The Northeast canyons are officially hot! Fish have been taken in large numbers from East Atlantis to Hydrographer Canyon. Big eye and Giant bluefin tuna are the most remarkable of all the fish landed. These fish have been taken on ballyhoo and splash bars in green and red/white. Look for the clean breaks from cold to warm water where they intersect the canyon wall. The bluefin have been caught on the cold side of the break where the big eye have been caught in the warmer water. This bite is real, so get your gear together and get out there!
