    The Frances Fleet ran a tuna trip last week, making a long steam (presumably to Hydro) and they did really well on the yellowfin. They trolled up a few fish right off the bat and set up for the night where they had a steady pick of fish until daybreak when the bite lit up. 32 yellows were landed on jigs in an hour-long bite with fish going to 75 pounds. There were some swords overnight, too, as they boated 1 of 4 hooked with about a 200-pounder lost boatside. They have several more offshore trips scheduled, call for details!

    If you don't have a canyon-capable boat then don't fret as there are options to get your tuna fish this fall. The Frances Fleet ran a 3-day trip this past week with good results, putting 30 yellowfin to 100 pounds on the deck. Most of the fish were caught on the troll, but they had a good flurry of jig action on the final morning of the trip before packing up to sail home. They still have 11 trips on the books for the season, so call today if you'd like a chance at experiencing some canyon fishing this fall!

    The Frances Fleet ran another couple of tuna trips at the end of September and found similar tough bites as the other boats that have been sailing since the big storm of early in the month. They have weekly trips through the month so give them a call if you'd like to hop on a boat!

    The Frances Fleet sailed for tuna twice this past week with decent results. While yellowfin were the primary target, they had a tough time find a consistent bite on the yellows but found plenty of albacore and mahi. They also boated several small keeper swordfish. These offshore trips will be running through the fall so contact the office to reserve your seat at the rail!
