Bring 'em on!! With gas prices falling, I can't wait!!Bottom line, you should be prepared to fish and take days off to do so. The conditions don't stack up nicely for days on end like the Summer. I don't think the Fall is as bad as Spring but it can be very volatile and I usually do not take mine after Nov. I have in the past but mainly, I'll look for invites on bigger boats for safety/comforts sake. The prospects for a good fall Tuna run (yellowfins) is not looking good as they are not really seeing them to the north and the bite to the south is decent but nothing like years past.
I will say (for anyone who cares) a good friend of mine fishes Cape Cod Bay and out of Chatham, MA. He is a legit pro...they have been killing the "school" Bluefins up there from 100-250 pounds all Summer and Fall. Best he has seen in years. They have been Spooled a couple times by Giants and many Giants have been seen. A LOT of Menhaden and A LOT of nice Stripers too. Maybe a fall Bluefin run will save the day. If I head back out after next week, I will look to spend a good morning on the Fingers looking for a Bluefin.
