Bigeye Tuna Hits the deck

This past week we had the Palumbo Charter on board and we took to going after bigeyes as the target even though they have been few and far between this year. On the full moon we headed to the Hudson Canyon and prepared to put in our time on the troll. Without a touch for 6 hours, at 10:50pm the long rigger went down with a blue/white joe schute. Quick work put a #150 bigeye tuna in the boat and the crew aboard the Jersey Nutz was extremely happy. In the morning we boated several mahi and headed for the barn with the happy crew. Thanks to the Palumbo group!
