It was snowing at Oregon Inlet Fishing Center today, Jennifer Swiatkowski said in a phone call. One to two inches was forecast, and the snow was cool, she thought, because she was from New Jersey, but the captains didn’t think it was cool, she said. None of the boats fished recently, because of weather. Plus, 4 to 6 inches of snow was forecast for this Thursday. But bluefin tuna usually arrive off the coast from the last weeks of February to the first weeks of March. One captain said he thought the tuna might arrive around the second week of March, because of this cold winter. Visit Website.
None of the fleet could fish, because of weather, said Loretta Davis from Captain Stacy Fishing Center. Giant bluefin tuna were docked early this winter, but none was seen in some time. The tuna could show up again, any moment, but no trips could look for them, because of weather. One or two inches of snow fell today, the only snow recently. Visit Website.
