It's been going on for almost a couple of months now. I wouldn't call it a NJ tsunami buoy. It's a lot closer to MTK and Martha's Vineyard. I heard the fish that are there are smaller at this point. I can't confirm, but that's just what I heard. Check it out and report back

Friends fished the Tsunami Bouy maybe 10 days ago. It was OK. They ran from Shinnecock and it was 130 ish.

Go for it. Bring an 85' viking with 20 divers; tie off to the buoy and drag it miles off it's base position. Seal everyone else out. Oh wait, you are late for that also....

Thanks for the input. Better late than never, I would say. Anyone know how to fish there? trolling or chunking? Or just throwing jigs like what I heard? Are the fish close to the buoy or in the open water? Sorry so many questions. Never been there and a long ride. Will my gas tank big enough for a trip like that?

Thanks again for any help I can find. Appreciate it.

By the way I might need to troll on an aircraft carrier to fish frying pan tower now.

I think it is the NDBC Station 44402. 39.298 N 70.659 W. Closer to MTK and the vineyard.

The common fuel rule "rule" is ⅔ for use and ⅓ in reserve. Would you be fine if you had less reserve? Probably. But it's a long ways out there. If it was me I'd bring more fuel in bladders.

I am building a new boat to be delivered in April 2019. The standard fuel tank is 530 gallons but can be added to 590 gallons. If it has to have 1/3 as reserve I will get install the 590 gallons tank just to err on the safe side.

Never been out that far. Just very curious how the fishing is. Hopefully worth it.

Divers get the lions share of fish. Problem is nobody else catches while they are down there. If a station keeper/sky hook is an option, get it. If someone is tied off at least you can sit right next to the bouy.

Make sure they plumb those tanks so they can feed either engine. Because if you lose an engine the last thing you want is half your remaining fuel stranded in tanks you can't draw from.

If it will be your first season with the boat, skip the buoy and get to know it. The buoy is popular this year because it's the only spot holding fish. Hopefully it's just an oddity. But a few years ago the wx buoy's had that distinction, and it was a pita.

Letr's hope migration patterns aren't changing.

Most fish were jigged. There was a boat tied to the bouy and there was a boat trolling around as well. They were there right after the divers were there so it was not lights out.

How big were they? I had a buddy who said they got a bunch, but they were 30 lb baby eye balls. At some point the body fish will be picked over.

Thank you for the advice. Were the divers there for maintenance or on every day routine? If they are there every day that sucks. I thought tying up on a weather buoy is not allowed.

Thanks. Hope I can make a trip there in the next year and catch them on jigs.
