Found Skipjack Tuna off Newport a few miles.  9/9.  Tons of them, but way too fast to keep up with.  Finally got one.  10 lbs.  They are an offshore fish that come inshore during storms like Hurricane Fabian.  Warm water blows in so they come in close, within 10 miles from shore.  Also Mahi and Yellowfin tuna out there but we couldn't find any.  THere are some bluefish mixed in there to.  We were into them for 5 days straight, hooked up about 15 times all week, only landed 1 between the two of us.
