It is not over yet.
They wanted to fish bluefin on poppers in Cape Cod on the way down.
Capt Jimmy the Greek found tuna popping here and there.
But tuna ignored even they cast poppers right in the middle of boiling tuna.
Finally Dong M Shin hooked up a 100 lb tuna and the whole fight was filmed for TV show.
8' Black Hole Cape Cod 80 Graphite/Stella 18000 were used.

They were so happy that they asked me to arrange a destination for the show next year.
I said " ASCENSiON !!" without any hesitation. So we are going to Ascension next year.

Cool report! I'm glad the trip/filming/catch was a success.

Thanks for sharing.

Glad I saw this thread. I commercial fished the giant tuna one year, off Chatham, Cape Cod. We got all ours by trolling bar rigs on rod and reel. I caught 11, biggest at 850, although most fish were 500-550 lbs. I find it interesting that no matter the size, all the fish took just under an hour to land.

It also seems that the ends of the season are the best for BFT on artificials. There are a lot more smaller fish around and the water temp is cooler. Even though they are warm blooded to a degree, tunas seem to spend more time at the surface when the water is cooler.

PS...I hope that by ASCENSION, you mean the island (marlin?) and not Ascension Bay. There have been a few bad reports coming out of that area in recent years.

I fish bleufin in Cape Cod regularly. I plan to fish on Tueday and I have 5 days trip in Cape Cod from Oct 15.
As you mentioned, small tuna and big tuna are mixed together. While fishing inshore close to Peaked Hill Bar areas where many 100 - 200 lb tuna have been caught, one boat I know hooked up 1000 lb giant with 8 lb live bluefish and they lost the giant as leader line broke. The area is only a few miles from the land.

Ascension Island in South Pacific, not Ascension Bay.
