|Just the fleeing hope for a shot at one of these big bluefin that have been roaming around from overnight range to long range land is enough to draw a guy offshore.
The last boat to get a shot at the big bluefin was the Independence, which kicked off the seven-day trip it's on right now with 10 of what skipper Jeff DeBuys called 90 to 135-pound bluefin on Sunday.
While the big bluefin are the glory fish--along with the unicorns, a.k.a. albacore--the big news is all this 12- to 18-pound yellowfin tuna that are shoving up the line.
It's mostly from 65 miles down, and a lot of the counts the past few days have shifted from bluefin to yellowfin tuna. The El Capitan and Dominator returned from day-and--half trips this morning with yellowfin limits. Toss in enough bluefin and albacore to keep it interesting and plenty of yellowtail and dorado.
