Hatteras, Part II
Well, it took me a while to finally post an update and some pictures, but it was well worth the wait. We managed to get out for another day on the water out of Hatteras, NC on Thursday the 2nd of April. We were not disappointed as the fishing was similar to Tuesday, with plenty of bluefin tuna in the 160 pound range. These are the same fish that have been off the coast of Hatteras for several weeks, and the same fish that others have been seeing along the East Coast at other times of year. Interestingly, we never saw these fish down in Morehead City when the fleet was fishing down there in December and January. We ended up the day with 9 bluefin tagged, 4 additional hook-ups and 3 yellowfin tuna. A pretty good day by any measure and a great way to end the tagging season on a high note. Thanks to the crew of the Sensation (Dale and Alan) and everyone else who helped us this year for making our time on the water fun and productive!
