Away from the tournament….today I got a pic of one of the biggest wahoo that I’ve seen in a long time.  This past Friday the crew of the Decisions decked this 74″, 109 pounder!

Yesterday my buddy Steve Murphy of Ropewalk OC caught and released this white marlin on Mike Fitzgerald’s Sea Laser out of Indian River Inlet.

Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star reported a slow start, but it picked up nicely after lunch.

Hi Scott,
‘Twas a very slow start. I was really starting to worry whether I could find enough hungry fish (& legal!) to get in clients’ good graces by filling their fry daddies. 
Our luck turned before lunch when a few pretty cbass crossed the rail. They continued to bite the rest of the day. A light, fussy bite; but good enough to get the job done, especially by staying an hour late — Dinner Baby! 
Keith Lengal of Jonestown PA swept the pool with his nice sea bass. 
Rachel Tang From Richmond VA caught well. 
In the group snap are Eddy Beadle of Jonestown PA – David Dinsmore of Forest Hill MD –  Rachel Tang again – Diego Iturbe from Mexico City, Mexico – & Jason Dinsmore of Forest Hill MD

Paul Coughhenour (first pic)  Rodney Biskub (2nd pic) and Avery Meena, with her sister and brother had some terrific luck aboard the Judith M out of Bahia Marina with Captain John Bunting at the helm.

Captain Marc Spagnola of Dusk to Dawn Bowfishing was at it again today putting his shooters on some great shots at cow nosed and southern rays in the south bay.
