Hot tuna bites stuffed September

FishRap Staff

Alan Beneze reportedly reeled in a 75-pound bluefin tuna on Sept. 2 while aboardRoyal Star.

The ship’s captain reported: “A nice day of angling on bluefin tuna from 35 to 50 pounds with a handful of 70- to 85-pounders mixed in. The bite started in the dark and was steady until after lunch, but the afternoon was very slow. The flatfalls were lethal accounting for 50 percent of the bites today with the one-ounce slider rig working well also.”
