Venturing to the Baltimore Canyon today was the ‘Osprey’ releasing 3 white marlin, the ‘Marli’ catching 100 dolphin and releasing 5 white marlin, the ‘Reel Joy’ catching 5 dolphin and releasing 1 blue marlin, and lastly the ‘Reel Chaos’ catching 20 dolphin and releasing 1 white marlin.

After a quiet and tense few days here around the marina the forecast finally allowed for some of the fleet to head back out and see what they could find. The Poor Man’s Canyon was the popular fishing grounds today and the first back to the dock was the crew of the Reel Toy with a wheelbarrow’s worth of dolphin. The next boat in was the crew of the ‘Bar South’ returning with 5 white releases and a few dolphin. Right behind them was the ‘Intents’ with 4 white marlin releases and then the crew of ‘Reel chaos’ who had 4 white releases and 12 dolphin. We continue to monitor the hurricane Florence carefully, however today’s projections seem to be bringing good news for the weekend. Make sure you stay tuned!!
Although the fishing still seems to be steady the fish have definitely spread out a bit, sending our captains and there crews to various locations up and down the coast. Fishing in the Rockpile today was the ‘Marli’ catching 25 dolphin and releasing one white marlin, as well as the ‘Slauhgterhouse’ catching 1 dolphin and releasing 4 white marlin. Fishing alone in the Hot Dog today was the ‘No Quarter’ releasing 2 white marlin.

The kids may be back in school, but that’s not stopping the marlin bite off of our coast! In the Poor Mans was the ‘Reel Chaos’ (Released 2 Whites), ‘C-Boys’ (1 White Release and 15 Dolphin), ‘Pumpin Hard’ (4 White releases), and ‘Buckshot’ (5 White Releases and 1 Sailfish) fished the Poor Mans. The ‘Marli’ fished the Rockpile- returning with 1 Sailfish release and 1 White release. Between the Poormans and the Rockpile was the ‘Boss Hogg’- who released 5 whites and brought back 25 dolphin. The ‘Blood Money’ returned this morning from an overnighter in the Hudson Canyons, flying 15 White Marlin release flags and a Blue release, which he said had quite some size to it. The White releases, while slacked off, are holding steady and with the introduction of a couple sails into the mix the crews are quite pleased with the turnout. A good chunk of the fleet expects to fish tomorrow before rough seas are expected to hit on Saturday.
