In this video I am fishing with the team from the Goose Hummock Shops in Orleans and Dennis. We are on Phil Howarth's 39 foot Contender fishing for "football" size bluefin tuna off Cape Cod.
The day started flat calm with beautiful conditions. About an hour in we were hailed on the VHF radio and needed to assist a boat in distress!
We towed the boat, passed them off to the Coast Guard, and then managed to catch 2 hard fighting bluefin tunas before a gale started blowing over Cape Cod. The ride home was rough, plowing through 6 foot seas into a 30knot wind.
Full written report of this trip is available by clicking here.

I’m fortunate to have grown up on the beach, and I’ve been fishing since kindergarten. I have great family, friends and fishing experiences to be thankful for. Just being out there is enough-catching fish is just a bonus!
