Tuna Update
Donovan Scott from Scottsdale Arizona was all smiles after landing a nice Albacore tuna on Monday while fishing out of Shelter Cove with Jake Mitchell (pictured right) of Sea Hawk Sport Fishing.

Fort Bragg and Shelter Cove were the hot ports the last couple days. Bragg boats found the tuna as close as 20 miles offshore. Scores ranged from the high teens to the mid-30s. The fish are big, too, with a hefty number of 30-pounders coming over the rails. The cove boats had it better, having to travel only 10 to 12 miles to find the right water and fish. The average score was about 30 per boat and mostly a nice grade of fish. A Dorado was also reportedly caught Monday.
