Birthday Bigeye, MRMTC Standings

Had Birthday boy Mark Cresenzo with son Joe, Mark B and Al. Decided at the minute to fish the Manasquan river club tourney. Made our way out to the Hudson In a little over 2 hours. Started with mahi, but not the size we wanted. Went on the troll for wahoo since its part of the Calcuttas but seeing so many Pilots whales we went on the bigeye hunt. Got our first bite at 7pm and birthday 
Boy Mark landed our first bigeye, Mark B followed up with the next fish that he landed being our biggest at 191lbs and putting us at second place in the tourney. An hour later we got our 3rd fish, landed him and decided it was time to give the tunas a break, eat dinner relax and go for swords till first light. No bites and ended up mahi fishing landing over 50, but none that put us on the leader board.

Tuna trip with the Hurley Family

Did my first offshore trip with the new engines today. Had James with his
Sons Ryan and Griff and brother John and Greg. Slugged it out in a stiff northeast 70 miles to the first spot, had flying fish and birds in clean water no luck, pushed further off and found tons of whales and porpoise but no luck, after hours of trolling with no luck decided to jig and drop bait, first sardine that hit the bottom got inhaled by a nice yellowfin, figured we found the mother lode,
But that was it. Good guys to fish with and engines ran great!
