I wanted to get out for a couple of hours yesterday morning before it starts blowing. I cleared the inlet around 7:15 am. I was hoping to repeat last week's hoo success on the hi-speed, but found no love all the way up to the Breakers. But there were lots and lots of tuna between 120' and 250'.
Decided to pick one up for some sashimi. Had a double hit. Tuna on a squid pup and jack on a spoon off the planer. Bled the BFT immediately - I cut them and throw them in the livewell to bleed - then ice them. Sashimi with some minced red onion and chives, a squirt of fresh lemon juice, and a drizzle of soy sauce.
After I picked up those fish, which is more than I wanted for dinner, I ran in around 11am. This storm was a pretty cool sight offshore. At one point there were three spouts side by side, but I was too slow on the camera.
