Canyon Yellowfin Tuna Trips Going Strong

These pictures are from the last two days of offshore tuna fishing on the 55 Hooked Up II out of Cape May, NJ

On Thursday’s trip we put together a decent catch of quality size tuna in the Wilmington Canyon. We decided to run farther north today and it paid off big time as we caught 24 Yellowfins and kept 13 of the largest tuna of the season for us. Nothing short of great Yellowfin fishing today and in all honestly, we could have caught at least another 10 more but the charter (Clean Earth Inc from Wilmington, DE) had all the tuna they wanted and said lets call it a great day and go home. Kudos to them for not killing more fish. We will be back at it again later tonight and for the next 3 or 4 days.
