5 YEAR OLD GIRL CATCHES GRAND SLAM!!!
Offshore has really flowed right into August with a BANG!!! Our HUGE NEWS OF THE DAY goes directly to our very own TAYLOR COLLINS, Captain Lee Collins' daughter who runs the Strike 'Em! Taylor is FIVE YEARS OLD and caught a GRAND SLAM today!!!!!! This is completely unheard of and Taylors Dad even video taped her catching them! This was a huge thing to see for such a little tiny girl crank in a Blue Marlin, a Sailfish, and 2 White Marlins!!! A grand slam is a Blue, a White, and a Sail all caught on the same day! We are SO PROUD of you Taylor, you just made Grand Slam History!!! Check her out on our Facebook page, we will try to have her video's up there tomorrow!
We had another Bigeye Tuna weighed at the fish house this afternoon! They have been incredible this year, July received 59 Citations for Bigeyes alone and August is still providing us with a couple here and there! This Bigeye that was caught today weighed 179 lbs!!! Another stud!! That's over 100lbs of meat for one fish!!! There were more Blackfins caught today but there were still Yellowfins mixed in. A few dolphin were lined up but it was more of a tuna day really. Our most wonderful time of the year is finally starting. This Billfishing season has flowed right in and it is right on time for our Tournaments coming up next week! Our top boat for the billfishing today had 7 WHITE MARLIN and 3 SAILFISH!!! That's 10 releases!!! Way to go Captain Jesse and Chris!!! Also a round of applause for their anglers! Its a team effort on everyone and a good angler is the key to getting another release! As of today 'The Billfish Tally Board' has been created for August! It should be interesting what it reads at the end of the month! The board has all of our tally's for Blue and White Marlin and Sailfish releases! They are already high for the 8th day of the month and today they grew some more! This picture of the board is from yesterday but we will keep updating you with those results. Also on Facebook you will see more and more cool things like this so keep up with us!!!
This gorgeous Thursday we had today also provided our half day Inshore and Nearshore trips with some nice catches! We had Bluefish, a couple Spanish, a bunch of Triggerfish, bags of Speckled Trout Puppy Drum, and our good 'ol White Dotter Sharks! Which are super tasty! Our fly fishing boats also had great action with the Blacktip and Spinner Sharks and also the Speckled Trout! Fly fishing for Sharks must be insanely fun. I know how much fun they are to catch with a spinning rod so I can only imagine! The Speckled Trout catches were absolutely beautiful today. Their colors are so bold and defined even after you bring them home to the dock. You have to really get out there and experience trout fishing to be able to appreciate everything about them. We have trips available but the Inshore/Nearshore boats have been filling up by the end of each day so please act quickly!
