Fish Report for 7-3-2012

Lots of boats on the Bluefin grounds, means limited action

"With the weather backing off," said the American Angler report for July 2, "we thought it would be a cinch and a no-brainer that we would be moving from tuna school to tuna school. When we arrived on the grounds it was still a little choppy, but plenty workable. We found an area of scattered fish after a couple of hours of looking and were able to plunk a few fish. After a few victories and a few losses, we ended up with 38 nice bluefin tuna and then did a lot of driving.

There were a couple of decent stops to be had for the fleet but we can all do the math with seven boats in the area. We are rolling out to a new zone in hopes of having better action."
