After a quiet few days with weather keeping the boats at the docks, today was a nice change.  Many of our crews were anxiously rigging and prepping for this weekend’s 6th annual Big Fish Classic.  The ice and fuel calls were steady throughout the day and it looks like there will be a good turnout for the tournament.  The crew of the “Marli” was our only boat to report today, returning from the Poorman’s with 40 dolphin.  Tomorrow looks like we will have a decent amount of our boats heading out again to see what they can find so stayed tuned for that report!

It was another hot day down on the docks but it did not stop some of our fleet from heading out in search of the fish.  The Baltimore Canyon was the most popular spot of today.  First to return was the crew of the “Zipper” with a nice wahoo and a white marlin release.  Behind them was the crew of the “Marli” with 19 dolphin including one at 40 lbs, 1 yellowfin, and they also caught their limit of tilefish.  The “Gret’s three J’s” had a great last day fishing the Kid’s Classic returning with 4 white releases, and a wahoo.  The “C-Boys” also had a great day returning with two nice sized cobia.  Finally we had the crew of the “Fish On” finish up their weekend fishing in the Poor Man’s today and returning with a yellowfin and 1 white release.

It was a little quiet on the docks today with the heat keeping most people inside soaking up some much needed air conditioning.  We did have a few boats venture out hoping to find the fish.  First to return we had the “Osprey” with a white marlin release and 2 dolphin in the Rockpile.  Our next two boats found success in the Washington Canyon.  The crew of the “Buckshot” returned with 5 dolphin and a white marlin release.  The crew of the “Blue Eyes” came back with 2 dolphin, a white release and also a blue marlin release.  Our last boat the “Marli” returned from the Baltimore Canyon with 2 dolphin.  Most of the boats are watching the forecast for tomorrow and waiting to see what they will do.  Stay tuned and keep cool!
