Canyon Overnighter

Location: Atlantis Canyon
Time of Year: Summer
Targeting: Mahi, Longfin Albacore

Aboard the Tuna Nut, a 33-foot Hydra-Sport Vector, Neal Larsson sets out on a 24-hour offshore excursion to the deep blue waters of East Atlantis Canyon. The trip is full of action, starting with chicken mahi stacked up around high-flyers that let the anglers break out the light tackle and do some casting. Later in the day, tasty longfin albacore take an interest in the trolling spread and scream drag off the 30-pound-class stand-up gear. Once the sun sets, it’s swordfish time, and Dave Beaumont shows us his technique for rigging squid for swords. The anglers set their drift for the night and hope that a broadbill or tuna will find their baits worthy of a meal.
