38 Pound Blackfin Tuna Caught!

May 20, 2017

The blackfin tuna fishing has been absolutely red hot.  If you are a sushi lover, then this is your time of the year to get out with us and catch one of the best eating fish in South Florida.  Most of the tuna are big and over 25 pounds.  On a trip this past week, we hooked a real whopper.  The fish was screaming drag and I thought we may have had a yellowfin tuna on which get much bigger.

After great angling skills by our customer, we got the fish close and it turned out to be one the biggest blackfin tuna I have ever seen.  After a perfectly placed gaff shot to the head, we had this gorgeous fish in the boat.  Our mate bled the fish so the meat quality was absolutely delicious.  Back at the dock, we bagged the fish and our customer went home with extremely high quality tuna for him and his family.

We have also been seeing a large number of mahi and sailfish this past week.  The mahi have all been gaffers from about 8 pounds to 30 pounds.  The days we have wind and current, the sailfish have been finding the kite bites almost instantly.

TESTIMONIALS

What An Adventure!

I never leave reviews, but we had such a good time, I wanted to share with others. Captain David and his guys are top notch, you can tell as soon as you pull up that you have booked a great trip. We went out with them in April 2015 and we were told this was one of the best months for fishing off South Florida. The captain decided to fly kites (amazing!) to dangle baits so that the fish can’t see the hooks. I have never seen this, but it was amazing to see them do it. Within a few minutes we had a first sailfish on and then another hit. A double header! We landed both fish and the day went on just like that. We were watching the baits dangle on the surface all day.  Other boats in the area were “trolling” and weren’t catching any. David said it was because the water was so clear that it was important to kite fish.  I highly recommend booking them.
