Pisces Fishing Report: August 2 – 8

According to the Pisces Fishing team, it wasn’t an easy week of tuna fishing with some boats running up to 40 miles.  While it’s hot (don’t get us wrong, it’s quite warm), the Pisces team thinks the difficulty could be attributed to the lack of tropical storms in the Pacific. For this week, billfish were the number one catch for Pisces. Possibly attributed to the presence of commercial boats in the area, tuna catches dropped slightly.
