Lions and Tigers and Bears. Oh My!

Here’s something you don’t see every day. A school of small jumper Tuna in 30 feet of water just off Salisbury beach. The pogies sure have brought a lot if interesting neighbors to us this year.

This video comes from AJ on September 15 outside the Merrimack mouth. Just after the fog/mist cleared. And the boat was catching stripers as the tuna played.

    FYI – All recreational anglers should be aware that boaters need the $20 Federal “Atlantic HMS Angling” permit to even intentionally target & fish for them. Not having a tuna permit aboard the vessel and yet carrying gear & lures suitable for tuna, & chasing after them …. even ‘school toona’, is a Federal offense. Go to

      Bluefin tuna reach spawning age when they are 8 years old and 300 to 350 pounds. Those look like two year old 60 pounders
