It was an exciting Saturday afternoon here at the marina with a lot of fishing action.  We had about 25-3o boats head out there today between Sunset and Fisherman’s and we saw a lot of them return with decent catches .  We had two boats fishing out of the Poorman’s Canyon today.  The “Marli” had 1 yellowfin and so did the crew on the “Primary Search.”  Our only boat that fished out of the Washington canyon was the crew on the “Layin Lines” returning with 2 yellowfin tuna and a nice big eye tuna.  All of our other boats went to the Baltimore Canyon today.  The “Absolute Pleasure” returned with 6 yellowfin.  The “Tara Jessica” had 6 dolphin with one weighing in at about 30 lbs!  The “Grande Pez” released a white marlin and the team on the “Chain Reaction” also released a white marlin and had a yellowfin tuna.  Finally the crew on the “Reel Tight” returned with 2 yellowfin tuna.  It looks like we have some weather coming in that may slow the fishing down a bit but hopefully it won’t be too long before we have some exciting things to report back to you!

It was a great day to have the summer solstice !  The sun is still shining bright and everyone is still enjoying time at the Marina.  Whether they are indulging in a cocktail at Teasers, enjoying a nice dinner at the Grille or walking the docks to take in the view of our boats pulling back in, the atmosphere feels electric!  We didn’t have quite as many head out today but those who did were fishing out of the Washington Canyon.  The crew of the “Boss Hogg” had 4 yellowfin.  The “Marli” returned with a yellowfin and the “Moore Bills” had 2 yellowfin.  The “Christine Marie” had a white release and finally the guys on the “Lights Out” had 2 white releases and 15 yellowfin.  The ice orders are still coming in this evening so it looks like a decent amount of boats will head out again tomorrow.  Be sure to check back for the latest report!

Today proved that when weather permits the September fishing just can’t be beat.  We had several boats head offshore today looking for the marlin bite and they were rewarded handsomely.  Most of the boats went to the Norfolk canyon today.  First we had the “Osprey” return with 4 white releases and some dolphin.  The crew of the “Marli” caught a nice bunch of tilefish.  Next we had the crew of the “Keep Dreaming”  return on their new boat with 8 white releases.  The crew of the “Boss Hogg” returned shortly after with 1 yellowfin, some dolphin, and 2 white releases.  The guys on the “Seven” had 4 white releases while the “Christine Marie” had 4 white releases and 1 blue marlin release.  The “Pumpin Hard” had 3 white and some dolphin and finally was the crew of the “Billfisher” returning with 7 white releases and a blue marlin release.  Many are going to venture out again tomorrow before the weather turns for the weekend so we will keep you posted on how they make out!
