Report: June Bluefin Tuna Bite

On Wednesday, June 5, the weather forecast and the bluefin tuna reports from the waters off the backside of Cape Cod were too good to ignore. I jumped aboard Captain Bobby Rice’s Seacraft to fish with Craig Cantelmo of Van Staal, who was looking to test out a prototype of the new VM275 reel. We were lucky enough to put the reel to the test on a big bluefin tuna that snatched a RonZ tuna jig. Here are some photos from an incredible day on the tuna grounds that included an all-day whale show and a basking shark sighting. And check out the video from the Cynthia C, one of the “stickboats” that was out harpooning bluefin tuna for the commercial market.
