Default 91# Bluefin Today - Regulator is 0 for 3 - 50 Tickets Left for AC Seminar

It seems like the bite is a little better over the past few days or we are just seeing a little luck after a slow 3 weeks in December but Capt. Mark nailed a fat 91" Giant this morning on our 48' Canyon Runner. No details or pictures yet as he is still fishing looking for a double and the SAT phone is not working to well.

On an un-lucky note Capt. Eddie has been fishing our 32' Regulator hard down there this past week and has gotten his bites but run into some hard luck. His first bite on Saturday was a double and he broke one off and pulled the hook 50' from the boat. Yesterday's fish was more of a hard breaker as some rough times at boat side saw the fish pull the hook. At least the 32' Regulator is getting the bites but it would be nice for the boys on that boat to break the ice with a fish.

Also I just wanted to quickly remind everyone we are very close to being sold-out for the Atlantic City Seminar.

We are offering a FREE squid spreader bar for any groups of 4 purchasing tickets together. So if you haven't done so please call the office at 732-842-6825.

Default RE: 91# Bluefin Today - Regulator is 0 for 3 - 50 Tickets Left for AC Seminar

I guess I should have waited to put up this post but they did indeed hook-up again on a rigger bait with a pink and crystal Joe Shute lure. The fish nearly spooled the 130 Penn International and the boys ended up cutting off two of the rods they couldn't clear in time to aviod getting spooled.

They enventually were fortunate enough to get the fish within dart range and planted the Poon Harpoon and are on there way home with two. This fish might be our biggest of the season down there as she is 96" but much fatter than the first fish we caught back in December.

Looks like a lay day tomorrow so Mark will get up some pictures and more detail then.

I also found out why luck was on our side today as we had Mike Lockwood on the boat with us - no stranger to big fish this past year as that is the same Lockwood that killed the 935 Blue Marlin this year at the WMO.
