Tuna are still out there for those who are willing to do the research and find them. There hasn’t been a recent report of a super hot bite, but that could change any day. As of now, we will call it “fair’. Yesterday, our good friend Rick went out and caught a dozen tuna in the same area 25 miles out and near the south west corner of the Compass Rose. Today, a small sport boat came into the harbor with six fish caught at 16 miles! The story for the last few days has been “green water fish”. The coolest temperatures they were caught in today was 59 degrees at 16 miles straight out of Depoe Bay. There is blue water out there, but it seems the fish are hanging out at the edges of green and clear green, not to say there are fish in the blue water(no doubt there is), but it’s hard to pass up on biting fish so close to home. The clear blue water and warmer water may be moving in, but the only way to really find out is to get out and fish. Fisherman today said they went into the blue water, only to turn back and catch fish in the green stuff. The SST satellite imagery is fairly accurate, but not always perfect and always changing. The marine forecast has been far from accurate, as the ocean has been beautiful with little and even no wind for thew last three days. Commercial boats in Newport are reporting an abundance of tuna.
