July 12, 2010

Fished with Bobby and his son, Jay today. We left Barnstable Harbor and headed NW toward Plymouth. Ran into acres of busting tuna on the flat-calm seas. They were tough to get up on but we did manage to get some decent casts into them. It was quite the acrobatic show, with tuna clearing the water and crashing all over. Some of the pods of fish were quite impressive and stayed up for a while, others were ones and twos and down quickly. Bobby had a fish smash a popper right at the side of the boat, but the fish was headed straight at us and we never came tight. The came up pretty hard around the tide change at Noon so we pounded our way back South and did some flats fishing for bass to end the day.
