Well, What can we say we had an absolute awesome Overnight trip. We steamed up to Cape May to pick up the Gang from RisingTideMedia/Sportfishermen.com. John Eppehimer, Timmy Hand and Mary Innman. Also joining us were Capt. Joe Trainor, Capt. Jason and our mate Joe Bonvetti.
We steamed north to the Lindekhol Canyon, about 5 miles from our starting point we found a weed line that stretched on for what looked to be miles. So out goes the gear and within minutes we got covered up with Mahi-Mahi and good size fish too. They ranged from 10 to 20lbs all caught on light tackle so it was a lot of fun. Once we got about 25 in the box.
We decided to head on out to the deep, so we put out the big guns and proceeded to troll. It became Game On shortly after that as Mary Inmann boated the first yellowfin of the day with the first fish on the troll into the ice he went. So everything went back to the troll just settled in out of no were something went slamming into a pink and black Islander. John E, was on the rod and we proceeded to watch a nice Blue Marlin go aerial for us and didn’t want to slow down. Unfortunately she came unbuttoned.
Following the Blue Timmy Hand ended his drought of not catching a white Marlin with a nice white putting on a wonderful display for us. We ended up with Joe, Jason and Joe B putting a few more tuna’s on ice before we set up in the deep for our night bite.
The Tuna bit funny through out the night with us icing up a handful more. Two Highlights of the night was our own Capt. Johny Oughton icing a nice 80+lb Allison and Joe Trainor also released a fiesty Swordfish late. The what ifs started after that as we would of had a Grand slam you don’t see that often if the Blue Marlin stayed on for a release.
We have plenty of dates between now and Oct 7th and the fishing has really heated up!!!!!!!!
