Life raft,survival suits,3 batteries,60 gallon livewell,8 rods,120 gals of gas,2 litres of cherry coke and 2 old guys . Did I mention the peanut butter and crackers for lunch

I'll be out tomorrow somewhere on the southern/eastern bank area. Give a shout on 68 "Buzz". I'll be really all if I can boat a 57-59", although my lifetime best of a >73" won't be without !

No fish here either,one takedown may have been a bass or small tuna on the mack but that was the day. May try seal fishing soon seems to be quite a few out there,any ideas on leader size and bait preference

I must have traveled 100 miles scouting and trolling and saw no signs of tuna. We were out looking by 5:30AM and spots were void of boats (I think we were the 1st out there), came back a couple hours later and the spot was filled with boats and still no tuna? Did I miss the party?

They must be killing em with all these bad reports

I'm finally getting out tomorrow on the hunt for cod/haddock , looks like a bluebird day, which usually means a tough day for tuna, but we'll have the gear if their around.

Zero for me also. Tons of bait and stripers but no charlie. Sporty on the way in to say the least. Next weekend hopefully will be better.

Yup, same (nothing landed) for me. Hit it hard all day saturday covering tons of ground over a 9 hr period. All lower 1/3 of Stellwagon around the backside to golf ball, in and out 7 miles. Didn't see one whale or any birds working.

Plenty of bass in & around Race Pt but tuna was prime target.

Steve how did you and Jeff do?

We kept to the SWC and the Notch Saturday trying to save gas.

No birds, no bait, no marks.

Of course I had plenty of bait and my 3 rod spread looked beautiful. When the fish show up there will be no bait.

When in doubt, go east and don't shut it down till you start seeing fish....
