New Jersey Bluefin tuna on Top Water 11/22

Had a call 9:00pm last night from Adam asking if I would like to join him for a Blue fin tuna hunt,
They’ve been some report in the past week, ended up catching 2 hours of sleep and back to Brooklyn to pick up my tackle from the shop,
Met up with Adam and Greg at 6:30 am, we launched out of Barnegat inlet to head North, after a good ½ hour we start spotting birds and splashes under the birds,
Made a cast to a nice pod and came in tight on the T’b lure prototype in 16cm 90g, I had the fish in less then 3 minutes in the boat on the Race Point,
A nice 58 inch hit the deck with cheerful joy around,
Adam kept on pushing north and we encounter another feed, all 3 lures went Airborne and I look at Adam’s face to see the joy and the sound of his reel ZZZZZZ,
Fish on, the fish took the lure 10 feet away from the boat, Adam landed a nice 56 inch fish on the BD rod and the lure that the fish hit was the Volador, took a quick photo and released the fish to fight another day,
The wind started to pick up and Adam came tight again on the Tailwalk Gunz in Pink, this was a nice hefty fish estimated in the 130lb range and over the 62 inch mark, we had it to boat side and after a nice fight we released it,
We called the day off at 11:00am, nice Monday to start the week J
I would like to thank Captain Sherer from Shore Catch Guide Service for a great day spent on the water.
Hope we will do it again.

Tight lines
