First back to the dock today was the ‘Osprey’ who ventured to the Rockpile catching 20 dolphin and releasing 2 white marlin. Also fishing in the Rockpile today was the ‘Marli’ who brought back an impressive 60 dolphin back to the dock.

As you can see the white marlin bite is still red hot and doesn’t show any signs of stopping anytime soon.

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.
