Was there yesterday after 11 and today from 6 am till 12:30 pm... Didnt see a thing on the surface but a lone whale. Marked some bait and a few fish but down deep. Dont think any other boaters had luck there either. Trolled the NWC to the Mussells then took a course that took us a few miles southwest of Tilllies and still nothing and more nothing. Finally ended up at the SWC and again hit nothing. Over all I would say I got no good news for you but hopefully luck will change for you as I am back in Rhode Island and will fish south of block tomorrow for some smaller 50-100 lb class bluefin. Catch em up and keep me posted on how you do.

I hooked 3 tuna all on live pogies... Lost one boatside when leader broke... Boated a 63 inch fish ... All fish were caught off the bank to the west. First fished hooked was south of BE ... The other 2 were closer to SWC ... Not alot of life around a few fast moving whales no tuna jumping... Lots of rafting birds and tide lines... Each hook up had both of those around (rafting birds and tide lines)... Good Luck to all...

It was another disappointing trip for us to the bank, the fourth one with no results, not even a hit. We arrived at the bank a little late but were one of the only boats out there( later in the afternoon it got a little more crowded). We started trolling and whenever anything looked promising on the sounder we would stop and jig.

I started at the NWC and trolled in a zigzag formation across the main part of the bank. We then trolled along the easterly edge of the bank almost to the LL’s. I used everything in the arsenal yesterday but came up with nothing. I would like to believe that if there were fish there I would have at least got a bite. There was plenty of whales this time out and we had some really cool close encounters, but I would much rather a dead tuna and blood on the decks than watching frolicking sea mammals. In fact, the only reason I was happy to see the whales is because I thought there might be the possibility of tuna nearby.

Equipment used for trolling was
green machine daisy chain w/teaser bird, rainbow squid chain, deep diver plugs, cedar plugs
Jigs
Shimano butterfly jigs, hammered Jigs gold & silver, abyss jigs
No chunked bait because its impossible to keep the dogs off

Im glad you had a good day out there i would have hailed you but you were a little south of the range of my boat.

Put away the trolling gear fish live bait and you will have a better chance!
We get them there pretty much every trip

how do you go about catching and keeping the bait alive until you get out there? I've heard of catching snapper blues and macks but there is litterally nothing over where i am lol im in broad sound and it might as well be named the sahara desert

I would love to book a trip with you Raider, but i know i couldnt afford it.

At this point I would love to just go on someone else's boat and just watch them fish for bluefin. Hell, ill help out with gas or bait. I just want an apprenticeship lol.
