It was a sunny beautiful day at the marina and things finally started to feel like summer! We have more and more boats returning everyday which is a reminder that the season is upon us! We had a few of our boats head offshore today in search of the tuna. The fish did not let them down with most returning with a ice box full of yellowfin. The first boat to return was the Fish On who fished the Wilmington and caught 14 yellowfin. Fishing alongside them in the Wilmington was the crew of the Reel Chaos catching 17 yellowfin. Finally the crew of the Boss Hogg was fishing the Spencer today and caught 20 yellowfin. Looks like the fishing action is heating up so give us a call to book your next fishing trip or stop by grab a cocktail at the bar, and watch the action live at the docks.
