698 LB BLUE MARLIN, 21 WHITE MARLIN, AND YELLOWFINS!
The day started out slow being we only had 15 boats fishing and they were all Offshore boats. The weather was a little too choppy for our Inshore and Nearshore fleet to chance it. The guys started coming in close to 4:00 with some gorgeous Yellowfin Tuna's, a couple Dolphin, 2 Wahoo, and a few billfish releases. We had 36 White Marlin released, with one boat catching 21 of them! Congratulations to Team Bi-Op-Sea for a great day and also winning the Oregon Inlet Billfish RoundUp Tournament- with their catch of 11 whites and a Blue the first day, 8 whites the second, and 21 White Marlin on the last day! That's 41 fish in 3 days!!! Great job guys!!!
There were a few boats that really got in the bite yesterday from 21, 12 and 10 White Marlin releases!
One of our boats had a phenomenal day with their total of 3 Blue Marlin, 3 Sailfish, and 5 Yellowfin Tunas. These guys not only caught 3 Blue ones in one day but the last fish was brought to the weigh scales this time. At 698 lbs the fish was a MONSTER! We have not seen a fish that big come in to the marina in a while now. Congratulations to the Dream Girl on your day! Captain Carson Forrester and Mate William Howell (19 years old) did an outstanding job. For a 19 year old to already have a fish like that under his belt is beyond exciting!!! For all of you who wonder what we do with a fish that size, you CAN eat Blue Marlin! And WE DO! They are having it lined up to be smoked, which is the best way to eat it! There were 5 Blue Marlin total that were caught and 5 Sailfish! 50 Billfish for our Saturday! Not bad at all!
This week has really shown more Blue Marlin than we have seen and our Billfish board is getting higher and higher every day! There are over 900 White Marlin releases already for the Month of September and it is only the 14th! This is a big deal after the August fishing we had that was 1,023 Whites for the whole month! Fishing has been insane this year and the good signs keep rolling in, PLEASE do yourselves a favor and be a part of it!!! Call us anytime between 4:30 AM and 7:00 PM to book a boat of your choice, get on a Make-Up trip, or go out on our lovely headboat the Miss Oregon Inlet! She sails one trip a day now until Halloween and it leaves the dock at 8:00 and gets back at 12:30. Our Make-Up trips can be for Offshore or Nearshore. Offshore is $292 per person and Nearshore is $90 per person. Nearshore is harder to put together so if you can let us know early there will be a much better chance. Inshore has been really getting the Speckled Trout and Puppy Drum, and we are still seeing Cobia's brought in! Nearshore has had some excellent Bluefish fishing and we just saw our first sign of King Mackerels this week! So take your pick, Tuna salad or Mackerel salad!
