Well we made it across yesterday and started with an aggravating day. We started 90 miles East of Ft. Pierce and right out of the gate hooked and LOST two yellowfins est. over 100. Then we raise a double header blue marlin, hook one and fight her boat-side for 15 minutes only to chafe through our 80# flouro. The afternoon got a bit better, we ended up catching some nice yellowfins a couple blackfins and dolphin. Geoff was near me in the a.m. and ended up easing to the North a bit (like I should have!) and putting on a clinic. They caught 7 yellowfins the smallest around 65 pounds the largest buried a 100 pound scale. They also had a few nice dolphin. I heard the fleet on the corner had a good day, catching plenty of yellowfins and several blue marlin. All together fishing was pretty fantastic. The ride home was a little bumpy and that should continue through the week. The fish should get a little rest before the weekend.
I haven't heard anything from inshore since the weekend.
Have a great week, get re-spooled and sharpen your hooks!
Below is a picture of a triple we caught at the end of the day. Will Holcomb, Moon Crossman, and Trey Smith on the "Broadbill".
