On 10/9/2011 just short of Hudson canyon two 80 lbs yellowfin on the chunk. Not the prettiest 65.5 degree water but they were there. Chatter on the radio indicated none were taken on the troll.(Key factor) we rolled up on a scallop boat and the skipper gave us scallop guts and the boat stopped to cull,that's when we got the tuna. When the scalloper moved the yellows were to tight to the boat to catch. Good Luck! Thanks Jimmy for the info and the tackle was perfect.
After shooting the fishing report with Ray Bartlett I decided to give him a jab about not wanting to fish the Suffolk Marine Anglers Striped Bass Tournament. Well, all formalities were dropped and I worked him over good about being cheap (which he is not) and tried to goad him into a heated discussion and it worked. We bantered back and forth but he held out until today, 10/5 when he called me and said he was going to fish. If you want to join him he is looking for crew with money to back him in this "costly" tournament. Good luck Ray, you are top notch and able to come back after a little knocking around. Good luck in the tourna
