After an eventful week during the White Marlin Open the docks were certainly quiet this afternoon! A few of our boats ventured out to the Poorman’s Canyon in search of some more white marlin. The ‘Marli’ arrived back to the dock first this afternoon with 1 blue release, 2 white releases, and 1 dolphin. The ‘No Quarter’ returned shortly after, after a tremendous day of fishing releasing 2 blue marlin and 4 white marlin. The ‘Theresa Jean’ returned from the Poorman’s with 4 white marlin releases and 19 dolphin.  As the marlin bite stays consistent, more and more boats are venturing out in search of a good bite!
