Sooooo Friday was a pretty crazy day. It all started with 19 of our boats leaving to go offshore on a windy 5 a.m. morning. Being that it was the last day of the Pirate's Cove Big Game Tournament it was a big deal that our guys made their last day count! Unfortunately, some of them got about 5 miles out and just couldn't take it anymore because it was so rough. Almost all of the boats turned around and headed home. Out of everyone, 6 from our fleet didn't go home and decided to stick it out. What I later found out was that there was actually a small depression off the coast that came and went but made it pretty tough on our guys. Our guys ended up with 12 White Marlin and 2 Blue Marlin total for the day. Out of 9 of our boats from OIFC we are proud to say that the Rigged Up won FIRST place in the Blue Marlin category with their 400.1 fish! They also placed 1st and 2nd in the Tuna category! This landed our boys a fat check of $99,330.00!!! WAY TO GO GUYS!!!!
The Marlin fishing is straight up GOING OFF!!! (That would be a great boat name too by the way.... JUST SAYING) All of our Offshore boats were fishing in the tournament so there were no other fish to report.
NEARSHORE's still made it out on their AM trips and had some excellent luck with the Bluefish! There were over 150 caught just between 4 boats! We only had 1 INSHORE boat fish but they caught some Speckled Trout and a really nice Puppy Drum. They've been getting 'em good! Take a minute and plan yourself a trip with one of our first class charter boats before this summer is really over. This is what you want, good fishing right? 252.441.6301
