Checking with the moderators they suggested I kick off the 2010 Canyon Report thread once I had something to put up if no one else did so first. So here we go.

But first - I just want to wish everyone on this board a safe and successfull 2010 canyon season. Let's hope the big-eyes are back even half as good as last year and the yellowfin show up on the chunk for the first time in 3 years - we can only hope!

Canyon Runner Yellowfin Report ? 1st Trip Out of New Jersey for the Year

We can?t say this is our first tuna report of 2010 as we did quite well with medium and giant Bluefin tuna down in Oregon Inlet this April, but it is our first tuna report for New Jersey and that means hopefully another 120 canyon reports coming your way. I say hopefully as that would mean we go back to a normal canyon season where we catch them in the spring, summer and fall ? unlike the last two years where it was spring and summer only.

Well we kicked the 2010 canyon season off with one of a dozen charity trips we gave away this year. This one went out to the St. Bernard?s School in NYC and was auctioned off to John Sargent of Manhattan. Capt. Mark DeBlasio took the 48 Viking out of Mansquan Inlet to 1100 fathom of the Hudson Canyon on Friday to find the edge of what is our first gulf stream eddy of the year. He had 64 degree water until he got to the southwest corner of the 1000 fathom mouth where the temp guage jumped to 67.9 degrees and the rods went off.

That first shot say 5 Canyon Runner Spreader Bars get attacked but we only came tight on a purple/black Canyon Runner Squid Bar and a ballyhoo. The fish were quickly boated and were in the 45 pound class. This was a day trolling trip and it was only 6:30am the morning so we were feeling good. Wrong feeling ? not another bite the rest of the day.

Default Canyon Runner Nice Yellowfin Report ? 8 for 18 ? Southern Canyons

Capt. Mark DeBlasio took our the Jeff Miskowski charter on a canyon tutorial trip (Seminar at Sea) and left Manasquan at 10am on Tuesday, June 15. With knowledge of fish to the south and the last water temp shot showing the water at the Hudson still way off the bank we headed to the southern canyons.

Hitting the Baltimore Canyon he found 68 degree water and more bait then he?s read in years. He also found some fish. The first shot was 2 for 4 on 35-40 pound yellowfin. He worked that area for a while to no avail and trolled further south down the edge with no other luck. The night bite saw a bunch of blue sharks but I think we overran the makos. The morning, now down by the Poormans, saw the guys go 3 for 6 on 35-40 pounders before 6am and then 3 for 6 on 45-50 pounders are 10am. They had a couple other shots that didn?t come tight and had to leave early to start working their way up the bank again to shortern the ride home. At one point they were 135 miles from the inlet. The bites came on Canyon Runner mini-rainbow Green Machine bars and ballyhoo.

Let it not be said that we won?t run to where we have to put our charters on fish!!! I just hope they move a little closer ? please! The boys are supposed to get me pictures tonight - if they do I'll post tonight.

Thanks Matt!!! Here's the first pictures.

In what can only be described as a miracle - my crew actually got me a picture the same day they fished!

Here is a shot of the Jeff Miskowski charter - as you can see these yellowfin are nice size fish and the guys have some great eating the next few days!!!

Default Canyon Runner Yellowfin 6/17-18 - 12 for 20 ? 35-50 Pounds ? Pics

Capt. Phil Dulanie took the 60? Ritchie Howell out on Thursday with the Damien Romeo charter from Forked River, NJ and Capt. Mark DeBlasio took the 48? Viking with the Peter Schoels charter from Weekawkin, NJ. With the success the day before down south off they went again for a 130 mile ride to the Poormans area. They started north and each boat picked a couple yellowfin in the afternoon troll. Both set up for sharking on the drift with the 60? Ritchie on the back in 100 fathoms by the Poormans and the 48? inshore of the tip. Both boats had various species of sharks throughout the night including tigers, duskys, blues and the 60? lost a 125 pound mako at the boat when the hook fell out.

Up on the troll in the morning the action was slightly better with 4 fish taken on each boat. Almost all the bites came in singles so it spread out the action but limited the quantity as we just couldn?t load up the rides. Our Canyon Runner Spreader Bars caught the most to the point where both boats had out 5 and 6 bars respectively. Mini-Green Machine Bars and 9? Purple/Black Squid Bars produced best. The fish were loaded with 9? squid. All the yellowfin were between 35 and 50 pounds. Nice fish on the troll.

Default Canyon Runner Yellowfin/Bluefin 6/18-19 - 10 for 20 up to 80 Pounds

Capt. Mark DeBlasio, Capt. Hook, and Capt. Mark Jankowski took the 48? Canyon Runner out with the Jack Gamill charter leaving the dock at 6pm Friday afternoon and running right to the edge. However, on their way out they saw tons of life in the Chicken Canyon area and made a note incase the canyons didn?t produce. They set up on the edge on the west wall in 650 feet on the drift and planned on sharking for the evening ? until the deep sword rod went off and the fight with the gladiator of the deep was on. Unfortunatley, this time the sword won. With the Lindgren-Pitman disco light in sight the sword pulled off. The rest of the night was uneventful.

Up on the troll in the morning they started a slow pick of fish in and around the west wall of the Hudson. Most of the bites cam in 550-750 feet of water. The favorite Canyon Runner spreader bar was a modified Mini-Mamba bar with a ballyhoo as the hook bite instead of the lure. We also had fish on Ilander/Ballyhoo combos. The yellowfin came in bites of 1 for 4 and 3 for 5 and they ended up with 4 yellowfin up to 50 pounds. They stopped for a while to tile fish and in an hour caught 12-15 up to 12 pounds. They then took a shot inshore to look around where they had life the day before. A few miles short in the area of the Chicken they had Bluefin rocketing out of the water and the first bait out was engulfed by a 55 inch Bluefin. A few minutes more on the troll and they went 1 for 4 on 40 pound Bluefin and called it a day.

