Crew: Jim,Bill,Leon,Shane,Bert & me.

Fished the 650 down to the point in the 69-70 degree blend. Looked good but the only bites & marks were from those little Bluefin/Blackfins ??

Made our way down to the stream to find pretty water in the 73-74 degree range but the tide was ripping just over 4 Knt's. Just before we crossed the line we picked up a nice gaffer Dolphin in the 72 degree stuff. Very cool for this time of the year.:thumbup:

We found our best action on about the 586 in 180 fathoms just over the hot side edge. We had 2 shots, the first was a 2 out of 4. One of them got chomped by a Hammerhead on the way in.:helpsmilie: Still got most of the meat. Then on the circle back we got one of those summertime Boscos on the center flat line right in the wash. Man how I live for those flat line screamers.:clap: It too recived some love from another Hammerhead but made it in the boat in one piece.

Not a lot of bites today but glad for the ones we found & with the Bosco & the others combined it was plenty of meat.

This is the snd season in a row that has seen tough Tuna fishing with only a hand full of days that lived up to OI standards. I think these things cycle & I am looking forward to a great 09 with acres of Yellowfin from Hatteras to Ocean city giving us all smiling faces & screaming drags!;-)

Thanks for all the great help & times out there guys. I sure am grateful to have so many great fisherman friends. Here's to a super 09. Merry Christmas & happy New Year to all.:clapping2:

See ya soon.


(Pino has a few Pics from back at the dock, it was too rough in the stream for action shots & the fog inshore was also a real treat):eek2:

Anything on the 27th of december is a bonus but a bosco and a small gaffer - well that just a super bonus. Thanks for another fun trip bill. So much for 5-10mph huh? Geez it was bumpy but the flatline bite made the day.

Here are a couple shots

Nice job guys, Soory for the lack of comunications. With a 2 man crew we ended up fishing for stripers off cape henry
with the rest of the nuts, did limit out but would have rather been looking around in some warm stuff. Next time.

Bill, thanks for the invite. Just for the record.....the 60 lb...estimated....YF was pulled-in by Bert...holding the cig. Great crew...enjoyed the striper fishing with Jake....thanks to Leon for teaching me how not to net a striper...dumb me. The high-lite of the trip was meeting Pino of ...."Squidnation" although a little disapointing, "just kidding"...you multi-tasker, but knows how to cook striper.

See ya, Jim

Yes it was a great crew just picked the wrong day, looking at the forcast and the temps you would have thought different. This time of year you can never trust the forcasters, but we still caught a few fish and was back at the dock ok. Will do better next time.

Nice going Bill & Co. Way to keep up the pressure on those doggone Tuna's. It's always a thrill to get one to smash a flat line. Todays shot shows all kinds of water in reach of Va. but no wx as usual. Good fishing to you next year Billy. dave
