It was another great day at the marina while temperatures were still on the high side there was a nice breeze to keep things tolerable.  There was more activity on the docks today as many of the crews were working on routine maintenance to make sure they are ready to go the next time they head out on the water.  The crew of the Marli had another awesome day returning from the Baltimore with 4 bluefin tuna and 7 dolphin.  Our only other boat the headed out today was the Double J.  They ventured out to the Washington Canyon and brought 7 dolphin and 2 yellowfin back to the docks.

Not much activity on the docks today as the heat kept most people more at the pool than on the docks.  We did have a few more of our boats arrive for the season which is always exciting to welcome them back for another exciting year!   The crew of the Marli went at it again today and had another successful trip.  They returned from the Baltimore Canyon with 19 mahi and 1 bluefin tuna in the ice box.  With temperatures remaining high tomorrow we shall see what happens!

It was a little slower around the marina today then it was yesterday with only the “Marli” venturing offshore. Captain Mark Hoos headed out to the Poor Man’s Canyon today and didn’t come back empty handed, returning back to the dock with 3 dolphin. The weather looks fantastic the rest of the week, so hopefully the fleet is able to get out and find those tunas again!
