I captained the 56′ Viking Nightwind to the Hot Dog for a pre fishing trip. We wanted to make sure all of the kinks were worked out before we fishing the Viking/Ocean Showdown Tournament held by South Jersey Tournaments. It was a short day with 3 hours of fishing, but we managed to get 5 bites on tuna. It was every bit of 5 foot out there, but there was still a small fleet of boats looking for tuna on the chunk at the hot dog. I did not mark as much bait or tuna like I had been at the Dog the past two weeks, and the water temperature dropped from 78.5 to 74.5, but we still got our bites and came home with fish.
