Tuna and Marlin oh my! August 22, 2012

Today was a busy day at the fishing center. All of our boats that left in the hopes of finding fish today, had a good deal of success. The “All In” with Captain James Coane released 2 white marlin today while trolling at the Baltimore canyon. Captain Franky Pettolina aboard the “Last Call” assisted two junior anglers in landing their first white marlins, which was followed by another white marlin release and some gaffer dolphin to complete the day. The “Game Over” with Captain Steve Pfeiffer at the helm hooked two nice blue marlin today and 2 dolphin. Another blue marlin was released as well as a white marlin on the “Moore Bills” with Captain Rob Skillman today. The boys on the “Tighten Up” led by Captain Jason Genthner managed to slide into first in marlin releases at the marina today, with the addition of 2 more white marlin releases bringing their total to 30. Captain Wade Lober on the “Why Not” found THE fish today. Captain Wade returned to the scales at the mid-Atlantic 500 with a white marlin which is currently in first place. Congrats to Captain Wade. The “Jade II” with Captain Ed Kauffman led his crew to 5 very nice yellow fin today while fishing deep in the Baltimore canyon. The heaviest tuna weighed in at 67 pounds. After returning from an overnighter the private boat the “Luna-Sea” with Captain Larry Dougherty returned with a very nice wahoo, some dolphin, and an assortment of tuna. Captain Ron Callis on the “Reel Addiction” returned from a “deep- drop” trip with 18 tilefish, and 22 very large sea bass. Further inshore Captain Mark Sampson on the “Fish Finder” caught and released a variety of fish species today including sea trout, bluefish, kingfish, croakers, dusky, and sand tiger sharks. The bay fishing really picked up today. Captain Nick Clemente on the “Get Sum” reported having one of his best trips yet. The crew limited out on flounder on their morning trip with a total of 13 keepers. The following two trips produced another keeper flounder as well as throwback flounder and croakers. The “Bay Bee” our bay fishing head boat had a total of 4 keeper flounder today, a keeper croaker, and a triggerfish, along with an abundance of throwbacks. Tomorrow is the 4th day of the Mid-Atlantic 500 and should be another exceptional fishing day.
