With the weather keeping the boats at the dock we had a long run of quiet days here at the marina.  Today was the first time there was a break in the weather allowing for a decent day.  We saw lots of transient traffic with boats taking the opportunity to start their treks south.  We also had a good bit of boats head offshore searching for the marlin bite.  First back to the dock was the crew on the Marli returning with a nice bunch of mahi and some tile fish.  Following behind them was the crew on the Boss Hogg who also had a good mix of mahi and tilefish.  Both boats reported to be in the Poormans.  The rest of the fleet went to the Washington today.   The Par Five had three white releases.  Next, we had the Fish On return with three white releases while also catching a wahoo and 5 mahi.  The crew on the Buckshot had one white release. The DA Sea came home with a white release as well and finally we had the crew on he Seven with 2 white releases!  Not bad for a rainy Sunday!
