Alternatively, and more fine-grained, there is 

global dump_current_packet: function(file_name: string): bool;

which can be called at any time and, well, dumps the current packet
into the given file. If the file already exists, the packet is
appended. If you always dump into the same file, Bro is smart enough
to keep it open all the time.
