The seas were a little high, slow rollers around 6-7 and a few 8's in there.
At 10 we decided to go back and stop at the Coimbra.. started slow, then i made the call, at 1:15, lines up... guess what, not kidding, at 1:14, the rods hit.. double hit, (7 line spread), 2 BFT. One Keeper, the other short. we were excited and dropped the lines for one last loop... hit 3 times, with Albies, catch/release.. All in a long, but fun and good day.. most likely last of the season, maybe
What water temp were you in overnight in Block Canyon?

It fluctuated pretty greatly.. I say lows of 64.5 just west and a high of 69.7 on the edge and interior
Mostly 67-68

We had lines in at the 100 Square (Hudson) at 3PM on Friday afternoon. In a couple hours we had 4 good size Albacore. At night we lost one big Yellowfin on the chunk then put 2 Big Eye (80 & 100lbs) in the box.

A good meat trip, but no real Big Eye or Swords for us.

Up and down bite at the triples area for us last week. Fished Friday and had a very frustrating day, could get the fish fired up on live peanuts but they wouldn't stick around. Very little life, bait, and not a lot of fish being caught. Reports from Thursday were good, Friday slow, and it sounds like Saturday and Sunday were pretty decent. Water was around 67 so not sure how much longer those fish will be in there. Glad to get in on them a bunch while they were there regardless.

Late post: I had a few wahoo bites further offshore of that general area on thursday. For those knowledgable on these 'hoos in the Northeast: If the yft reports slow does that necessarily mean the wahoo presence will diminish as well? I would have thought those 'hoos were around eating the skippies in the area, not the sandeels, but really I'm extremely new to fishing for these wahoo. I'd guess the lower temps would push them out, but I keep hearing how October is one of the best times for wahoo here in NJ.

Someone with more wahoo experience than I could probably answer to that. I had a friend do some high speeding after YFT fishing in there Saturday and they had a nice hoo so they are definitely around.

I'm actually more surprised nobody has been picking any bluefin mixed in with the yellows. That bite started as all bluefin then switched over to yellowfin and if the baits still there I'm sure it'll go back to bluefin again.

Hey Guys new to making reports here, but I have been trolling yours for the season. So finally figured I would contribute....

We left out of Old Saybrook CT on Saturday am. We were heading for the lobster claw. When we arrived the water was much cooler then we were expecting (65-66). After listening to radio chatter and much deliberation we decided to move back to the fish tales for the overnight. We stopped about 8 miles west of block and found water around 72 degrees so we trolled that the rest of the way into block. We did catch a few mahi on the way over, but that was it. We trolled the west wall and the east wall before sunset. Nothing there, spoke to a few boats who were all having the same result. We started a drift in about 750 ft of water for the overnight. We set up for chunking and within about an hour we had a small mako at the boat they we threw a bait to ended up hooking, He provided a nice acrobatic stunt for us about 10 feet from the boat then we set him free. We would catch 2 other makos at night 1 bit a fluro leader and never got him to the boat. Fun night all and all, had mahi in the slick, Squid and Dolphin as well all night. But not a single Tuna. Woke up in the morning started trolling for a few hours had one short run off but that was it. By the looks of it, we probably should've went to the Hudson...but oh well! Maybe next week! Thanks for all the reports!

Caught our first Wahoo this year just east of Triples and would like more information from Wahoo experts if they are still around or if they moved back south as the water cooled. Really delicious fish.

As for the Inshore Tuna, I heard some reports of the BFT caught on troll around Yankee but they were buried in with the Bonitas.

These are the “northern” triples. (Lexington, Bedevind, West Wreck)

The triples everyone is talking about are the “southern” triples. (Haskell, Parker, 3rd?) They are W from the tip of the Hudson.

What would you recommend for a vertical jigging setup? I'm looking to acquire one popping one vertical for next year. Dropping a lot of coin on the boat this fall may not have the budget until the Spring.
