  • First Marlin

    Good day everyone. This is a late report for 6-8-2018. Left Beaufort Inlet around 0600 with great seas with intentions on heading to Big Rock NE. Decided to put line in just past the 14 buoy and managed to catch a nice Mahi that was unintentionally released. Pushed on out to the 90 and shagged weeds for what seemed like forever. We did manage to get 2 nice Mahi from the work we put in. Around noon we started heading out to Big Rock NE and the starboard outrigger clip pops. The TLD 50 was setting off the alarm that we hooked into something nice. After a 20 minute fight a White Marlin is billed and release from the side of the boat. High fives all around. Throw out a Jag-a-Hoo on our way to do some bottom fishing and managed to put another Mahi in the boat. Let the kids catch some bottom critters. Around 4:30pm we came back through the inlet only to find my boss coming through the inlet as well and hailing me on the radio asking what we caught. Great Day!
