Just found this Forum in my email in box. Last week's catch out jigging 37 miles off the coast of Fire Island. The trolling while there was not productive so we started jigging. It was the only fish caught. It is a long, long ride from Point Pleasant. Worth the effort.

Monday 8/5/19 - Found whales about 8 miles short of the Atlantic Princess. Dropped jigs and got 2 school bluefin before 730AM. We ran out to Chicken Canyon for mahi on pots. Got 2 small ones on the first pot but the pots were few and far between so we headed into the Glory hole where we got a nice dolphin and another small one.

Tried the Atlantic Princess area again 8/17. Nothing happening with tuna so we went to the Glory to catch dolphin on the pot markers. They were loaded up and we caught 24 from 3 to 8 pounds.
Some on bait at the pots but most trolling past them.
Word is the tuna moved north and east to the Coimbra wreck. I did hear of a few lucky guys stumbling on them on the north side of the Glory and the east side of the Chicken.
On the way in at the west edge of the Glory we saw flying fish get up in front of us. Have't seen them inshore of the canyons for quite a few years.

Nice catch. We fished Axel Carlson Saturday while in the VFW Fluke Tournament. Gotta get a bigger net lost three door mat sized fluke out there. Caught many shorts and four keepers, biggest one about 4 lbs.