Capt. Paul Dalik, Capt. Mike Zajac and Capt. Deanne Lambros had the Dave Patrick charter out on the 60? Ritchie Howell ?Canyon Runner? and also had to leave at 6pm. They made the Toms Canyons before dark and set up a slick ? and drifted no where in slick calm seas. They did though have a professional chef on the boat who fired up the cockpit grill and made ?one of the best meals we?ve ever had on a boat?. Ribs, tuna tacos, quessidillas, steak etc. etc. was flying all over the cockpit as a few blue sharks were released at night.

Up on the morning troll they worked the canyons both walls and started to pick away at 40-50 pound yellowfin. The bites came mostly in single with the day seeing the crew go 4 for 8 on yellowfin with once again Canyon Runner Squid and Green Machine Bars and single ballyhoo accounting for everything.

Default Nice reports !!!

Adam, Phil and Mark:

Great work, once again. You guys consistently put your charters onto the fish, whether tuna, swords, sharks, or tiles, and often all four in one trip.

wasabi- yellowfin

Daytrip on saturday 6/19 produced 5 nice 40-45 pound yellowfin and a bunch more near misses. On board FTC member pete and his dad, TJ sarcona, and me. With no real intel to go on, but a great weather forecast and good sat shot of decent water off the bank, we went. The warmer, 72 degree water that has been teasing the 1000 fathom line seemed to really want to push in between the Dip and the Hudson, so that was the plan. With some bird action, bait, and porpoise inside the 100 fathom line we put lines in, and after cruising thru and circling around some "fishy" water for a while with no action, we headed off the bank and found a few more birds, and our first yellowfin of the 2010 season, a legitimate (as in weighed) 40 pounder. Working the same area hard for a while more produced no more hook-ups, but several misses, and on on/off that broke our long rigger clip. After a quick repair, were back in business, but the birds and bait seemed to have thinned out, so we headed off a little deeper in search of the warmer water. We found warmer, cleaner, bluer water, but with little life. In 1,400 feet we get our next shot of fish, four tuna hit the spread and one immediatley snaps my new 80 pound mono, but the other three (all weighing in at 45 pounds) are landed after some pretty good fighting with each ripping 20-24 pounds of drag with ease. Lots of spunk for fish of this size. Working the same area hard produce no repeat, so we made our way a little west, hitting the bank again, and eventually finding another tuna, just a single, but a good way to end the day. Great day with a hard working crew, great sea conditions, and a hand full of tuna for our effort.

Default Canyon Runner 6/21-22 - 214# Big-Eye/170# Mako/Yellowfin & Bluefin

With 10 canyon trips already under our belts this June we are starting to get well dialed in to what is going on offshore. On Monday-Tuesday of this week we were able to take advantage of a bunch of patterns quickly developing and put another solid catch together for out charters.

On the 48 ?Canyon Runner? Capts. Mark Jankowski and Hook Leconey with mate Ryan DiBaggio in the pit put an open boat trip (we now run at least one open boat trip a week but all are booked up well in advance so if anyone is interested in one of these please call or email now as the first available are not until later July). Leaving Manasquan Inlet at 3:30pm as they just got back from the canyon earlier that day, they knew they wouldn?t have time to make the edge to troll so they stopped in the eastern end of the Mud Hole as soon as they saw signs of life and quickly boated a nice 80 pound Bluefin. With all that life there they decided to shark for the night and had a ton of action with blue sharks, browns and duskys but no makos.

Around 2am they steamed off to the Hudson Canyon to make it by day break as Capt. DeBlasio had marked big-eyes there the day before and they wanted to see if they would be on the feed. They were. At around 5am they hooked up on a Canyon Runner Rainbow Mini-Green Machine Bar (by far our favorite color combo for big-eyes the last 4 years). They were on a Penn International 50VSW and made quick work of the fish with Ryan DiBaggio sinking the harpoon less than an hour after hook up. The fish was a skinny 71 inch fish and weighed in a t 214 back at the dock.

They continued to work the area for hours as they constantly marked fish ? plus the boat next to them hooked a double header and caught both (congratulations guys!!!). However, no more bites were coming. They also found the yellowfin caught there Sunday-Monday had moved so they decided to go tile fishing. The bottom bite was solid with a dozen nice fish in an hour. With weary arms they choose to run inshore on the way home to try once more for Mr. Mako but struck out on them while catching a few more blue sharks and missing a thresher.

On the 60? Ritchie Howell ?Canyon Runner?, Capts. Mike Zajac, Joe Miele, Deanne Lambros had the Joe Terranova charter out Monday-Tuesday and had an early departure getting them to the Hudson Canyon before Noon. They immediately had a nice 50 pound yellowfin in the boat and quickly thereafter boated a second. 6 more hours of the afternoon troll produced nothing so a vote was taken to really target makos and back inshore to the 40 fathom line they ran. Good choice. Their night was spent with 20 blue sharks released and a nice 170 pound mako dead in the boat.

Up on the troll in the morning into the Chicken Canyon area they boated a nice Bluefin very early in the day but spent the rest of it looking at pods of Bluefin all over the surface but they couldn?t get them to bite again. They ran home at 10am so perhaps if they stayed longer they might have caught a few more.

I HAVE PICS OF THE BIG-EYE AND MAKO WHICH I WILL POST LATER TODAY WHEN I GET THEM OFF THE BOAT
