LONG-RANGE TUNA UPDATE

The yellowfin tuna bite for the long-range fleet fishing .off the cape of Baja California has continued to be excellent this past week. The weather conditions were much better, and the catch reflected that improvement. On Jan. 22, Independence out of Point Loma reported that anglers on board landed 30 yellowfin from 100 to 200 pounds — in addition to five cows over 200 pounds. Skipper Jeff Debuys called this excellent bite “slower than it had been.” Really?
