Great day offshore to celebrate Austin's father's birthday. We went 8 for 8 on yellow fin tuna and 0/1 on white marlin. The marlin took the flat line bait and became unhooked shortly after the angler settled in for battle.
Our first overnight trip aboard the FINATIC this season was a success! We ended up going 6-7 on Mako sharks and brought the 1st Mako of the season back to the Ocean City Fishing Center.
Saturday June 22nd in the Poormans Canyon. Caught 12 yellowfin tuna all but 2 were undersized. We also caught 2 mahi and a skipjack tuna. Great trip with a great crew. We look forward to a future trip with them!
We fished the 20 Fathom Fingers with hopes of hooking a thresher or mako shark. After several hours of drifting we were finally rewarded with a nice blue shark that ate a whole bluefish bait. Austin Ellis was the angler and this was Austin's first time shark fishing offshore. Congrats on your catch Austin!
