Bluefin Tuna and Mahi
We fished just north of Massey's Canyon today hoping for a bluefin tuna bite. We left the slip at 4:15 am and made the 32 mile trip north from the Ocean City Inlet. We ran a 4 rod spread with Joe Chute lures rigged with ballyhoo. Within 10 minutes of deploying the rods we had a fish on. After a brief battle we boated a 52" / 72 lb bluefin tuna. We had one other fish on but it became tangled in another anglers trolling spread and I cut the fish off. It was then we decided to try shark fishing since the seas began to build. We ran westward towards the 20 fathom line to setup for sharks. Soon after I placed the chum bag in the water we were swarmed with mahi. We ended up catching 2 mahi and no sharks.
This was a special trip for me since this was my niece's first offshore fishing trip/experience. She caught her very first and hopefully not her last mahi. Mike Liles also shared a special trip with his daughter, Tiff, and his future son in law.
