OFFSHORE WRAP-UP

Posted By Tom Pagliaroli
Location: New Jersey Offshore
 It’s a wrap! This is it for 2017 Offshore Report, and a tumultuous season it was. Between early and late arrivals of migrating yellowfin, bluefin and longfin teamed with the relative scarcity of white and blue marlin, not to mention bigeye, and trip-aborting weather and sea conditions during the ...

MUD HOLE BLUEFIN

Posted By Tom Pagliaroli
Location: New Jersey Offshore
 More longfin than yellowfin, good numbers of bluefin, an occasional bigeye, swordfish and wahoo, and multitudes of mahi and tilefish made up the offshore action through the weekend. The Hudson, Toms, Baltimore and Wilmington all surrendered fish of one sort or another. Hopes are high that this week will prove ...

IMPROVING FORECAST

Posted By Tom Pagliaroli
Location: New Jersey Offshore
 Another week of ugly weather and very sporty-to-heaving seas made for far and few encounters with yellowfin, longfin, swordfish and mahi in the north to south canyons. Once again, the hope is that this coming week’s into weekend’s conditions will be favorable and jump start a canyon season that never ...

WILMINGTON YELLOWFIN

Posted By Tom Pagliaroli
Location: New Jersey Offshore
S-L-O-W best spells this past week’s yellowfin and longfin action in the canyons. Bigeye? Still waiting. Mahi remain manic, bending rods and filling boxes. The waiting game continues, but you can’t catch Charlie sitting in the slip. A peppering of activity in the southern canyons such as the Toms and ...

OPEN WINDOWS

Posted By Tom Pagliaroli
Location: New Jersey Offshore
 The windows will be up, then down, then up again if the forecast plays out accurately; and this should spur a mass migration of boats to the canyons where yellowfin, longfin and mahi wait. Bigeye, marlin and wahoo are also possibilities as the canyon season, at least according to the ...

ADIOS JOSE

Posted By Tom Pagliaroli
Location: New Jersey Offshore
 The paucity of mid-range and offshore reports is irrefutable evidence that weather conquers all, and even the most ardent of tuna anglers took pause this past week and stayed at the slips rather than deal with some very tough elements. Still, a few did get out, and while last Sunday ...

GO AWAY JOSE!

Posted By Tom Pagliaroli
Location: New Jersey Offshore
It appears as it will be another tough few days weather-wise when it comes to getting to the mid-range and canyon venues, courtesy of Jose. Hopefully seas begin to subside by Thursday or Friday, but the early part of the week is mostly unfishable at the canyons. ...

WEATHER MESS

Posted By Tom Pagliaroli
Location: New Jersey Offshore
“Weather” or not to go out was the judgment call of the week and into the weekend, and conditions certainly did not help. With Irma’s remnants bearing this way, expect a brief window of canyon and mid-range opportunities to Thursday, with predictions of ugly weather and sea conditions into next ...

WEATHER WINDOWS

Posted By Tom Pagliaroli
Location: New Jersey Offshore
Rough seas most of the week kept most offshore hounds at dock this week, but those that did make it out to the Hudson in the small weather window seemed to be rewarded with a presence of longfin tuna, with a bunch of yellowfin and bigeye tuna also mixed in. ...
