BLUE FINN TUNA OFF VIRGINIA BEACH

Recommended Posts

I understand BFT were sighted off Va Beach yesterday. Story goes that a couple of boats ran into surface feeding fish 200-500 lbs but they were tackle challenged so they didn't want to have stuff torn up. Apparantly, there were a hell of a lot of big fish!

 

I don't know what the temperature was so if anybody knows, please post to this thread.

 

We should be able to keep track of these fish now and I am hoping they will make it to me here in Hatteras this year.

 

Let's keep this thread active throughout the run.

I heard they were at the 26 mile hill. That was 3rd party information so who knows. I'm sure with the anticipation of the bft's arrival and the story rolling through the ranks, by the end of the day they will have been sighted at the Rudee Inlet sea buoy.

Ken reported he hit 26-mile hill this week and found bluefish .... http://vbsf.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=27279

One BFT was landed for sure yesterday. Pic confirming it is the the Reports section of this website. Looks like the fish was ~200 lbs from the size of the fish in the picture.

 

Hope they plan on staying around and aren't just a migrating school on their way south. Lots of bait around just like last year, so I'm cautiously optimistic that the next few days will have more landings.

 

Stay safe on the water and Tight Lines!
