Was out there Sunday with about 20 other boats working the area. Nothing for us, didn’t see anyone else hook up. Headed east and picked up or 3 man limit in 150’-200’, avg was 20”
I’ll try SWC next weekend.

Is that an edgewater 245cc? My edgewater 245cc looked almost exactly the same on Saturday with a 71" fish!

Congrats on the catch! Beautiful fish

Having a debate with another angler...with Comm. closed until 9/1, is Rec. Angling still open for fish 27"-72"? Trying to interpret NOAA rules reads like trophy fish are catch and release but small to medium are retain, correct? We hooked up Friday and got the fish to the boat but buddy has Comm. license this year and fish was borderline so didn't 'poon him.

I can’t believe no one on THT is busting your stones about your first tuna being coincidentally 72” When you’re on a rec permit! I believe you though, and congrats.

Tuna.com had a lot of neighbors on SWC, we went a few miles east 150ft. Nice morning, nice drift. Bit of a scare once all the adrenaline settled. It was 72” and I learned a lesson.

Who are the governing bodies for tuna regulations? I know NOAA is involved, but who else can I google?

Thanks, Jeremy

Remember you must report your catch when you get in

National Marine Fisheries Service are the governing body. They are a branch of NOAA.

Good news: permit is only $26
Bad news: I still need a boat

I got spooled a few weeks ago on a pogie school, it had me down to the backing in seconds and now the drag on the reel is toast. Was fun for the 15 seconds it lasted though.
