Giant Bluefin Like This Are Starting To Show Up Off Hatteras

Saturday and Sunday February 12-13, 2011 brought great weather and lots of hungry Bluefin!

There’s tons of bait holding in the area, the monster fish are moving in and the bite is on! Several “BIG” fish were caught over the weekend!

The action should concentrate around the North East Rocks off Hatteras. The fish should hang around about four to six weeks until the middle or end of March when they usually move north where the Oregon Inlet fleet gets their chance. The bluefin are rangeing in size from 100 to 300 pounds, with some larger fish due to mix in and provide great jigging and trolling action!

Fin Seeker, Big Easy, Big Tahuna, Native Son, Bite Me, Goodtimes and Marlin Mania got their keeper bluefin and released plenty more this weekend. Big Tahuna also had 19 nice blackfin.

Here are just a few of the citations that were recorded. On the “Native Son”, Michael Vaughan of Smithfield, VA. Joseph Vaughan of Tappahannock, VA . William Allensworth of St Stephens Church, VA all released Bluefin Tuna. Rich Taylor of Warsaw, VA caught a 210lb Trophy Bluefin. Jake Jumper of Smithfield, VA caught a 105lb Bluefin Tuna.

The “Bite Me” got in on the action, Matthew Stankiewicz of Berlin, NJ released 3 Bluefin Tuna. Fred Pohlig of Bellmawr, NJ released a Bluefin Tuna. Lou Tami of Carteret, NJ, and Carl Meumayer of Yonkers, NY released a Bluefin Tuna.

The “Good Times” caught their share as well. Michael Lentz of San Francisco, CA caught a 201lb Bluefin Tuna. Tom Lentz of Mocksville,NC released an 83″ Bluefin Tuna. Robert Lentz of San Francisco, CA released an 82″ Bluefin Tuna.
