Reel Escape Films Are Back Again!
Manhattan Fly - A Day Offshore from Reel Escape Films on Vimeo.
Nick is back again with another great video shot from a recent trip to New York chasing some Tuna.
This was shot one day 60 miles off Manhattan. The boat Manhattan Fly is owned and operated by Captain Chris Hessert, along with his mate Chris Clackner. They left Jersey City at 4am on a glassy Hudson River. After a couple hour boat ride on an also surprisingly smooth Atlantic ocean they trolled for tuna in the "Canyons" area. They were successful in hooking some nice Atlantic Bluefin tuna. They went 6 for 6 (five released one 35" kept) all on spreaders, trolled a fly on a 14 wt fly rod all day but no hits.
