White Marlin Open Pre-Fishing

Had a practice day today running our tournament spread.  As we were fine tuning the spread the big girl came to play. Her first run she took 1000 yards in less than a minute, gave  chase and had her along for a clean release after half an hour. Estimated 12 feet , 500lbs. Congrats to Jamar on his first marlin. Great job by Capt Mark on lure and spread selection. Capt Matty and Mark on the leader and Cole, Dave and Ray for clearing lines. Teamwork makes the dream work. Just need this good karma/luck for this weeks White Marlin open!

Offshore Mixed Bag

Capt Matty was at the helm today, found the life inshore but tuna didn't want to cooperate. So he changed gears and ran offshore to load up tiles and mahi up to 25 lbs with Alex and his crew. Good day trip for tiles

Canyon Career Day - 650lb Mako

Had Dan and Anthony back for second trip of the summer. Guys wanted a mixed bag, started off with a dozen mahi, then went on the troll, missed a few bites then saw a big Mako, asked the boys if they wanted to step up to the big  leagues? They obviously stepped up after 2 hours they landed a 10 foot, 650lb mako weighed in at Hoffmans. Congrats guys!

Mixed Bag Canyon with Redding Crew and Inshore Tuna with 31FA

Had Orion and brothers Shelton and Jay and buddy Sean out on a super foggy day. Stopped inshore and got 3 yellows and a bluefin, got tired of trolling in fog so we made a sprint to the canyon got our first mahi of the season getting a half dozen then dropping in for tiles getting some nice ones to 15lbs. What made this trip a good one was Orion's brothers had never caught any offshore species. On the way home found some more bluefin to end the day. 

Capt Craig hosted regulars Manny and Jeremy on the 31FA and with  The thick fog they opted to stay inshore worked hard landing a 45 inch bluefin.

Tuna with Bobby Blackfish and Crew

Had regular Bobby B back with sons Andrew and RJ With nephews Glen and Bret, and buddy Tom. Bobby made it clear he wanted to pop his nephews cherries and jig some fish, demanding customer, but my dude, Lol.

Tuna fishing today on the Andrea’s Toy Fleet

Today was a milestone for the AT organization with both boats sailing today offshore! Capt Matty Rurka was at the helm with Willy at his side again hosting the Kaleigh Stallings charter from Texas on the 31FA, while I hosted a crew Of regulars and first timers to the Toy with the help of Tyler and  Jamar. We both made our way to the scene of Capt Matty's crush  job from his prior trip. Arrived to find the bait and marks but a very  scratchy bite. No matter for Capt Matty he proceeded to troll a few then Settled into a nice jig bite with first time tuna anglers getting over half  A dozen bites due to Willy's jigging prowess. We on the other hand  Struggled mightily all day, had no fish on the troll and only managed one Fish on the jig, great job Paul. Couldn't be any prouder of my team!

Mixed Bag with Mike Lennon Crew

Had first time customer and first time offshore fisherman Mike with buddies Anthony and James. Made our way offshore and Mike landed his first tuna ever, lost a few more and bite was a very slow pick landing  some short unders. Decided to start popping since there were thousands on the surface. Was a good call had 5 bites landing one but crazy action and the guys never saw tuna before. After that did some sharking with Mike landing a 100lb  Hammerhead. Did some jigging on the wrecks to end the trip. Great bunch of guys look forward to seeing them later in the summer.
