from Monmouth County was finally shut out Saturday morning as no stripers hit his $2 jumbo bloodworms or fresh bunker in the surf. However, there was good word today in that county from Vinny D’Anton who picked a few school stripers on his Chug Bug before failing to get any action on sand fleas.
The Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands switches to fluke on Saturday.
Small craft warnings are up through Saturday afternoon with northwest winds of 20-25 knots that may be favorable for fluke drifting along the Shore. Striped bass live baiting and bunker spoon trolling is holding up.
I’ve had a terrible day trying to stay on the internet, will try to get this out while it’s possible and catch up tomorrow.
