***Update, Tuesday, 9/19:*** An overnight trip Saturday to Sunday trolled a pick of longfin tuna on the first afternoon with Mushin Sportfishing, Capt. Alan wrote in an email. Boats that had been there at mid-morning loaded up good catches of the tuna. At night with Mushin, a couple of blue sharks were pumped in, and giant squid, lots, schooled past, and some were jigged. Up on the troll in the morning, good-sized longfins 45 to 50 pounds were consistently caught, solid action. Multiple were often hooked at once, and the two fish boxes were soon full, and the four anglers were tired out from catching. Purple and black plastics caught best, like they’ve been doing for Mushin.

Excellent fishing for porgies was plowed Saturday on the Norma-K III, a report said on the party boat’s website. Some customers limited out, and some tried blackfishing with crabs supplied aboard for that. Only a few blackfish were pulled in. Clams are provided for porgy bait. On a trip Thursday night, a decent catch of bluefish 2 to 4 pounds got whacked, mostly on bait, some on jigs. Trips are fishing for porgies and blackfish 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. daily and bluefish 7:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Thursdays through Sundays.
