The Kid’s First White Marlin

By Scott Lenox

The Kid’s First White Marlin

After a couple of days of windy weather, the offshore fleet was able to get back out to the canyons today and the fish were right where they left them.  The white marlin fishing was fantastic again with some boats catching a dozen or more fish in spots from the Wilmington down to the Norfolk.  There were also some tuna caught which is a good sign for guys that will start tuna fishing after the white marlin have left the building.

It’s always a cool thing when someone catches their first white marlin.  It’s way cool when the angler is only ten years old, and it’s super cool when it’s your “nephew”.  Captain Luke Blume on the C Boys with mate Jon Henry had the owner out today and they were nice enough to let Luke’s son Joshua ride along for the trip.  It was a really cool surprise when owner Paul Crampton called 10-year old Joshua to the rod when the first fish was hooked.  He did a great job getting the fish to the boat for the release and to keep with tradition he jumped in the harbor on returning to the dock.  C Boys also released another four white marlin for a total of five and a nice day on the water.  Way to go Joshua!!

Captain Joe Drosey on Rhonda’s Osprey was out in the canyons as well today and had a good day with the white marlin.  Captain Joe put his crew on seven white marlin releases and a nice yellowfin tuna.


Captain Brandon Speilman on the Reel Direct out of the Ocean City Fishing Center had a good day in the deep today.  The crew of Reel Direct saw 20 white marlin going seven for nine bites and they jumped off a blue marlin.  The crew also boxed two yellowfin tuna and 13 mahi.

Austin Ensor and his boys on the Primary Search were on the briny blue today, but their focus was tuna fish.  Austin may be a weekend warrior now, but he showed today he’s still got skills.  Austin and crew managed five yellowfin tuna, some nice mahi and added some triggerfish for good measure.

Captain Chris Mizurak on the Angler out of the Talbot Street Pier reported a nice day of fishing on ocean structure today.  Captain Chris put his anglers on good sea bass and flounder fishing with some nice fish and a couple of flounder limits.  There was at least one false albacore that came over the rail as well.
