September 2k9 half beak feeds

September means cool mornings and for me the beautiful drive through Rochester and Carver across old country cranberry bogs full of water and floating red berries. It also means it is time for the Tuna to turn it on. This year we started to see the schools of Blue fin Tuna feeding on the surface on half beaks early in September. What a sight, and some days you could set your watch to it. Unfortunately it did not last for more than a few hours each day, so as the feeds got later and later the rest of the day was a dud. But unlike many other species of fish in the worlds oceans you can not change tactics and do something else because as soon as you do the Tuna will throw you a curve ball and feed all day long.
