Capt. Eric of the Goose Hummock with one of three huge tuna he caught on the week, this one a 94-incher!
The best bet for tuna fishermen is the area between Crab Ledge and the Regal Sword wreck. The ledge has live bait in the form of mackerel, pollock and cod, but topwater lures and squid bars are also catching. The bonito are a hit and miss proposition with some small fish being found feeding alongside the schools of smaller bluefish. That said, things should get going on both albies and bonito in the coming weeks as baitfish are plentiful inshore and there are already reports of them in Rhode Island waters. Although the striper bite in the Canal fell off to just occasional fish there is a cadre of hard-nosed anglers tossing eels on night tides who are scratching up legal fish into the mid-30-pound class. Fluke are anything but a certainty with a few anglers we know targeting them and not catching a single keeper. Nantucket appears to be the only place the slabs are a reasonable expectation.
