History of Offshore Fishing

History of Offshore Tuna Fishing from Party Boats

Offshore tuna fishing from a party boat started in 1972, when Captain Bob Pennington was the first to take passengers aboard the first his Sea Devil boat. He combined a commercial tile fish trip with trolling for Big Eye and Yellowfin tuna.

As the Captain describes:

We would set our tile fish gear before daybreak and then put out the trolling gear and work the east and west sides of the Hudson Canyon. On our first trip we had more tuna than tile fish.
