June 6th Offshore Report
Offshore tuna fishing is beginning to start up over the past weekend. Anglers have been successful with large bluefin out at Georges Bank, with some of these fishing moving closer in. Anglers are beginning to see bluefin holding east of Chatham while they gorge on mackerel and sea herring. This time of year last year we also saw the smaller, recreational bluefin south of Martha's Vineyard. However with gas prices being so high, anglers seem to be waiting for someone to confirm that the fish have arrived before using up their tank. With the start of the commercial season on June 1st, expect many more boats to try and land their fair share of bluefin close into shore while they still can. Tight lines everyone!
