Default 131 Hole

After my abject failure to score any tuna during my recent trip to Venice,:looser I have been looking a little closer to home. I was wondering if the area around the 131 Hole or the Elbow commonly has conditions that might yield tuna? I hear about the Spur alot but it is at the edge of my range without carrying supplemetal fuel onboard. Just curious. I noticed that the Roffs report that I got for last Friday indicated that the 131 Hole/ Elbow area was in blue water.

Thanks

Alan

Its been years since I caught a YFT any closer to Pcola than the Spur and even then they were incidental. If you want Tuna, go to the rigs.

Good place for wahoo and some blackfin at times but the YFT dont typically come in that close...i think it would be a waste of completely good fuel for you...i typically fish the elbow,131 hole,spur,nipple,and squiggles all summer and fall for the past 15 yrs and have never caught a YFT at the elbow or 131 hole

Have caugh a couple of smaller (80lb) YFT at the 131, but not enough to target them specifically there. They make a nice surprise while wahoo fishing though.

Thanks gentlemen. Just wishful thinking on my part I guess. Looks like until I get my project boat finished I'll have to stick to fishing the public wrecks and near shore rigs.:letsdrink Hell, life could be worse.:usaflag

You'll stumble across one occasionally. This one and several more came from the Spur.

Downtime is right it is hit or miss at the 131 & Elbow but I think Gem Dandy caught a large Yellow Fin ateither the Elbow or 131 holeand wonfirst place tuna in the Pensacola BigGame Tourney many years ago. In fact he was in a 22' foot center consoleI believeI know it was a small boat competing against the big boys.I was there when he brought it to the dock .

You might want to purchase a Hot Spot Chart. It shows all these locations and just about all of the areas that you hear people talking about.

The area known as the "Dumping Grounds" is fairly reliable on up into the summer for school yellowfins (50-80 lbs.) and occasionally you'll hook a big boy. Unfortunately it does take some hunting but usually you'll see a frigate bird or something that will give them away. Whatever you do don't fish near the Royal Red boat if you see him out there...you won't catch nuttin'.oke
