@costalfiberglass, we did pretty well. Basically a 3 man limit of bass, but we worked hard for them.

Started on ne. Worked the break heading south lost two other tuna. First trip screw ups. Tuna seemed to be right in between 69* and 70*. No tuna bite after it hit 71 and no tuna bite once it hit 68. also all tuna bites came between 7-10 nothing after.

Unfamiliar with the Black Swan but be careful it's a small craft in the PM.

I'll be the ass of this thread. I hope you have more than one tile spot. Tile fish are a low migratory species taking double digits from one spot can really do damage to the tribe.

Default Black Swan fishing 5/20

We ran to the coordinates for the center of the warm water on last night s SST shot at 1000 fathoms , The temp break just wasn't there.
We had already run 105 miles from Hampton and set baits out in 67 degree water and immediately picked up a gaffer.
Started trolling south about 7-8 miles and nothing, water getting colder so turned north and more nothing.
At 1230 the wind switched around hard to the north and waves picked up so we turned home with 1 gaffer.
Rough conditions returning.
