Dogone sure looked like we were gonna get a mini butt-kickin from seas this morning. Did first thing I suppose. Don’t know where those swells came from, but by 11:30 they’d departed in similar fashion – got pretty out
..then the fish quit biting.
Darn the luck!
So we fished harder.
Didn’t help much. Some though. Jeff Matteson of OPs limited on mahi. Two days ago I’d have said that was rare as hen’s teeth.
We didn’t have a good sea bass bite at all. Kept after it though. Only species for the pool. Young Landon Kirwan of Salisbury took everyone’s pool money today with a right decent cbass. Look out Boardwalk arcades!
Glad we had a good morning bite.
Late in the best part of today’s bite I watched as a highly skilled angler set up on a twenty pound class bull mahi. Did everything perfectly -perfect- fish flipped him the fin and spit the hook.
Lost another similar sized fish almost 10 minutes into the fight. Light leader chaffed through. Then we lost another on the troll..
Melissa Schworn of Fenwick Island brought hers to net though. Thirty one inches & 11 lbs, an inshore jumbo!
Have two sold out dolphin trips coming. See what we can do with em.
