The day before yesterday Nick Stancyzk caught a blackfin tuna daytime deep dropping for swordfish. The blackfin tuna was caught at 1,000 feet.

I did not know that blackfin tuna went down to 1,000 feet. Did you? Or did anyone else?

The swordfish that I caught over the Memorial Day weekend revealed a small blackfin tuna completely intact in its stomach. I estimate the tuna was eaten about 4 hours prior to me catching the swordfish.

Perhaps this will lead to some new research on baits. Blackfin belly, bonita belly and skipjack belly are already some of my favorite baits.
