I titled yesterday’s Daily Angle, “Will They Still Be Around” because we’ve had a couple of blow days and no one has been able to do any offshore fishing.  This time of year, the white marlin bite can end abruptly as the fish migrate to the south and we usually find out they’re gone after a couple of windy non-fishable days.  Well I got the answer I was looking for today and it was a resounding YES!

Not only are the fish still around, for at least one more day they were around in really good numbers.  Captain Luke Blume and mate Jon Henry fishing on the C Boys out of Sunset Marina had an awesome day fishing the Baltimore Canyon today.  Captain Luke and Jon put their crew on 10 white marlin releases out of 14 bites and boxed three big yellowfin tuna that averaged 70 pounds.  This is a great sign for some late September fishing.

Anglers on the Boss Hogg with Captain Brian Porter had a stellar day in the Washington Canyon today.  The crew combined for three white marlin releases, 33 mahi and a gorgeous 48 pound wahoo.


Captain Joe Drosey on Rhonda’s Osprey was on the white marlin today as well, putting his crew on three releases.


The crew of the Spring Mix II with Captain Steve Selander and mate Captain Chris Watkowski had a short day, but were still able to release two white marlin in the Washington Canyon.

Inshore, Captian Chris Mizurak on the party boat Angler out of the Talbot Street Pier reported some decent flounder fishing today.  There were several nice fish caught on ocean structure fishing clam and strip baits and one false albacore came over the rail as well.
