You and me both!!! I am till whooped. Current was not too bad. You got in line at one end, floated your path, got out into the dark, and went back to the beginning of the line- much like fishing for tarpon in boca grande

this post reminds me of one time i tied on a jig for the bf and i learned quick that them bastards were just feet under the boat. if you let the jig fall too far then the sharks would get the bf before it could get past them back up to top.

Given that you bagged a 30 and 130lb yft on jigs, there must have been good #'s of yft in the area. From our experience, chunking could have been very productive. Hate to cut up larger bft but some times it worth the effort. Nice trip and thanks for the report

So with the new regulations on blackfin (2 per person) can I get a citation for catching a bunch to chunk with but not bringing them home?

I am sure there is a legal answer for that and I am waiting for it.

I pondered the same question as I had my knife and bucket out and ready to start filling up a chunking bucket.

Keep the bucket full of brine (ice and sea water) and keep a bottle of soy sauce on your cutting board for good measure.


Title 50: Wildlife and Fisheries
PART 622—FISHERIES OF THE CARIBBEAN, GULF OF MEXICO, AND SOUTH ATLANTIC
Subpart A—General Provisions


622.10 Landing fish intact—-general.
This section contains requirements for landing fish intact that are broadly applicable to finfish in the Gulf EEZ and Caribbean EEZ, as specified. See subparts B through V, as applicable, for additional species specific requirements for landing fish intact.

(a) Finfish in or from the Gulf EEZ or Caribbean EEZ, except as specified in paragraphs (b) and (c) of this section, must be maintained with head and fins intact.

(b) Shark, swordfish, and tuna species are exempt from the requirements of paragraph (a) of this section.

(c) In the Gulf EEZ or Caribbean EEZ:

(1) Bait is exempt from the requirement to be maintained with head and fins intact.

(i) For the purpose of this paragraph (c)(1), “bait” means—

(A) Packaged, headless fish fillets that have the skin attached and are frozen or refrigerated;

(B) Headless fish fillets that have the skin attached and are held in brine; or

(C) Small pieces no larger than 3 in3 (7.6 cm3) or strips no larger than 3 inches by 9 inches (7.6 cm by 22.9 cm) that have the skin attached and are frozen, refrigerated, or held in brine.

(ii) Paragraph (c)(1)(i) of this section notwithstanding, a finfish or part thereof possessed in or landed from the Gulf EEZ or Caribbean EEZ that is subsequently sold or purchased as a finfish species, rather than as bait, is not bait.

(2) Legal-sized finfish possessed for consumption at sea on the harvesting vessel are exempt from the requirement to have head and fins intact, provided—

(i) Such finfish do not exceed any applicable bag limit;

(ii) Such finfish do not exceed 1.5 lb (680 g) of finfish parts per person aboard; and

(iii) The vessel is equipped to cook such finfish on board.


(d) The operator of a vessel that fishes in the EEZ is responsible for ensuring that fish on that vessel in the EEZ are maintained intact and, if taken from the EEZ, are maintained intact through offloading ashore, as specified in this section.
