Canada 2016 Day 2

Bluefin tuna on the sounder!

The day started out windy, but by noon the sea had calmed down so the TAG team headed to the docks. We first jigged some live mackerel then joined 4 other boats just off Mabou Harbor. At first it looked like it was going to be a slow day, but around 3 pm the ocean erupted with tuna of all sizes. It didn't take long before the Bay Queen hooked up!

Hi there!
I noticed that on your "Where are we now?" feature, it says you're in North Carolina. Are you tagging tuna there, too? How did your Canada trip go?
