How'd make out? Any YFT OR tilefish ITB?We were in the Baltimore all day yesterday. We ended up calling it quits from trolling around 6:30 and tile fished until 8pm. We heard a couple boats talking about overnighting. One of them said he was planning to chunk some and if nothing happened, chum for sharks. There were YFT in a pretty concentrated area. Curious to know why it would be too early. Never chunked so trying to learn. Thx.
Very good explanation of something many of us probably didnt know.Oh.......... The unwritten law is that we ask for tuna fishermen not to chunk until after the OC Tuna Tourney because that is a strictly trolling tournament. The "rule" has not been well respected lately because, let's face it, we all want to catch tuna. However, the OCTT is a big money tourney so OC regulars ask for the cooperation. Catching tuna on the troll can be more challenging if there are chunckers around. Note I said "can". I have out fished chunckers while trolling, but generally it is more difficult.
