We had many  boats venture out today in search of the fish!  The docks were buzzing with activity and the scales were a constant traffic jam as many boats in the Kids Classic came in to weigh their catches.  Congrats to all who participated in todays weigh-ins.  Our first boat back to the dock was the crew on the New Release returning from the Washington Canyon with 1 yellowfin and a dolphin.  Fishing alongside them was the crew of the Bar South returning with 6 yellowfin and 4 white marlin releases.  The rest of the boats reported to be fishing in the Poorman’s today.  The Tenacious returned with 4 yellowfin in the box while the Marli had 2 yellowfin and a dolphin.  The guys on the Primary Search returned with 2  yellowfin and 4 dolphin.  Some of the boats have decided to take advantage of the weather and stay out overnight.  Hopefully they come back with some exciting catches!

The cloudy start to the day turned into a beautiful evening here at the docks.  Many people were out and about enjoying their holiday weekend both at the Restaurant, in the ship stores and on the docks as well.  The weather forecast today allowed for the boats to head out once again to see what they could find.  All of our boats fishing today went to the Washington Canyon.  The common catch of the day was 6 yellowfin tuna with the crews of the Osprey, Hydrosphere, and Boss Hogg matching catches.  The Primary Search had 3 yellowfin tuna and the team on the Marli had 7 yellowfin tuna.  We are looking forward to see what the 4th brings tomorrow!!

We are entering into the month of July just right here at the marina.  Kicking off the holiday weekend we had a few boats venture out, successfully finding the tuna bite.  We had a few boats fishing in the Poorman’s today.  The crew on the Double J caught 6 yellowfin and a mahi.  The New Release returned with 2 yellowfin.  The rest of our boats fishing today were fishing in the Washington Canyon.  First back was the crew on the Husevo with 3 yellowfin.  Next we had the Marli with 9 yellowfin in the ice box.  Finally was the crew on the Bar South returning with 5 yellowfin.  Looks like the weather offshore is going to keep people at the docks but don’t let that ruin your holiday weekend.  Stop by, grab a cocktail, enjoy the bands playing at Teasers or stock up on your gear at both Atlantic Tackle and Sunset Provisions before heading off to those holiday barbecues!!

Today was a slow day here at the marina.  There were 10 charter boats that went out today and it was slim pickings for a lot of them.  The only  boat to come back to the docks with fish was the Big Stick.  They started the day by trolling for tunas in the morning, but had no luck.   In the afternoon they decided to try their luck fishing for swordfish.  Their decision paid off, returning to the dock with 2 swordfish.   The first swordfish weighed in at 288 lbs and the second was around 90 lbs.  They reported fishing in the Poor Mans Canyon.  We will keep you posted on what returns to the docks tomorrow.
