Yellowfin & Bigeye Blitzes @ The Canyons

Kurt Saraceno

We left the Nantucket Boat Basin at 3:00am on July 4th for a day trip to the canyons. The weather forecast called for winds less than ten knots and a 3-5 foot swell.

Unfortunately on the way out, the fog made for some interesting navigation and it took us a little longer to get out to this canyon which we intended on fishing.

At around 6:00am, our 36' Yellowfin Rumble pulled up to the tip of the canyon. We throttled back, swung out the outriggers, and deployed the spread, which you can learn more about below.

Kurt fishes out of Osterville, and usually heads to the canyons and offshore waters surrounding Cape Cod with his dad Ted. We are excited to see where Kurt’s passion for offshore fishing takes him.

  1. It looks like a great day!
    Can you pass Captains info.?
    Thank you.

    1. Hey Igor 👋🏻

      Kurt was out fishing with his dad on their family boat. Maybe someday Kurt will run charters and he can get you out!

      For now there are some options for canyons charters if you are interested. Captain Damon Sacco is pretty well known and runs a sound operation out of Kingman, where I believe you sometimes fish out of.

      Here’s a link to his website https://www.castafari.com/index.html

  2. Sounds like a blast! I haven’t made a trip to the canyons yet and I’m a recent transplant from MN so I’m really getting into saltwater fishing, I’m hooked! Reading stuff like this gets me all amped up to get my act together and get a boat that can get me there. Keep ’em coming!

  3. Great adventure and felt like I was with you, considering I don’t have the boat to make the trip to the canyon.
