First Canyon Run of 2011 Season with Bill Pisarra

Had Bill book the boat by himself today, plan was to mix it up with as many species as possible. Started the day trolling the Hudson, had fish at first light got covered up on 3 different occasions, just not the size we were looking for, went 7-10, but only 2 fish were keepers and the remainders released. Decided to try some tile-fishing to fill the box, made a couple of drifts and nailed half a dozen to 10lbs. Went back on the troll looking for some bigger tuna, in the process we concentrated our efforts to include some Mahi landing 3 of them. Left the canyon to try some Bluefin tuna and add some bottom-fishing. Hit the Chicken late afternoon to hear of a tough bite, by luck I set up on the same Scallop boat I was on the day before, slow bite lots of Bluefish but finally hooked up an under on a jig. On the way home we hit a wreck and landed Ling and a nice Cod. 6 different edible species, on a beautiful flat calm day.
