LADY PAMELA 2 Giant Blue Fin TunaPosted on: September 17, 2011
September 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 Giant Bluefin Tuna Fishing
Earlier this year my dad told me that his dream was to catch a giant bluefin tuna. So I made the decision to take my dad fishing somewhere different. I phoned a friend that bluefin tuna fishes up in Nova Scotia, Canada, and set up a trip. God knows when I go on vacation I go fishing, shocker right? Well, I got to telling a few friends what I was up to, showed them some previous videos from up there, and soon we had a full boat of four people. My dad and I, Paul that fishes with me, and a customer of mine, Ed from New Jersey, all made the trip. We flew in the same day, got to our awesome house overlooking the bay, and settled in. The next morning we drove 25 minutes to the boat, loaded up, and we were underway and heading out the inlet at 7 a.m. We immediately started catching tinker mackerels, and filled both the live well and our bait box. We ran 2 ½ hours before we found the herring boats. The herring boats are also where the tune are. Well, everybody on our boat wanted to see how the herring boats caught these fish in their gill nets. As all this gawking was going on, I walked to the other side of the boat and started throwing baits over the side of the boat, at these giant bluefin tuna, swirling about underneath the boat; some of them over a thousand lbs. It was something to see. We motored away from the herring boats, put a baits in the water, and it wasn’t long before we were tight as a tiger. Ed jumped into the fighting chair for our first of two fish over one thousand lbs. We ended up fishing a total of four days and caught four giant bluefins. My poor dad was in the fighting chair four different times and never landed a one. We almost got the leader on one of my dad’s fish (about 100 lbs) but it pulled the hook 10 feet from the leader. The old man didn’t get his fish, but he had a helluva time! You’ll never believe it until you see it, but these fish look like small Volkswagen bugs swimming in the water. It was the trip of a lifetime.
