A few years ago school bluefin tuna were being caught around Newport and Fishers Island. My friend and I headed to Newport (launching at Pt. Judith, RI) with the hope of catching one on the fly. After we caught a few bonito my friend hooked and landed a bluefin. Just when we were about to head back I got lucky and did the same. While only 15 pounds, it still is a fly-caught bluefin tuna.
