Tilefish Report

Tilefish Report 7-10-24
We had another very good Tile fish trip yesterday.
Everyone had an easy limit of Golden tile and we also caught a number of blueline tile.
The largest fish was a 25 pounder caught by Anthony DeMatteo from Brick, New Jersey.
We saw plenty of tuna on the surface throughout the day.
It looks good for our upcoming Tuna trips that start on July 15th.
We saw several schools of Tuna during the day but since we were tile fishing, we didn’t bother with them. That is, until a school popped up in front of the boat as we were making a move. We stopped and we hooked up three Bluefin, landing two.
Starting July 15, we will be making at least one tuna trip per week when we are not fishing for mackerel and blues.
Our next tilefish trip is scheduled for a 10PM departure on September 8th, and we may add another trip in August.
